The wedding ring has gone missing -- eaten by an animal, dropped down the drain, accidentally sold in a garage sale -- and [[ASimplePlan convoluted machinations]] are needed for its safe return. A common complication is that the ring loser can never, ''ever'' tell their spouse it was lost, afraid that she/he will get mad at the fact/assumption that she/he took it off in the first place.

* Real life imitated sitcom plots when, in 2009, a man (Reed) proposed to his girlfriend (Kaitlin) by hiding the engagement ring in a Wendy's Slurpee (not quite as romantic as the champagne in the similar ''Series/TwoAndAHalfMen'' episode), which she wolfed down, swallowing the ring without even noticing anything particularly lumpy in her dessert. It took an X-ray showing the ring in her stomach to make her believe what happened. She retrieved the ring a couple of days later, and still married the guy.

* A cat in ''The BabySittersClub'' proved ultimately responsible for the disappearance of a valuable ring that Stacey was accused of stealing. * In ''[[RamonaQuimby Ramona Forever]]'' by Creator/BeverlyCleary, the wedding ring gets lost because it was stitched to the pillow it was carried on too tightly, and when the bride pulls it loose, it flies into the air and gets lost. Ramona eventually finds it on the heel of the bride's shoe.

* One episode of the [[KirbyOfTheStars Kirby anime]] did this. The person who lost the ring was Tiff's father. He got a new one every year, and he lost it every time (though it appears they're married). This time, Kirby accidentally tosses it out of a window, and various mishaps make it fall farther out of the main character's reach, until it gets swallowed by a fish...that Chef Kawasaki was preparing for their anniversary dinner. Kirby realizes its the same fish and retrieves the ring from it.
