So… I did something bad.
I was on my boyfriend’s computer and was in the history looking for a funny video we had watched the night before. AND THEN I SAW IT. A Moissaniteco.com “thank you for your business” in the history. I know I shouldn’t have, but I had had a couple of drinks, and I spied. HE ORDERED THE RING!!!!! ENG178b… I AM SO EXCITED. I am not telling any of my friends/family because I don’t want to ruin any surprise he may have, so I am sharing my excitment on here. I can’t imagine him waiting until the holidays to propose (he did 2 business day shipping… !!), and my birthday is in a few weeks (my whole family will be in town) and we are going on a trip with my family next month. We are both on the same page in that we want a private proposal, but we want to be able to celebrate with family afterwards. I am going to stay as calm and normal as possible, but Bees, I am so excited! 🙂
Who else was in a situation similar to this? You know he has the ring but are/were waiting for a proposal? How long did it take for him to propose? Was it still a surprise?

I am! He ordered the ring a month ago (he left the tracking number page up on my computer) and now he’s just sitting on it! It’s driving me nuts because he swung by my parents’ house to show everyone the ring. Bah!
We’re moving in two weeks and I think it’s going to be after that. But we went to a concert last weekend and there was a very fitting song that he could have proposed to. The entire day I thought my stomach was going to fall out of my butt, and he ended up not proposing, so you should still be surprised!

Oh that was totally me. I snooped and found out he ordered the ring. I found out while I was at work and freaked out! It actually delivered to him the day I discovered that he had purchased it. It was so hard because I would get so excited everytime we did something out of the norm because I thought he would be proposing. He really only held onto it for 2 weeks before proposing in the mountains! 🙂 Good luck! Don’t drive yourself crazy!!!!!

Gosh I think knowing like this would just about kill me…
I’d so want for the surprise… but I’d be soooo terrified that I’d let the secret that I know out of the bag, and thereby spoil everything
Would definitely need to invest in a big piece of duct tape for my mouth

I knew DH had my ring as well. I grabbed his check book for him and saw the check for the deposit 🙂 A couple weeks later we went on a trip and I kind of figured it would happen then. I still didn’t know when exactly though. There were a ton of moments where it seemed like the perfect setting but he still managed to surprise me!

I’m in a similar situation! We went to the jewelry store together for him to get an idea of what I liked. He went with his sister the next week and ordered it! I wanted different side stones, so it will be ready in a couple weeks! That’s all he’ll tell me! It’s driving me insane! We are going to Hawaii next month, so I think he will propose then?! Not sure if it will be ready by then though. I’m trying not to think about it too much!! Congrats on your boyfriend ordering your ring! I want to snoop so badly, but I am trying to control myself!

@Mick0304: My bf lives 9000 miles away from me, and i know he has ordered the ring. The only thing im worried about is it if will come before august 31st, before he leaves for his flight on the way here. Since then, i’ve been obsessing over this page. It’s really driving me insane!

I was with my SO when he bought my ring… The jeweler said it would be delivered in about 4 weeks… three weeks ago this coming Saturday. I’m getting SO excited! He wants to surprise me with the proposal!

In a similar situation right now! SO got the ring last weekend and he either has it or is hiding it at his parent’s house. And we have NOTHING coming up (no birthdays, anniversaries, etc.) so I am literally on edge waiting. It’s driving me CRAZY! It’s only been a week, but this kind of waiting is SO MUCH WORSE.
I also found out in a similar way – I snooped and listened to a voicemail that was from the jeweler. Good luck to you! Hoping both of our SO’s don’t wait too long 🙂

@Mick0304: My FI had ordered the ring in early december. He wasn’t supposed to tell me but immediatly after he did it he called me and said, “guess what I just did!” and you could just tell by his voice he was excited, like a little kid on Christmas. The day the ring came in was on New Years Eve, which he also called me to tell me but then he said he still had a couple grand to pay off on it and he just wanted to go in there every so often and pay it off little by little. He said it would be a few months before I would get it. Sure enough, New Years Eve night he changed our movies at home plans and told me to grab my snow gear and he took me ice fishing (Minnesota couple, what better things do you have to do in -40 weather?) and he ended up proposing that night on New Years Eve! The stinker got too excited when he saw the ring he had made that he paid off his remaining balance and took it right home. He had the box hidden in his snowmobile jacket so well I couldn’t tell at all! 🙂

We ordered mine this morning!! I am so excited but i’m not allowed to tell anyone because he still has to ask my Dad and he wants to “propose properly” when it arrives so i guess he’ll be sitting on it for a while too!
Our anniversary is in April but i’m really really hoping he won’t wait that long to ask me, it will kill me knowing my sparkly beauty is in the house somewhere!
