Lost Your Ring? The Garden Should be The First Place to Check
Here at William May, we surveyed 1000 people who had previously (or almost) lost a ring to discover the most common places people had misplaced them. What has our research revealed?
According to the findings, gardening was found to be the common known place for Brits to lose their ring (14.4%), closely followed by seaside trips to the beach.
A breakdown of the top locations can be found below:
- Gardening (14.4%)
- At the beach / in the sea (13.1%)
- On holiday (12.4%)
- Cleaning (11.5%)
- At work (8.2%)
- Other – scenarios included in a taxi, while out shopping, and in hospital (6.3%)
- In a public restroom (5.5%)
- In the car (4.9%)
- Down a drain (4.4%)
- Cooking (2.7%)
The findings also showed that men are more likely to lose their ring gardening when compared to women, and that Sheffield, Newcastle and Edinburgh were the top 3 locations most likely to misplace their jewellery in the garden.
With the garden a popular place for people to lose their rings, we have created a fun but challenging brain teaser! This “puzzle” features a busy garden scene, including carrots, a wheelbarrow, flowers, various insects, fences, a shovel, and multiple rabbits, making the ring even trickier to spot. Can you find it?
Here at William May, it took us on average 93 seconds. How long will it take you?
Can’t see it? Here’s a hint: A Canadian woman famously lost her ring in her garden. 13 years later, the ring was spotted around a carrot that had grown large!
Still can’t find it? Nevermind, here is the revealed version
