My bf now FI proposed to me on Valentine day!! That was AWESOME!!! I am so happy he did, there is no other man in this world I would rather spend the rest of my life with.
So as I said before on the last post he did not had a ring when he proposed… he told me to pick it whatever I wanted. It took me a week but I found the the ring of my dreams I showed it to him and he said ok I will go get that one…
But it is just taking soooooo long for that ring to get in my finger…. The guy that is going to do the ring traveled to asia yesterday and I still do not know when he is back. All the time we have a plan to go se the guy something happen!!
We are waiting untill the ring is in my finger so we can tell the family, so it is official. It is just hard I wanna SCREAM to the world that I AM ENGAGED TO THE MAN OF MY DREAMS!!!
I dont know what to call him BF (cuz the ring is not on my finger) or FI (cuz he proposed)!
I do know it is not his fault, I told him I wanted a 2 carat ring with 10 side stones and all he said was “whatever you want”!! He is a sweet heart and always does everything to make me happy. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THAT MAN!!!
I am jut a lil frustrated I want to were the ring and fell like the fiance!!! make wedding plans dresses, venue honey moons, kids etc… I fell like a 2 year old throwing tantrums… with the “I want it and I want it now”.
I am being stuped? selfish? childish?
your opinions will really help….
thanks for the suport!

Are you having the ring custom made?
Did your FI already pay the guy? Because it sounds like he may have taken the money and run.

I agree that it sucks waiting for the ring! We had to get it resized and it was gone for a week! Luckily I had my promise ring to take it’s place.
You don’t need a ring to tell people you are engaged though!

*hugs* I’m sorry for how that’s going. The jeweler who helped my bf was a complete ditz. 5 times she said she’d call him back (for 5 different reasons), and she never did, he had to call almost every day to get the price quote. Then he was supposed to go meet her to get the ring approved and he went to the jeweler shop 6 times! Which btw, is 2 hours away from us, so its not an easy ‘stop by the shop on my way home’ deal. Twice she wasn’t there, and all the other times were ‘I’m sorry, I’ll get right on that, I forgot!’ It finally worked out, and now he has the ring, and I’m waiting for him to propose. It’s driving me nuts too, lol. I hope your jeweler gets back from asia soon!

We still did not even had a chance to meet with the guy we keep emailing each other.

if he hasn’t even started the ring yet, you should be aware that a custom ring can take about 3 months to make…
it’s only been 10 days so just wanted to let you know you’ll be in for the long haul.

Valentines? Then thats just 10 days. Relax girl! lol
But I kind of know how you feel, my FI proposed to me with a wedding band, not the one he had hoped to give me, he knows how I picky I am and said he’d like me to help him pick out the Engagement ring.
I didnt anounce our engagement till I got the “offical” ring he wanted to get me.
So it was like 2 months of being quiet!
Im using the first ring he gave me as my wedding ring when we get married.

Oh I understand – I was proposed to in October and do not have my ring but am pretty sure it will be mine within the month. I sometimes get very jealous of the girls with the amazing proposals and the surprise rings, but I understand why we did things the way we did and my fiance (the stinker lol) showed my daughter which ring he was proposing with and it is my favorite so I am glad I am being patient and waiting.
I keep telling myself I will have the rest of my life to show it off and agreeing to marry the guy without the ring inducement has to say something lol
So it is ok to be frustrated and vent because you want it – we understand
I am going to post pictures of my soon to come sparkler -do you have pictures of yours?

@girlnyc: I might choose another jewelry designer if you can’t get in touch with him. Maybe go into a local jewelry shop and actually talk to them.
Are you in NYC, there’s a great little jewelry shop in the East Village that does custom jewelry.

I still have my stunt double and I’m married. It’s a little hard sometimes, but I love my $30 ring and am glad we used the money for the wedding. Plus, it makes a good story. Maybe try looking at it from another angle.

Dude, chill out! It’s been 10 days! I know how excited you are for the ring, but try to be a little patient. There’s a good reason that you don’t have the ring yet, and that is that it is being custom made. Because your fiance wanted to give you exactly what you want. Because he loves you. Just try to focus on the positives~ you’re engaged, and have a great guy that cares about you!
I am being stuped? selfish? childish?
Not stupid, but a little bit selfish – you seem more obsessed with the ring than your wonderful man, and a little bit childish to think that a custom made ring could be made in 10 days, even without the jeweler traveling to Asia.

@babybumblebee: Hello bee! I am not more obseced with the ring than with my man… He gave me the oportunity to chose my ring and whatever one I want… LOVE IT!!! I know I am a very lucky woman to have the man I have. He is absolutely amazing, I love him from head to toe.
And as I also said i want the ring cuz I cant wait to start making other plans with him… I am just VERY exited to every step on this new journey with him.
And I dont think I am childish for thinking the ring could be made in 10 days…. How can I know how long it takes for a ring to be made?
As I said in the title it was a vent…. i just cant wait for the next step after the ring… I want to have engagent party … showers and all that good stuffs… stay up late and make plans with him…choose a dress… guest list….
I know I have to chill and relax all will hapens in its time the most important thing is I AM ENGAGED TO THE MAN I LOVEEEEEEEE!

This guy doing our rings is a diamond wholeseler so will be much cheaper than a diamond store. Hope he comes back soon so we can get it going
