What a long road it’s been to even get to this point, but I’m happy to report that my custom engagement ring is ready (and actually fits my finger this time)! We took it home Saturday. It’s been 3-months off and on visiting the jeweler every week from start to finish with our crazy schedules and holidays becoming the occassional hindrance.
I’m psyched of course. The fact he has the ring makes it all the more likely that he’ll give it to me right? Ah, but he turns around and asks me “So, am I not supposed to do anything with this until we have my ring?”
Downer. Granted, it was my idea that we both wear engagement rings, but he’s totally slacking on the design for his and hasn’t made any progress at all. We could be at this another 11 months ladies 🙁

Keep your hopes up.. Have you sent him small suttle hints on ideas youd think he would like to get the ball rolling? Maybe he just needs a small push in the right direction!

Waiting is tough- but you’re well on your way to getting off the waiting board :o) I think it’s so sentimental and beautiful that you’re both doing e-rings too!

You could always just tell him you’ve had a change of heart about man-gagement rings and that you would rather just get him a really awesome wedding band. That way he would have a lot of time to design it, and you wouldn’t have to wait for your bling! 🙂

You Ladies are making me smile – this is why I love the Waiting board!
@TheRen I was just chatting with him over IM while at work and I dropped a not so subtle hint – in fact I think I actually started of with “You need to….” He seemed to take it in good stride though. 🙂

I cannot imagine the level of excitement you must be feeling! Good luck on expediting the man-gagement ring…

*hugs* get on him!! Haha – he’ll do it when the time’s right, as you know, and that will be the perfect moment for him (and probably you) … I keep telling myself this. But he realizes it’s agonizing to see the ring on the table, right?

.. that would absolutely, without a doubt, kill me dead. I wouldn’t be able to take it!
