EEP!!! Guess what I did today!!!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I was cleaning my engagement ring, with that blue jewelry cleaner stuff, and I dropped my ring!! In the sink!!! Down the GARBAGE DISPOSAL!!!!!! I was on the phone with my fiance's twin, and just burst into tears. I got so upset. He told me to calm down and call Alex.

Well, I did, and fortunately, Alex came and stuck his hand down there and fished it out, with me sobbing in the background the whole time! I was so scared I lost it!!!! Whew!!! It's OK though, cuz I got it back. But, man, I just about had a heart attack! I'm not going to be cleaning it over the kitchen sink anymore!!!!

Wow, good that you got it back. I think I know how you feel, I lost a beautyful pearl ring my s/o gave me and I am NAKED when I dont have it. I cant understand how I lost it, I still hope I magically will find it. And then I had another ring he gave me, also with a pearl, bigger, and another stone, a ring I wore on special days. The pearl fell out of that one, and we took it for repair, then the next time I wore it the pearl fell out again, and this time I didn´t find it. I feel so bad, it´s like I don´s apriciate his presents, but I really do...

Oh lord I know how you feel!
I am soooo paranoid about my ring, probably too much.
With in 24 hours of getting it, the center stone broke off some how, somewhere, and of course I couldn't find it.
And it took me like I dunno a month or so to get it replaced and have the ring back.
I left it at an old clients house once, (I take it off to clean my hands, I'm paranoid that water will make the stones come loose). So I was searchign my house, didn't find it. Had to drive back to my clients house just on a whim and hope it was there.

So now whenever I hit it on something specially while I'm cleaning, my heart sinks cause I just know I've knocked off another stone or something! (Though it hasn't happened again.)
My fiance gets upset when I take my ring off to wash my hands or take a shower, he's afraid himself or one of the cats will knock it down the drain.

Water will not make the stone to become loose,bumping it may.Remeber never wear it if you are going to put your hand in bleach.you should have your ring checked by a jewerler once a year to have your ring checked for loose mount's.The mounts are what makes you loose a stone,they will bend out of shape .When you take them off do you have a ring holder to put the rings on?There are ton;s to choose from.It is much harder to lose a ring if you put them on one.

I take mine off, when I'm in the shower or putting on lotion. Since the time that Rowdy stole it, it goes into a trinket box. Being an antique, mine has a heavier setting, than modern ones.

That's a good idea with putting a washcloth over the drain. (There is no stopper for this sink.) I'll probably just start doing it in the bathroom, where I CAN stop-up the drain. But it's all fine now, since I didn't lose it after all. I'll be double-careful in the future, though!!!!
