“I took off my wedding band and engagement ring while nursing my son one day because I didn't want to scratch him. The next morning, I went to put them back on before work, and I could only find my wedding band. I searched every single place I could think of -- and then I had the realization that the dog ate it. We took the dog to the vet that afternoon, and sure enough, it was in his tummy. Thankfully, we were able to retrieve it -- and I got it professionally cleaned before I wore it again!” -- IamAli
“We were kayaking in the Long Island Sound, and I hopped out into the water to help my stepdaughter with her kayak. It was freezing, and my fingers shrunk instantly. I took my engagement ring off to hand it to my husband so he could put it in his pocket, and I dropped it and lost it while handing it to him!” -- Frkls

“I lost my wedding band during a lunch run one day. I was freaking out looking for it and thought to call the place where I had gone to lunch. Thankfully, one of their employees found my ring and gave it to a supervisor. I described my ring, they confirmed it was mine, and I went back and picked it up. I sent thank-you notes to the employee, a note to his supervisor and an email to their corporate headquarters. The man that found my wedding band was my hero!” -- His#1Girl
“My husband lost his at a house party. We found it the next day in the gin bucket pitcher. For real.” -- eye-sharted4sure
“I took my rings (engagement and wedding) off at the local children's museum to put sunscreen on my daughter. She played for a while, we left, and as we were driving home, I realized that they were still on the outdoor table where I'd laid them down. I turned around, called the museum on my cell phone, and one of their employees walked out to the table with the phone. She found them on the ground, and I picked them up a few minutes later. I don't think I've ever felt closer to a heart attack. I was a teary mess until I had them on my finger again.” -- lite-bright
“During the week of 9/11, I took my ring off because my fingers were swelling. I put it in my drawer and took a shower. When I came out of the shower, I noticed my drawer was open and all the rings on my ring holder were gone. Just then, my three-year-old son came walking into the bedroom. He was only wearing underwear and he pulled out the waistband, looked in and said, ‘I don't have Mommy's big ring!’ All my other rings were in his ‘pirate stash’ under the kitchen table, but we never found my emerald-cut diamond ring. I tried not to be upset, as so many people lost so much more than a ring that week. But I still miss it.” -- froufrugal
“I lost my ring and found it months later. We sold our car, and when the dealership was cleaning it, they found it under the seat. My husband lost his ring delivering a calf; it’s still missing!” -- huber22

“My BFF's husband lost his ring on their honeymoon, while playing volleyball in shallow water. In the process of looking for it, he stepped on a stingray and had to be rushed to a hospital, which was a 45-minute boat ride away. That night, there was a 7.3 earthquake that convinced BFF they were about to die. Neither of them had been in an earthquake before.” -- CheesierThanProvolone
“My husband lost his ring taking off his gloves after shoveling snow one winter. A neighbour found it and returned it - about a month later when all of the snow finally melted. Of course, by then we’d already bought a replacement, assuming that it had rolled down the storm drain he was standing next to when it happened. So now he has a spare.” -- candreco
“I lost my e-ring in the ocean when we were on our honeymoon, but found it with MUCH panicked searching. And he lost his wedding ring in the woodpile behind our shed. We're doomed.” -- Jermysgirl
“I lose it all the damn time. I'm the worst with jewelry. I actually keep my engagement ring in our safe-deposit box for this reason.” -- LucyHoneychrrch

My father lost his wedding ring, or so we thought, while golfing. It was a rather wide band and it bothered him when trying to swing a club. As a result, he removed it and placed it in his pocket prior to every round. One day, prior to the 19th hole, he went to retrieve the ring from his pocket only to realize it was gone. Ok, how does he explain this to my mom!
Jump ahead 20 or so years.........the grounds crew at the golf course were digging up a tee-off box when they noticed something shiny in the dirt. It was a ring, a ring with an inscription. Now, seeing as my father was a member of the club for over 30 years everyone, including the grounds crew, knew him.
My father passed away several years ago; married to my mother for nearly 50 years, and he had his wedding ring back!
I lost mine one year,I was raking leaves with garden gloves and the ring came off in the glove,I never noticed it was missing till my wife asked me where it was, after searching for about a month we gave up.Next fall while putting on the gloves it was found.Moral of my story check gloves first
