Happened to me twice with my wedding ring. First time it slipped off in my
purse. Second time was much harder to find. Eventually found it in a small
soft sided cooler bag that I carry drinks in.

I no longer wear the wedding ring. I just buy a cheap, wedding looking ring
and replace it when it starts looking bad. I figure I'm still losing weight
so no need to buy something expensive until I'm down to the size I want.
