Three Rings lost by angry girls mad at their guys
Seven by the drunkards, or those who were stoned
Nine by morons or the unwise
One by a dumb sod, flushed down the throne

Check your wife's purse, she probably took it off last time she went to the bar

Probably used a Tolkien ring network to find them.

I doubt a metal detector would have prevented Gollum from falling into Mount Doom.

It's fairly weird that Elrond, Gandalf and Galadrial mostly played bit parts in most of the books, well not Gandalf, but until he used his 1up he was a chump.

I keep buying metal detectors, but people keep swiping them.

Metal detecting rocks. 1768 Spanish silver 2 reale as unearthed behind a 1700's tavern site. Just bigger than a quarter.

My brother lost his All American ring in a lake, it will not be found!  My other brother lost his sunglasses near shore in the same lake, he went back two weeks later with scuba gear and not only found his glasses, but also came up with a $20 bill!

I liked it as a kinda feel good story. Also, the linked story about engagement rings as virginity bonds was interesting (disclosure, I contract work for DeBeers sometimes).

If that is what you consider a cock ring, I feel sorry for your partners.

Sometimes some rings are meant not to be found.

Since wedding rings can cost upwards of $6,000 ....

Man, pricey. Like this one?

My wife and our bought our rings at a Kohl's department store, buy one the other was half off. By Grabthar's hammer, what a savings. When hers got too loose I bought another smaller one in the same style (14K plain gold band) off Amazon for $90.
