I was cooking last week and put my ring in my back pocket so it wouldn't slip off in the food/down the drain. As soon as I cut into the onion I was using, I found it was rotten. I grabbed my keys, phone and wallet and ran out to the supermarket, extremely annoyed. I came home, cooked and cleaned up for a total of about 1.5 hours, and when I went to put the ring back on, GONE. I freaked out, turned my house upside down, and ran to the store. I remembered I put my phone in my back pocket (like and IDIOT) and I must have taken it out while I was in the store/parking lot, taking the ring with it.
My fiance is being much nicer to me than he should, but he's still really upset and hurt that I "thought so little of the ring he picked out for me that I would just shove it in my back pocket as if it were worth nothing." Ouch. My insurance will most likely cover the majority of it because even though it was lost and not technically stolen, it was still removed from private property and therefore, me and the store both have a claim to ownership over whoever found it and didn't turn it in. I filed a police report and my insurance agent thinks I'll get enough to cover something very similar, but my fiance is mad that I even suggested getting a new ring. He thinks that if it's not the one he propsed with then what's the point?
I actually agree with him, but it doesn't change the fact that I want to be able to show people my ring because we just got engaged a WEEK before I lost it. Ugh. I hate even talking about it. Anyway, what do you all think? Should I convince him to let me replace the ring or should I just drop it? I don't even mind getting the same setting and having it fitted with a CZ, which would total around $1,000 instead of the $5k he spent, I just hate not having a ring on my finger when I tell people we got engaged. Thanks guys.
