    Default WORST NIGHTMERE REALISED....

    Hello,
    I want to tell you a terrible story..... IT HAPPENED TODAY - Australian time SATURDAY 10:30.

    My wife was cleaning her jewellery in Bi-carb soda..... then she went to rinse the pieces.......

    AND her White Gold necklace with single solitare Diamonds - 0.71ct VVS2 Clarity, I Colour - slipped down the drain.....

    Luckily the drain was closed but the new plumbing involves plugs which rely on gravty to stop water leaking.... there is still some gap in the plug and drain......

    SHE SCREAMED IN HORROR..... I immediately started dismantling the sink....... I was very sick with the flue yesterday and I am feeling pretty bad today......

    Anyhow..... I start pulling the drain pipes (plastic) apart....

    I took the U bend pipe out..... and NOTHING.....

    I then snap off violently the pipe from the 1st drain to the U Bend..... AND - THANK YOU JESUS.....

    I got the pendant back......

    WHAT A HORROR STORY...... I am very greatful it was only a plumbing bill I will have to deal with......

    THIS IS THE PENNDANT IN QUESTION.....

    What a relief that you were able to get it! I had this happen to me with my promise ring. I too was cleaning it over the sink. Never again will I clean jewelry over the sink.

    I once dropped a Diamond Ring down the drain. We brushed our teeth and washed our faces at the bathtub for a week straight, and once we got my father to dismantle the drain, and nothing, it was gone. I was like 7 years old and an aunt gave it to me.
