My SO and I have been very open about ring searching, proposal timelines, (Dec. 2012), and all things wedding related. My parents had offered my SO a diamond ring that once belonged to my grandmother who passed away a few years ago. The diamond from the ring was going to be used in a new setting. On Thanksgiving, my future fiancée confessed that roughly a month earlier, the ring, appraisal, and envelope were all missing from a well-hidden spot in our home. At first, he thought it had slipped out, but after a few days of searching, it became obvious that it was gone. Since the ring was a family heirloom, he had a very difficult time confessing what had happened this to me. He said it felt like like he had failed me. To help lessen the blow, he decided to go out and buy a similar diamond to have placed in our setting. When he told me this, I was quite devastated.. Mainly, I am extremely upset with him for not telling me sooner. I am still grieving the loss of a family heirloom. The fact that he kept a secret of this gravity for nearly a month has weakened my trust in him. Additionally, it did not cross his mind that the ring might have been stolen, and now it seems nearly impossible that the ring could be retrieved from local pawn shops given the length of time since the disappearance. This news is extremely hard to bear, and now the impending proposal seems ill-timed. I know nobody is perfect, and his intentions were in a good place, but I’m not sure what to do or how to handle this.I I am hoping someone might be able to offer some helpful advice.
