Lost bracelet turning up - is this a bit woo?

DH bought me a white gold and diamond bracelet for Christmas a few years back when we lived in our old house. I lost it at home, I remember putting it away after a wedding but at a later date, just couldn't find it anywhere. I turned my old bedroom inside out looking for it. I emptied out every jewellery box and drawer looking for it. I swear I turned the house over looking for it, before I finally admitted to DH I'd lost it. He wasn't impressed, it cost almost £500.

The other day I was looking for a receipt and came across the receipt for that bracelet and so I left it out, thinking maybe I should claim it on house insurance in the new year as it was so expensive.

I've literally just opened my box that I keep all my jewellery in, and the bracelet was there inside its little box, laying on top.

I've been in that box a million times. How did it end up on top? Where did it appear from?????

I'm so freaked out right now! No one else would have found it and put it in there, and we've moved house since I lost it anyway.

So am I right in thinking this is a bit woo?? Can anyone offer an explanation????

Well that has happened to me twice with bracelets - the first one re-appeared on top of my dressing table 6 months after I lost it.

The second one took 2 years to be returned but popped up just before Christmas on top of the contents of a drawer I must have searched a dozen times and used fairly frequently.

I have no explanation for either event

It happened to me last month, I was staying in my friend's mobile home feeling rather sad as it was coming up to the third anniversary of my beautiful sister's death and I was missing her so much. I took her photo in a heart shaped frame with me and some tea lights. I lit one in the evening next to her photo and told her how much I was missing her and was rather tearful too. I was watching tv with a opened up sleeping bag on me like a quilt. At midnight I got up to go to bed and as I stood up I heard something drop to the floor. It was the bracelet my sister bought me 2 days before she died. I lost it 18 months ago and last saw it in the kitchen.
I can't understand it as it was closed when I found it, I never close my bracelets and it's too tight to fall of my wrist. Why would it be at my friend's caravan ? It couldn't have been in the sleeping bag as I had dragged that out of a wardrobe and it was already opened up . Why would it appear on the weekend of her anniversary when I was away from home. I did thank her for giving it back to me. It did give me a sense of comfort 💗

It was there and you didn't see it.
It got moved about in the house move.
Someone else put it there.
etc.

Love a woo thread.

Not quite the same but just after my dad died I was searching through photos for the funeral/wake and there was an envelope amongst these photos from my dad with £50 note in it. I have no idea how it got there or why it was there. It was like a hello from beyond the grave. I spent it on a charm for a bracelet.

What a lovely way to remember your dad Scrumptiousbears.

Happened someone I know with a ring. It had been lost for over a year and Onear day they went to get in the car and there it was by their feet in the gravel. Course it could have been there all along but still a lovely coincidence grin

When I was about 10 my grandad bought me a St Christopher on a necklace. I treasured it. I went on holiday a couple of years later (in a muddy field with parents caravan) and liked to swing on the field gate. That night I realised I'd lost my necklace. I was devastated. The next year we went back and I'm by the gate that was used a lot and just boggy mud, look down and there's my necklace just lying on top of all the mud.
