Lost ring in bathroom sink

Hey Guys,

I am new to this forum. I lost my rink in the bathroom sink so I am looking for some important information.

I lost a golden ring that my boyfriend had gifted while proposing to me 2 years ago. It got accidentally dropped down in the sink drain of my bathroom when I was bathing. For me, that ring was very special and I never wanted to lose it. I haven't informed this to my boyfriend yet as I know he will become sad and angry. He is now staying in his home and he cannot come here due to lockdown. I think it is still down in the drain so I have stopped the water flow to it. I want to get it back at any cost. I don't know what to do. I surfed the internet and found plumbing services. But If I didn't get a plumber as it is lockdown time... Then what can I do? Are there any other ways to get my ring back? Please share your suggestions and help me.

Thank you

Remove the trap underneath the sink. Hopefully it's in there.

If it is there it will be in the trap.
Remove the trap and empty it into a bucket.
They are usually fairly easy to remove though you may need a pair of channel lock pliers to unscrew the connections.
If it is not in the trap then check in the sink pipe if you have a pop up stopper as it may have got hung up there

Just Google "bathroom sink trap removal"

The lower joints on each side of the "P-trap" need to be unscrewed.

Get a pan under it because it will leak and be prepared for a good coating of crud, old soap, hair, and everything else that goes down the drain.

Under those joints there may be some plastic o-rings, depends on how the assembly is constructed. Just don't loose them as they seal the joint!

Would be a good time to clean all the crud out of there.
