I have posted on here a few times about the ring that I am having made (similar to the one below, only smaller and with no diamonds on the band):
Well, I picked out the morganite center stone (I wanted a really pale pink, so I had to order a few to get the right color) and sent it to the jewelers on tuesday!
I am so excited! But now I have to wait… Have any of you had a custom ring made before? How long did it take? I am hoping that since it is a pretty simple ring, it won’t be toooo long…

@slcall: my ring is custom… it took about 2 or 2.5 weeks to come in from MYC. It’s a pain to wait, but do try and savor the last “unengaged” days of your life!

@slcall: Gorgeous! My custom ring took 3 weeks. The jewelers said two, I probably started calling them to ‘check up’ by day 3, then since it was the holidays it was delayed an extra week, and boy did that week drive me insane. I think that was the week I lived, breathed, slept this site, lol. ugh. Hope yours doesn’t take too long. Anyway, wonderful job!

I got it from gemselect.com. They were awesome: I bought several morganites (and a pink spinel) at once, and returned all of the others for a full refund. At first I thought I wanted a darker pink, but I loved this color in person 🙂

LOVE the pale pink idea! Be sure to show us the final product when it comes in!

Lucky you only have a few weeks to wait, mine took 3 months! It was torture. Although any wait is torturous really.

@Mrs-Mac: 3 months!?! Oh gosh… My mom just had her 25th anniversary ring custom made, and the jeweler she went through had her entire set for 8 months! Granted, it was a pretty intricate design that she drew herself, and they remade it three times until it was perfect lol
This is actually my second ring (a little of a long story, in my previous posts), so at least I have my original ring while this is being made.
