I can't seem to find my highschool graduation ring. It kind of bothers me, because it's not with any of my other jewelry. I may not be the neatest person around, but I do try to take good care of my things, so it's kind of strange that somthing like a nice ring wouldn't be with my other stuff.

I can't remember what I used to put my jewelry in back in highschool. Sometime after I moved out, mom gave me her old jewelry box, and I remember putting everything in there, and using that. I looked through it a few months ago, and noticed "huh.. my high school ring isn't here. It's probably in another box somewhere... oh well," and didn't think anything of it. I double-checked today, and took out the little shelf and drawer, and it's not in there anywhere.

It's not like I'm about to start wearing it again or anything, really, but it bothers me that I can't find it. Ever since I was little, I loved looking at my mom's graduation ring. (Except I think hers was for college), so when I was finally able to get my own, I was so excited. I wore it every day until one valentine's day, when Matt gave me that emerald ring. Then, I put on the emerald ring, and put the high school ring away. I thought I'd tracked down the emerald ring's box, and there's nothing in there. Currently, I'm wearing my college graduation ring.

When Matt bought me the emerald ring, it didn't fit quite right. It was a little tight, and I wore it like that for a while, until I had gained too much weight. Then, we had it resized bigger, and it fit fine for a few years. Recently, the weight I've lost has made the right way too loose, and I was worried about losing it, so I put it away and took out my college ring again.

I was a little curious to see how my highschool ring would fit... and it's pretty so I like to look at it once and a while. it really kind of bothers me that I can't find it, though.
I have way too many jewelry boxes right now. I've received many as gifts through the years, to the point where I don't even use some of them now. I feel kind of bad, but I don't know what to do with them all. I had a little Badz Maru tin that I used in college that I don't really use now anymore.

The one that means the most to me is the one that Mom gave me. It was one I think she used when she was about my age, and has a little music box in the bottom drawer. My newest one is also from my mom. It has a music box, and a place to put a photo in the top, but I'm not really sure what to put in it right now.
I have a small wooden one with a carved cork top that I don't really use anymore that Matt gave me when we first started dating, as well as that little metal tin badz maru one...

Too many boxes, and none of them have my highschool ring in them!

I think my next course of action will be to tear apart the one or two remaining boxes from college, and see if there are any jewelry store boxes in there. My ring may be in one of those. If not, I'll have to wait until Matt leaves for work tonight so I can tear apart and clean the bathroom.

I have a sinking feeling this is one of those rare cases of "It's missing, it's going to bother me for weeks, I'll tear the house apart looking for it, and I'll never find it"

Blaaaahhh. The sad thing is, if I do find it, I'm just going to jam it on my finger, and then put it in a jewelry box. But it bothers the shit out of me that I don't know where it is.

Edit: Forgot to mention. In my quest to find this thing, I found two missing hair pins.. cheapies, but I couldn't find their partners. I also found a very large handful of Pokemon temporary tatoos. WOOT!

I know exactly how those searches go. I need to get my jewelry box from my moms and find all my pretties. I think my high school ring got stolen in the great house break in of 2 years ago... which sucks.

Well, I'm sure it's no consolation whatsoever, but I can totally give you some temp. pokemon tattoos to make up for your loss :P

BTW. I am telling you now D: You have a year in advance! Make travel plans for the weekend of Jul 9th! I WILL have a kickass 30th birthday party, even if we have to go crash some high school kid's party

jewlery box
Dad made you a jewelry box. Do you still have it? It was small, made of wood and had a gold clasp. Your ring might be in there.

Re: jewlery box
I do still have it. It's empty, though. One of the back hinges is broken, so I emptied it out years ago. I need to get to a hardware store and find some more of the little hinges and nails he used, and I can fix it up. It's been in a closet for ages, though, because I keep forgetting to do it
