Um, he bought it when we shopped together on Valentines day, and then held it until April 25th.. so a tad over 2 mths.

Less than 24 hours. He bought it at lunch and proposed during dinner.

1 week. He carried it in his pocket wherever he went, including to work every day.

About four months. He was given it in August and proposed in December.

Less than 3 hours.  He was going to wait until Christmas to propose, but when he got the ring on the 20th, he couldn’t wait.  According to our jewelor, he cried when he picked it up!  Lol.  I made it home from work, and he proposed right then.

Just a few days.  He took advantage of me being out of the country for a week (visiting a friend in Japan!) to go buy the ring and talk to my parents.  I was gone for 8 days and he proposed 3 days after I got back.  So yeah, probably right around a week.

I think about a day?  He definitely got it the week he proposed.  And, we weren’t seeing each other at all that week, so he basically proposed the minute he saw me!  We are terrible at keeping anything a secret.

I think he had the ring (but kept it at his Jeweler) for about two months before he popped the question.

I think it was three days. He had to have it rush ordered (we had to change the date of our trip), so it came in a couple days before we left. He told me he was working late, picked it up, & locked it in his tool box in the garage for the next two days! He proposed the day after we left for our trip.

I think he had it two or three months. I knew where he kept it and it was sooo hard not to go sneak a peak.
