If you want to pay out of pocket many places will do it in store and you get it back the same day.  I think it usually costs around $30.

I don’t think I’d feel weird since you’d have a reason for not having it….but that’s just me. We ordered mine in October or November and mine won’t be here for another 3 weeks still, so I’ve been without one forever now!!! 🙁

@BriansBride:  It might just need to be buffed. I thought my ring needed to be redipped and the jeweler looked at me like I was nuts, took it in the back and buffed it, and brought it back white and shiny like new! And that was free 🙂

@BriansBride:  Will people want to take pictures of it? Based on the showers I’ve been to, no. However, I do think they’ll want to check out your bling and compliment you and your FI.

This wouldn’t really bother me, but I’d probably look for a quicker place.  I’ve got jewelry dipped in under a week.

@BriansBride:  I know exactly what you mean – I didn’t have mine for our engagement party because I had broken it haha!  It totally feels weird, I get it.

Pay to get it done at a local jeweler, would be my suggestion!

@BriansBride:  As a bride, it would have been a big deal to me, but now that I am married and look back on my bridal shower, no. No one took any pics or it or really even asked/cared to see it because mostly everyone there had already seen it, and if they hadn’t they would see it at the wedding 🙂

At showers people sometimes ask to see the ring if they haven’t yet, but its not a big deal.  If anyone asks just tell them the truth, it’s hardly uncommon for a ring to be at the jewler getting cleaned, resized, fixed, etc.

Yes, I think I would feel weird about not having it! I agree with previous posters on paying a little extra and getting it done locally.

@BriansBride:  I would look elsewhere.  I just had mine redipped and it took 2 days.  All those chain stores do that.  Go to a privately owned jewelry store.

@BriansBride:  I’d have a local jeweler who can do it in a day do it, at least this once. I don’t think it’s a big deal, but I think I’d want to have my ring for my shower. Every shower I’ve been to someone has asked to see the ring, or it has been talked about. Especially for people who haven’t seen it yet! The picture thing is less of a worry.

@BriansBride:  No it;s not a big deal at all.

Why would anyone be taking pictures of your ring?  If they ask to see it, just say it’s getting replated.

I had my bridal shower this past weekend and literally only one person even asked to see my ring. I wouldn’t worry too much about it!

I agree with PPs; go to a local jeweler and they should be able to help you much quicker.
