Word of the Week: Rings

This week it hasn't been the babies waking me up in the middle of the night. Oh no as I toss and turn fearing the worst it’s enough to wake me in a blind panic and feel sick to the stomach. I have spent the week upset thinking that my rings may have been accidentally hovered up.

Hubby placing the rings on my fingers at our weding


I've a number of pieces of jewellery but the only ones that have a special place in my heart are predominantly three rings.

The first was given to me by my husband when we first got together.  He’d found the ring after metal detecting and decided to hold on to it and give it to someone special when he met them. That person he decided was me and I recall being so touched by his sentiments that I was moved to tears.

The second ring given to me by my husband was my engagement ring. This ring was bought at an antique shop and the lady behind the counter happened to know my father. My husband to be actually forgot to ask for my dad’s permission for my hand in marriage whoops.

My wedding ring and the most important of the three rings was made to fit my engagement ring. It’s rather simple in design but unique and personal.

All three rings were blessed in church by our vicar at our wedding.

Having spent a number of days fretting about the loss of my rings I woke up to news yesterday of someone else who’d lost theirs and had to dredge a stretch of water before finding it. Fortunately, we didn't have to go to that length but I did turn the house upside down in order to find them. They are now safely in my sights and I'm not letting them out of my sight again.


Have you ever misplaced your rings?

    1. I've now set up dedicated ring spots in the house so if I take them off they'll be in one of them

  2. No, not lost, but last year just before our wedding anniversary I lost the stone out of my wedding ring. We looked everywhere, even took sinks apart to look in the drains. We never found it so i had to replace the stone. It's not the same as the original, but I will have the setting checked each year and make sure I don't lose it.

  3. I am so glad you found your rings! I'd hate to lose mine. Lost one of mine in the garden once and it was a horrible feeling. I did find it again after an hour or two. Hope sleep improves now. #wotw

  9. I'm so glad you found them. I would be very upset to lose my rings. Years ago my now-husband - then a still relatively new boyfriend - bought me a diamond solitaire necklace which he said one day we could have re-set into an engagement ring. But sadly the chain broke while I was out one day and it was lost. I was so upset! He ended up having to buy me a completely new diamond eventually! #kcacols

  13. You are fortunate. I have lost every ring I have ever owned. Never been married, but I've had a few - one of my late uncle's in particular makes me cringe when I think of having lost it. It was nothing spectacular, but it was him, you know? Ah, well. So it goes. I can't keep hold of a pair of sunglasses either. Good post! #weekendblogshare

  14. I am so relieved to hear you found them, I lost a piece of jewellery that was my late nans last year and I still haven't found it I've had to accept it's gone but it still makes me feel so sad when I think about it. #WotW

  15. Oh I understand your panic and franticness...I can visualise you turning the house upside down because I lost my wedding ring once. A horrid feeling.
    So glad you have your rings back

  16. I have been very lucky when it comes to rings. One, I lost my ring in the beach... imagine searching it in the sand. Finally we gave up and sat down to at least enjoy the time. When we decided to pack up, we found the ring tucked inside the fold of a towel. I was happy as if I got a new ring :P
