    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.

    DH 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 FI had asked him if he could marry me :) he proposed 2 days later.

    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.
