Has anyone ever lost a piece of jewelry and then found it?

I once vacuumed up one of my diamond studs, but luckily my vacuum at the time needed a bag and I rarely remembered to change them!

Also, my fave necklace was missing for about two years. I thought that it vanished during a move! But it turned up at the bottom of an old handbag that I thought was empty!

Reading all these stories gave me anxiety - I'm happy for the ones who eventually found their jewelry again.

I've moved quite a bit so I've had some scares - usually because I end up putting something where it doesn't normally sit, like a different jewelry box, or my watch box or in a drawer when I'm cleaning up in a hurry.

I check old purses constantly for this very reason!

Once when we moved, we lost my husband's diamond Mont Blanc pen and by "we" I mean "I". I swear I checked all my purses multiple times but then 6 months into the new house I check one of my purse's for the 7th time and discovered it in one of the zippers. Sometimes I think things hang out in another dimension for a period of time before showing back up where you left them. :rolleyes: I know I checked that purse several times because it's the one I had when we signed the closing documents.

Lucky, this has happened to me so many times, too! It's so crazy! Glad I am not alone. For this reason, I have looked in the same places a bazillion times, emptying everything out hoping for success =)2

I'm sure you even systematically check every pocket multiple times when you search each bag/area and still miss things because I know I do.

I make my husband look too because he always seems to "see" it when I must have overlooked it a bunch of times.

I am doing a major happy dance tonight as I found one of my diamond bracelets! I noticed it was missing earlier this year (pre-pandemic) when I decided to wear it and it wasn't where it should be. I searched up and down - multiple times. I couldn't remember when I last wore it but couldn't imagine it falling off because it has a safety catch and chain. I tried to tell myself that it's not the end of the world and I do have other bracelets but this one had sentimental value as my husband gave it to me after my daughter was born over 30 years ago.

Well, tonight I was going through a box of old photos and guess what I found! I must've taken it off and it fell into the box. OMG. I am so relieved. So don't give up @siamese3!!

Here's a quick pic I took before putting it back in the jewelry box.

Unfortunately not! I have lost a 1 ct. heart pendant inclusive necklace and soon after one of my diamond studs, 0.7 ct. I was devastated, and I have never found them. I’m still thinking, what to do with the other 0.7 ct. stud.

I found an earring outside hanging on a bush 6 months after I lost it. The sun was hitting it the right way as I was walking for it to catch my eye. I knew I lost it at home but had no clue where.

I found a magnetic clasp stuck to another necklace yesterday. I searched the area and my jewelry box several times a few months back when I lost it only to miss it every time!

Don’t give up hope! Sometimes things have a way of making themselves seen.

You could put the .7 stud into a replacement necklace. Guaranteed way for the other stud and necklace to show up!:lol-2:
