So the SO and I went to our jeweller again last night because she said she thought she found the perfect champagne sapphire, and she was right! It was amazing, I loved it right away! So after I gave my confirmation that that was indeed the stone that I wanted to go with, I was kicked out of the store and sent to a coffee place to wait while the SO and the jeweller got things going, lol. So I know he put a deposit down for the custom ring and I know it should take 3-6 weeks to make it. So I know about when he will have the ring (just before X-mas), so I just have to wait. The SO said that I shouldn’t expect a proposal soon becuase he wanted to wait for “warmer” weather (we are in Toronto, Canada). Now, I don’t know if this was his way of throwing me off about when he would proposal or not because warmer weather for us will not be until sometime in May or June, which seems soooo far away. Maybe he has something planned for the proposal that needs to be outside…
So my question is, how long did you wait for the proposal after you knew he had the ring?
And, do you think he was trying to throw me off by saying that I will have to wait for maybe 6 months???

It was less than a week for me!!!

It was less than a week for me too. We had looked at some and discussed and I knew he ordered the ring and it arrived on the Wenesday. He proposed on the Friday.

If it goes as he’s been saying, it’ll be one day. It’ll arrive tomorrow, he’s planning on Saturday for the proposal. Can’t wait to find out exactly how he does it. 🙂

Three days for me (although I didn’t know at the time, but I found out later).

@LuckyinLove17: I’m not sure why he wants to wait for “warmer weather” since it gets cold early in T.O. and Spring isn’t exactly around the corner. I hope he’s trying to throw you off, since once the deposit is down, they start work on the ring. My SO put a deposit down on the perfect diamond over 3 weeks ago, and our jeweler told us 2 weeks (we’ve been good customers, so his order got on the speedy track.) I KNOW the ring is done and is at our jeweler, or in the house.
Just hope it’s like a hot potato when he finally gets it, and he proposes ASAP!

He never technically proposed in the traditional sense. We discussed getting married, shopped for settings and stones, then took it home after the stone was set and the ring sized. 🙂 So really, not wait time.

Darling Husband spent 4 months waiting for the “perfect moment” to propose, so it’s possible you may be waiting for spring– but you know it’s coming, enjoy the anticipation! 🙂

I bet once he has it it will burn a hole in his pocket! I’m betting he won’t be able to make it to the “warmer weather” to propose!

I actually had no idea that my husband planned to propose to me. I wanted to show him the types of rings I liked, because he knew that I wanted to get married. About a month later, he proposed. I was definitely surprised, considering he said he didn’t want to get married for another few years.
EDIT: My proposal happened to be on Christmas Day. So, yours might be trying to give a “surprise” and hopefully not wait too long if he doesn’t plan to do it for Christmas. Just try not to think about it too much, just know that it’s there, and be patient (:

Less than a week after he had the ring, he proposed. He tried to throw me off saying he wanted to wait a few months for the “right timing”. He’s a TERRIBLE liar, and plus I overheard my dad talking on the phone to my grandmother saying that my Fiance had asked him if he could marry me 🙂 he proposed 2 days later.

I am hoping he is trying to throw me off and I know it’s exciting waiting and I am really excited and full of anticipation, but I think waiting that long will be super hard! I just don’t want to nag him at all about it, in fact, I don’t want to bring it up again, I just want it to happen. But if he decides to hold onto the ring for 5-6 months, I think I will go CRAZY!!

For me, it was a matter of weeks — maybe two?

After he had the stone… almost a year. After he had the ring… a week, and only because he was out of town.
