That is how long my ring is taking. My FI (proposed sans ring as well) and I will have had three meeting with the jeweler. The first for the “big picture” what do I want talk. The second to narrow the field of stones, metal and overall look/feel. And the third is in a month, where I will be shown several stones fitting my specifications as well as various artist renditions of how a ring would look with the different stones / settings. Then it will be about six weeks until the ring is on my hand – that is the beginning of September at the earliest. Well, in FI’s pocket, he jokes he may wait until I have “forgotten” before proposing again. Fat chance! It has taken more time than buying “off the rack”, but it has been so rewarding for us and we have really formed a great relationship with the jeweler.

Custom made rings take time, but balance that against the fact that your ring will be one of a kind, made specifically for you. It is really touching.

I give myself this talk when I decide I just don’t want to wait and want to run to a “chain” jeweler” and get something right now because my finger feels empty! So, this is all coming from experience!

Best of luck! LB

It took about 2 1/2 months for my ring to be designed/made, but the FI already had the stone and knew exactly what I wanted. Most of the 2 months was the actual crafting.
