The Word: Savannah Guthrie threw her engagement ring in the trash

“Today” show co-anchor Savannah Guthrie recently lost her engagement ring — and found it when she picked through the trash.

Savannah, who got engaged to political consultant Mike Feldman in May, has been flashing a huge eye-catching ring ever since. Apparently it’s a little too huge — it didn’t actually fit at first. ”It was too big, so I was wearing a band-aid around it for like six weeks,” she told Jay Leno. “It bothered me so I would take it off all the time.”

After one of those absent-minded ring removals, Savannah couldn’t find the ring again, until a panicked search turned it up in her garbage can. I would judge her for her carelessness, but my whole family once spent Christmas afternoon picking through the guts of a disposal in search of an errant engagement ring, so Savannah, I feel you.

Savannah got engaged in May, she revealed on the show. Savannah was all smiles as she debuted a gorgeous engagement ring. Her coworkers rushed to congratulate her via Twitter, as Miss Manners demands. “Big news from Savannah!” Matt Lauer tweeted, along with a picture of a beaming Savannah sporting some serious bling.
