Have you ever lost your Class, Engagement, or Wedding ring? Or perhaps a similar item of value? Maybe even an item of great sentimental value. I lost my College Class ring. I took it off while playing touch football with family and friends placing it on the steps leading to our house. When I went for a walk I forgot I had placed it there, then I remembered, and when I returned home it was gone. I did replace it, but nothing has the same sentimental value as the original. How about you? What were the circumstances behind your lost item. And did you find it? Photo- pinterest google images

My wedding band accidentally got flushed down a toilet. Bruce, my husband then, bought me a new one:)

Glad you got it replaced. That is one expensive toilet now or the fish who accidently swallowed it.

An ex girlfriend kept my class ring when we broke up. I'm guessing she no longer has it.

Pawn shop? That is probably where mine wound up

I would be so bummed out if I lost my I pod. My music is so important to me even though I could replace it.

@dgobucks226 I lost my wedding ring when I was swimming in a river. I was made to feel a bit bad but then my wife lost hers - twice - and my losing mine hasn't been mentioned since.

Turnabout is fair play? Just kidding, it is a horrible feeling! It still bothers me losing my ring and it was many years ago now.

Sentimental items lost which can't be replaced are the hardest to deal with for me.

One diamond earring (one of two of course!) which my husband had bought me soon after our wedding. I felt like I had broken some trust. Devatasted! (one of our babies liked playing with mum's ears. Like I was her pet dog .)

Earrings are an item that can easily get lost or misplaced. So sorry! Babies do like shiny objects don't they. Thanks for sharing

I lost a gold charm bracelet given by my work colleagues as a good-bye token. I hardly ever wore it, and had kept it for many years. One day I decided to wear it and I must have not put the latch properly. I had a thick wool jacket on too that day. It slipped off my wrist without me realizing - I did try to trace my steps back best I could hoping it was laying on the ground somewhere, but nope, it was lost forever...

I lost my signet ring that my parents bought for me when I turned 10, David, I lost it when we moved and I have never replaced it, because it wouldn't have the sentimental value. Sorry you lost your College Class ring.

Yes, I can understand about not replacing something of sentiment it loses the meaning behind it as you said. At least you had many more years ahead of you to acquire more jewelry for birthdays, graduation and so on... I replaced the college ring although it doesn't have the same meaning as the original to me. So I do understand "C."
