How To Not Lose Your Wedding Ring and What To Do When You Lose Them

Wedding Bands

The thought of losing your wedding band is daunting. Most common ways people lost theirs are when they:

  • went on a trip and misplaced their rings at the lodgings,
  • changed into their sports attire and placed their rings in their pocket only to find them missing after some time,
  • stopped wearing the rings when they care for their children but before they realised they have misplaced their rings.

Here are some points to remember to prevent losing your wedding ring:

今回は、そんな結婚指輪をなくさない工夫となくしてしまった場合の対処法をお伝えします。

Set a Specific Spot To Put Your Ring at Home

Some people wear their rings almost perpetually, even to bed or to shower but most of us take them off. When not wearing your ring at home, decide on a spot to put or keep your ring to avoid misplacing it. You may consider using a jewelry dish or a ring holder.

またお風呂に入る時は外すという方もいらっしゃるのではないかと思います。

自宅の中で指輪を外す、つける、場所とタイミングは、大体一緒だと思いますので、必ず決まった場所に置くようにしましょう!

Set a Specific Spot To Keep Your Ring when Out and About

Most people lose their rings when they are out and about. When one has no choice but to remove their ring outdoor, safely put them away in wallets or coin pouches. On the contrary, if one were to leave their ring in jeans or coat pockets, they may lose the ring when putting on or taking off their apparel.

逆にジーンズやコートのポケットなど、着ている洋服に入れてしまうと、どの服に入れて置いたか分からなくなったり、脱ぎ着する時に知らずに落としてしまったり、クリーニングに出してしまったりするので避けたいです。

Be Extra Careful when at a Hotel, Onsen, and during Sports Activities

We may be obligated to remove our rings for various reasons when going on a holiday, going to onsen or doing sports activities. On these occasions, cultivate a habit to store your ring safely in wallets or coin pouches. In the event where you are required to remove your ring urgently, place it somewhere noticeable to you and easy for you to remember.

いつも行くところであれば、出来る限り上記の財布や鞄など同じ場所に。

どうしても、急におかなければ鳴らない場合は、自分がすぐに気がつく場所に置きましょう。

In the event where you lose your rings, as long as you let us know the content of your engraving, we will be able to retrieve the data of your rings.

Wear Your Ring Every Day!

Wearing your rings every day is the best way to know you still have them. When wearing your wedding band becomes a habit, you will easily notice if it is misplaced or missing. That way, you won't have to wonder if you have misplaced them somewhere.
どこかお出かけのときだけ、食事に行くときだけ、人に合うときだけ、、とだんだん結婚指輪を身に着けなくなってしまうと、いつの間にか家中どこを探しても見つからない!ということも。
毎日身に着けていることで、指輪をつけていないことの違和感から、もし置き忘れてしまってもすぐに気が付きやすいです。逆にたまにしか身に着けていない指輪ほど、外出先で置き忘れたり、身につけていることが気になって無意識に外してしまったり。。

Wear Your Ring Only when the Size Fits

Finally, ensure that your ring size still fits. Many lose their rings because they put them on even when it doesn't fit perfectly anymore. At MITUBACI, we help our customers to ensure that the size of their rings are right.
サイズが緩かったり、きつかったりすると、どうしてもつけ心地が悪く、リングを外しがちだったり、身に付けなくなってしまったり、なくす大きな原因の一つになってしまいます。
MITUBACIで手作りした結婚指輪であれば、指のサイズを確かめながら制作出来るので、必ずピッタリのサイズにお作りできます。

On the other hand, if you were to lose your wedding ring, here are some things you can do:

Search Everywhere Thoroughly

あれっ!?結婚指輪がない!!

More often than not, our heart skips a beat, and we feel the chill in our bones when we realized we might have lost something important. When this happens, calm down and try to recap the last time we saw our ring and retrace our steps to narrow the scope of the search.

そんな時は、まず落ち着いて、一番最後に身に着けていた記憶があるところまで、じっくり焦らず記憶を辿りましょう。ここまでは身に着けていた、という時間と場所がわかれば、捜索範囲が狭まります。

If your ring is completed at MITUBACI, and you cannot find it nor recall where you lost it, please contact us immediately. Providing us with the characteristics of your wedding ring, such as the engraving details, allow us to retrieve the data of your ring.

There is also the possibility that you have misplaced your ring in bags which are not used frequently, in coats or trousers, especially those stored away with the change of seasons. You may also want to visit police stations to check if your ring is in the lost-and-found items.

そして、ある程度場所と時間がわかっているけど、どうしても見つかれない場合は、念のため付近の警察に遺失物を問い合わせてみましょう。もしかしたら、誰かが拾って届けてくれているかもしれません。

Tell Your Partner

How do you tell your partner that you lost your wedding ring? This is probably one of the hardest things to do. We have had customers who did not want their partner to find out and approached us in secret.

私もなくしかけた経験があるので、その気持ちは痛いほどわかります。

そして、実際にMITUBACIにも、指輪をなくしてしまったのですが、、とパートナーに内緒で相談にいらっしゃるお客様もいらっしゃいます。

However, it is still best to tell your partner as soon as you realized that you have lost the ring. Perhaps, your partner may know where you have misplaced it. Also, it is easier to let your partner know when the chances of finding it are still high.
なくしてしまったことは、本当に残念ですが、それがより二人にとってマイナスな思い出とならないように、まずはパートナーに伝える、出来ればなくしたと思ったらすぐに。まだ見つかるかも、というタイミングのほうが逆に伝えやすいかもしれません。

Speak To Your Jeweler

If you cannot find your wedding ring no matter how hard you looked, contact your jeweler to get a replacement. Warranties may differ across brands, but for most, you may be able to get a discounted price for a ring remake. This time, ensure that your ring size fits comfortably (a misfit is a common reason why people lose their ring!) Let your jeweler know if you wish for your new ring to match your partner's ring's worn look.

ブランドによって対応は異なると思いますが、再購入の場合の割引があったりするかもしれません。購入したときに保証書などがついていたら、まずその内容を確認してみるとよいと思います。

あとは、折角なので、もしなくした指輪がゆるかったりきつかったりした場合は、ちょうどのサイズで作り直しましょう。(前半でも書きましたが、ゆるかったりきつかったりすることが、指輪をなくす一つの大きな原因!)

そして、新しく作った指輪に比べてパートナーの指輪の使用感が気になる場合は、併せて仕上げ直しも頼みましょう。

Consider Made-to-Order Bespoke Jewelry

If your original jeweler no longer produces the same design or it is no longer around, consider another jeweler with made-to-order jewelry services to recreate the wedding ring. If your partner's ring has the same design, show the jeweler to get the replacement as close to the original design as possible.

そんな時は、パートナーの指輪をお手本にして、オーダーメイド専門のお店で、なるべく同じように再現して作ってもらうという手もあります。

Make a New Pair of Ring with Your Partner

Take this chance to commemorate your anniversary and make a brand new pair together with your partner! We have had couples who attended our workshop with their children too!

MITUBACIでお作りいただく結婚指輪には、皆さんになるべくオリジナルの刻印をお入れいただいていますので、置き忘れたときや、警察に届けられた時など、特徴を伝えやすくて安心です。

Besides, we keep records of every ring made with us, so please inform us if you have lost yours. Replacement rings made with us also get 15% off its original price.

また、指輪をなくされしまったことをきっかけにして、もしくはもう何年も前に旦那さんが指輪をなくしてしまってとか、仲良く二人でなくしてしまって、というお二人が、新しい指輪を今度は二人で手作りしよう!とMITUBACIにいらっしゃるご夫婦もとても多いです。

お子さんたちと一緒に家族みんなで指輪を作りに行くのもいいですね!
