Love's token lost
Solid objects like rings can be representations of the emotions and feelings inside our hearts. In a drama such embodiments of love are a very useful visual expression of positions on the romantic battlefield. They can also not only just be markers, but have a role of their own.

So we can have X giving Y a token of affection. Y, despite knowing they must hang onto it, loses said token. Or perhaps X tosses the token away, saying our affection is now lost. Y may then indulge in a desperate hunt for the token, perhaps involving water. Z may then make a copy of the token, further confusing matters.
