About 15 years ago, a group of us were caving. One guy's wedding band slipped off and rolled down about a steep passage into a stream. We never did find that ring.

Class ring missing for more than 20 years found in cave off the coast of Africa


My precious j/k

Wow that is amazing! It can be a very small world sometimes. I found out recently that my "real" dad's wife whom he met in germany is from the town I grew up in and we went to the same high school (NCHS). She was in the same class as Dick Cheney.

That's not one of those rings that makes the wearer disappear, is it?

I understand those get lost in caves all the time.

There may be an epic journey involved!

Speaking of losing jewelry, just imagine the pain you would go through losing your Prince Albert.

These kinds of stories are the reason why my wife doesn't let me have anything nice.

Ever since I ran over my platinum wedding ring with my truck, she has had me wear a $3 sterling silver ring.
