If anyone lives in south Lake Tahoe ca, and happens to find a size 8 tungsten carbide ring in the bijou park on the southern edge of the golf course near hole 18(?) let me know. It's in the snow and you'll see where I've been digging for it lol.
Snowball fight w/ wife = missing ring.

That's one way of looking at it I guess ha. I've been digging for hours, bought a metal detector hoping I could find it but the snow was giving off false tones?? Nearly got frost bite in my fingers and knees it was a rough few days lol. Oh well luckily my ring is cheap because people don't like tungsten, so it's only like 300$ but I'm hoping I can strike a deal with the jewelers.

I was able to find a tungsten carbide ring for about $100 online. Not sure about in a size 8 though and it didn't have the lifetime resizings. It was my original wedding band though.

Since then I've moved onto a tattoo because I was taking it off 3-4 times a week when working out or working on house projects.

I lost mine 3 months after getting married. I was responsible for the turkey on thanksgiving and I swear--- while working with the stuffing and carving the turkey... somehow it slipped off. I have no idea where it went to this day but suspect it was left in the turkey carcass somehow even though I searched the garbage. My wife was 'rootin-tooin' mad but we were young and I had a new one by Christmas (though smaller and cheaper). I am still wearing it now; it basically never comes off.

My brother in law bought a beautiful band and then he lost it within a year. He was at the shore, the water was a bit cold and the ring just dropped off his finger into the briny depths. He replaced his with a steel one.

So no worries, it happens! Life goes on with or without a metal band.

I haven't worn my wedding ring in years. I never got used to the feel of it and when it got all bent (cheap ring) and cracked, I had it fixed and it just got all bent again, so I just took it off. I think it hangs in my wife's jewelry case on a chain.

I got more attention from the ladies when I wore it than I ever did after taking it off. What is up with you ladies who like to hit on the married men??
