I was in the same situation.  I had to have my ring resized twice and both times it took SIX WEEKS to get done.  It’s a Le Vian ring and apparently they are a relatively small mom and pop operation and that’s just their typical time lines…

I just dealt with it… honestly, I got used to NOT wearing it so that when I got it back, it felt weird!

I went to a friends wedding that time and thought “oh man, I’m not going to be able to show off my ring!” but it wasn’t about me and my ring, it was about my friend.  I also took pictures of it on my phone when we first got engaged so if anyone really cared, I could just show them pictures.  Really, I didn’t even think about it after a few days.

So really, I just dealt with it I guess…  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE my ring and I LOVE when even random people comment on how nice and unique it is.  I wouldn’t want to wear anything else in it’s place.

@Jacqui90:  I’m assuming you have a Tiffany ring if it’s going to NY? Speak with your SA and they should put a rush on it.

I know how you feel! My center stone fell out right after Christmas and because of the holidays, my schedule, the jeweler having his father-in-law die and being off for a week, and stuff, I had to go a little over a month before I could get it fixed! I was so sad the night it fell out and was actually crying, and so my then-fiance (now husband!) got my diamond wedding band out of wherever he’d been hiding it and put it on my finger. So I did wear something while I was waiting for it, but not really a placeholder.

I got engaged about 10 days ago and havent worn my ring since that very day.   Brought it in to be resized the next day.  They had to send it out to be done.   Went to pick it up today.   They chipped my center stone diamond at some point in the process.   Have to send it back out to remove the chipped stone.  Its been such a headache. 

I feel shallow over it… but it’s hard to be newly engaged without your ring!

I had to get mine resized and the jewler rocks cause I got mine back the same day. they do that in house. Of course, this was the second jewler I took it too because the one where the FI bought the ring we couldn’t get  ahold of. Oh I was so mad.  Anyway,I’m pleased with the results.

I have 3 beautiful bands I can wear when my ring is away. I stack them or wear one of them alone. It’s like multiple wedding bands 🙂
