  1. Glad you found it! I too have an heirloom engagement ring (my husband’s mother’s) with a special princess cut, that I haven’t been able to wear in 13 years since I got pregnant – it needs to be resized and the diamond is loose. Will be several hundred dollars, but since I’m wearing my grandma’s engagement ring, along with my original wedding band, I never wanted to spend the money. Every year I say I will do it, and then I don’t. One day! Soon! I promise! My husband doesn’t care, but I do want to get it done eventually.

    1. You were smart to put it away when it has a loose diamond. Not being able to fit it on your finger while pregnant will ensure the diamond’s still there when you’re ready to have the ring sized and repaired.

  2. My husband passed away on June 29. We have 4 children and were married almost 27 years. I looked down at my beautiful engagement ring last Wednesday morning and found the diamond missing. My sweetheart had chosen that stone just for me in early 1990. I haven’t lost hope, but it makes me cry every time I think about it.

    1. I am so sorry to hear that, Laura, and am praying right now that your diamond will resurface soon! I know the loss of your husband is still fresh, as well, and am praying God will comfort you and give you peace as you continue to process your grief.

  3. Your post was excellent! I read it out loud to my mother-in-law and greatly appreciated the conversation it inspired. We are both so happy your diamond is safely back in your procession.

  4. This gives me hope! I am so, so glad you found that diamond! Now, if I can find my son’s precious blanket that was custom made by a family friend and we brought him home from the hospital in and was almost attached to him for four straight years

  5. Dear Jennifer,  

    I loved your encouraging post today!  I’m praising God for your success at finding your lost treasure.  I couldn’t wait to get to the end of the post.  What an amazing, loving, merciful Father that we have the privilege to serve.  Thank you for the reminder of the real treasures that we get to care for daily.  Um and I’m going to get back to my cleaning routines.

  7. Jennifer,
    I cannot tell you how much this encourages me. I have been so very blessed to know you and become fond of your constant encouragement and iron sharpening skills! ????. I have often thought about you and your lost diamond. I prayed and prayed that God will allow that diamond to show up in His perfect timing. It looks like His timing proved to be perfect and have a gift to each of you (and to us praying). Thank you for being so transparent and thank you for allowing us to learn through the diamond! What a GEM!!!!!
