I love the title of your post. You sound so much like I did two months ago :-). The worst feeling in the world is finding the perfect ring and then having to put it back in its box. I used to sneak it out of FI’s hiding spot and try it on whever I would go over to his apartment. That made the waiting a tiny bit easier. Hopefully your bf is bad at hiding things like my FI is. πŸ™‚

You know what’s funny? When I was posting on here during our MONTHS and MONTHS of designing, re-designing, fixing, re-fixing, etc. my ring, I never anticipated how much *more* painful it would get the day that happened to me: it was finally perfect, and then I had to take it off, put it back in the box, give it to the BF so he could go buy it, then go home and not tell anyone. SO PAINFUL!! The waiting got exponentially harder after that day. Between then and the 6 (!?!!?) days later when he proposed were literally the longest 6 days EVER. But I can tell you: it’s all just a complete blur now.. like what they say about childbirth. You just forget all about the pain the second that baby is yours πŸ˜€

Man trying on that ring must have been torture! I picked out the stone and the setting with FI as well, but I never saw it complete and on my finger until last Saturday night, when he proposed with it. πŸ™‚

OMG, I would die. Actually, I’d be asking him every 10 minutes, “Can we just go back and get it now? Please? Pleeeeeease?” These men and their need for a fancy proposal. Don’t they know that I won’t be any more giddy if you ask in a big, fancy, much anticipated ‘surprise’ than I will be if you ask me right now in the back room of a jewelry store? Silly men.

Also, I can totally commiserate. I haven’t had her on my finger yet, but I know she’s been ordered and it’s KILLING ME. It’s been 19 days since he bought her and it’s supposed to take 14 to 21 days to create it, then over night shipping. I told him, If she’s not on my finger by Oct. 29, I’m throwing a fit. I know it’s not him, he could never sit on a ring for more than about 5 seconds! But oh man, waiting for them to make/ship it! Garh!!!!!!!

ohhh I am totally not a patient person so I feel your pain! It would be killing me knowing it is so close!

I guess the only thing will be that immense relief and happiness when it finally happens and this torture will all be a thing of the past!

Hopefully the boy does it sooner rather than later

I feel exactly the same way! My bf and I had my engagement ring designed to match a wedding band I inherited from my great-grandmother. We picked the diamond and saw the wax mold 2 weeks ago, but that’s as much information as I’m allowed to have. We gave the jeweler strict instructions to call my bf when the ring is finished. The waiting is making me crazy jumpy. Everytime my bf sneezes I’m afraid he’s about to propose!

Sweetie, I know it’s super hard to wait. When he FINALLY does it, it will be perfect and you will be glad you waited patiently. πŸ™‚

SO CLOSE!!!   I don’t know how you managed to walk away after having your finished beauty on your finger.  You’re a strong, strong woman.

Eeee… I am so excited for you!! Good luck staying patient… When I knew my FI had the ring I could hardly contain myself (and he only held onto it for 6 days!) I have my fingers crossed for a bday proposal!

We got my ring mid-August and the first two weeks after getting it were the worst!  I would sneak and try it on (it was left out because I needed to bring it to be appraised), but since he hid it, it really hasn’t bothered me much, since its been out of sight and I know I will get it pretty soon.  It does make me more suspicious any time he is super nice, or we are out and having a good time…  I think ‘could this be it??’

It was very hard not to say anything, and I may have let the cat out of the bag to a few people πŸ™‚  Ooops…..

@Ambellina13:OMG, you’ve had it in the house since August and he hasn’t given it to you yet? He’d be dead meat in my house!
