Woman Dreams About Swallowing Her Engagement Ring, Does So in Real Life

A California woman who dreamed about swallowing her engagement ring during an apparent robbery woke up to find that the said ring was missing from her finger in real life as well.

Last Tuesday night, Jenna Evans dreamed that she was on a high-speed train with her fiancé, when some “bad guys” appeared. In her dream, the fiancé told her that the only one way to make sure she didn’t lose the 2.4 carat diamond engagement ring she had waited so long for – swallow it. She quickly popped it in her mouth and washed it down with a sip of water. Then she woke up, relieved that it had only been a vivid dream. But then she looked at her left hand and noticed that her ring was gone in real life too…

“On Wednesday morning, I realized my ring was not on my hand and had to wake (my fiancé) up and tell him that I swallowed my engagement ring,” Evans wrote in a Facebook post. ” … We laughed pretty hard for about an hour and a half, called my mom, laughed until we were crying, googled ‘do other adults swallow rings’ because kids do it all the time, but apparently it’s less common for adults.”

After laughing it off with her family, the 29-year-old woman went to an urgent care clinic to see what could be done to recover the precious ring. Doctors there advised against allowing the diamond-encrusted ring to pass through her digestive system naturally, referring her to a gastroenterologist instead.


Jenna told NBC San Diego that she could definitely feel the ring in her guts and that it was starting to hurt, but luckily she underwent an upper endoscopy and the gastroenterologist was able to locate the engagement ring sitting in her intestines just beyond her stomach, and promptly retrieved it.

The incident didn’t come as a complete surprise to Jenna and her family, as she does have a history of sleepwalking and even folding laundry in her sleep. This was the first time she actually swallowed something while sleeping (that she knows of, anyway).


“I don’t have any fears that I will swallow it again. I hopefully will only achieve such greatness once,” Evans said, adding that she plans to see a sleep specialist about her issue, just to be sure.
