I’ve locked down my location and my date – now just waiting for THE RING!!!
We are using a family stone (my great-grandmother’s) and after I got it taken out of the old setting and gave it to him to go get the IGI certification on it it has been KILLING ME to not have it and not know when I’m getting the ring.
We went ring shopping at this store I found in Brooklyn – The Clay Pot – which is really awesome. (I bought some cute, affordable earrings after looking at expensive diamond rings.) We found THE RING. It’s sort of art deco style, which I absolutely adore. So the artist is custom making the ring with my stone right now (at least, I think so) and I don’t know when I’m going to get it and he has something planned and won’t tell me anything and it’s PAINFUL.

Just be patient lol! I know its hard but if he wants to suprise you let him and you will enjoy it much more than knowing when you will get it. I felt the way you did too bc I knew it was coming bc I was advised by my sister to look at styles and get sized asap. (I did not want to shop with FH and wanted him to pick it out and he knew that) so I knew it be soon but never imagined my birthday one bc it was so close and then he said he would not do it on birthdays or holidays bc he wanted to make any simple day special! But he could not wait and did it a day earlier than planned and it was so special for us! Not the most romantic proposal for some but I wouldn’t have it any other way. So just try to let your mind rest and not think about it. It will happen when you are not expecting it and you will appreciate it so much more than knowing! Good luck!

Ugh, he keeps teasing me. SO CRUEL!
Yesterday he came home from work with this somber awful look on his face and I was freaking out cause I thought he got laid off or something and he goes "I lost the diamond on the subway" and I start SCREAMING and crying and then he just starts laughing his a** off at me.
I made him go get a nice bottle of wine to counteract the emotional trauma.

He is excited I can tell by the way he is teasing and he might be testing you too. Might trying to be catching you off gaurd when he notices you have not thought about it then slam! He hits you with the proposal! Good luck and keep laughing, thats all you can do!

We went to Mervis Diamond Importers (very interesting and slightly humbling experience!) and picked out what I HOPE HOPE will be the ring….of course it will take 4 weeks to get it because due to my teeny skeletor hands Tacori (Tacori!!!) has to make it for me.
Of course he insists that he’s not sure that’s the perfect ring for me and has to weigh his options. So who knowswhen I might get it.
Man it’s such a painful wait, I feel for ya!

UPDATE: ring to come in 2 weeks! I got him to tell me. Yeah, I know, but I hate surprises and I was just getting so anxious because I really wanted it before this wedding I’m in at the end of June, which he knew. He told me what his original plan was, which I don’t think would have gone over well. The wedding is in Ohio and we are driving out there, staying in a random roadside hotel that night, and finishing the drive the next day. So he was going to wait until we stopped for the night and I went into the bathroom and then be outside the door with the ring and a bottle of champagne. Now, while I would have liked that, I would probably have been fuming the whole ride about not having it AND then I would have to basically announce my engagement "officially" at my friend’s wedding, which I think would be a little tacky IMO.
So basically he told me when he is doing it but not how. I’ll give him THAT, but I’m not a girl who likes surprises (or waiting for things, for that matter) and he knows this and he basically told me to put my mind at ease because he knew I was freaking out about maybe not having it before this wedding.

I am in the EXACT same boat as you and we have the same wedding date for next year – YAY!
I am under the understanding that I will be getting the ring before Aug 22nd – So that makes 2 weeks for me too!!!
So we can go through this exciting/anxious time together!
