Careful, first it's the ring she steals. Next, it'll be your boyfriend. Presuming, of course, she hasn't already done that and you just don't know it yet.
Maybe she saw it and didn't know you just got it and thought it was collecting dust so she took it, just ask first
The fact that she just got it is irrelevant. In fact an awful lot of particularly valuable jewelry is valuable because it's old. Whether or not it was "collecting dust" is also irrelevant. It's never okay to take something from a roommate without asking, even if it's not being used. Again, with jewelry, the most valuable pieces are probably worn the least frequently for a lot of people. (I know I'm so afraid of losing the nice things my mother passed on to me that I almost never wear them.)
You don't pick your room mates stuff up and wear it as your own just because your room mate doesn't wear it often. I have a very expensive ring that was passed down by my great-grand mother, I would lose my shit if my house mate wore that without asking. If it's not yours, don't take it.... How hard is that to comprehend?
OP, this may either be a case of stealing or a case of your roommate innocently thinking it was hers. Unless you told her you were looking for it, she may have thought the ring was hers and worn it by accident
