My FI proposed before he actually had the ring in his hands, he had ordered it but it was taking weeks and he ended up proposing first (which I was fine with). Yesterday we were talking about rings and I was going to the mall so he said I should check my finger size, which I did. Then we found out that they can’t size my ring to that small so they have to remount the diamond, which will take another 3-4 weeks. He called right away to get it started but it means I will be ringless for another month.
I’m strangely calm about this. Maybe it’s because I already waited forever or maybe because I’m still ridiculously happy with how things turned out! And maybe because I know which ring he bought and it’s BEAUTIFUL!

I’m glad you’re chill about it but I have to wonder why he didn’t bother getting your ring size at any point while you guys were talking about it (almost) daily for a year…

I got engaged 5 weeks ago and then we did the courthouse wedding over 2 weeks ago (May 7th) to get some logistical stuff out of the way before we have our big wedding in the fall. Due to sizing stuff and the jeweler taking longer than we were told, I’m still without my rings! I’ve actually yet to wear an e-ring or wedding band lol. They told us they’d be in today so we’ll see :p It’s kind of annoying, but what can you do? I figure I’ll be wearing them for the rest of my life so not having them for a few weeks is okay. He has his wedding band already since it didn’t need to be sized. The waiting has actually made me love my rings more and be even more excited to get them 🙂

@ErinC6: Exactly, when you know you’re wearing it forever you can wait a little while 🙂 I hope you get them soon though!
