I didn’t have to get mine sized, but I did order the diamond and the setting seperately from online jewelers, took about 2 weeks to get them both in; and we wanted to wait until I had the ring to tell people we were engaged, so it seemed like forever!

I had to wait over two weeks from the proposal date to when we got the proper sized ring. It was torture!  For the first week I had the actual ring saved in the box so I could show immediate family.  The second week it was at the store being sized.  It stinks being so excited about it and not being able to wear it, but you will live!

I haven’t had to yet, but I will have to get a custom wedding band made, so I will have to send my ring away for about 2 weeks. Sooo not looking forward to it! I already told my fiance he can buy me a CZ replacement for those two weeks!

I got my engagement ring sized right before the wedding, and in the meantime, Mike got me a gigantic (like 5 carat) fake ring from Claire’s.  It was hilarious.  I bet strangers were like “that poor girl is so happy about her ring and she has no idea it cost $10!”.

It’s still a half-size too big and slides around like crazy, but I’m stalling.  I ordered a pretty silver ring from Etsy and I’ll finally take it in when my temporary replacement arrives.

8 days left and counting. I’m wearing the promise ring he gave me like 10 years ago in its place but still…

I went a little crazy too, it took about 2 weeks to get it back but it felt like forever. I wore another ring on that finger, but it wasn’t the same.

When we went to look for rings, they sized my finger so my finace didn’t even propose ’till after he had the ring already in the correct size. I’m going to send my ring in this week though, to get redipped so that it matches the band and isn’t dull for the wedding, and I’ll go crazy then!

I wore it for a good 2 weeks with ribbon wrapped around the bottom so it would stay on my finger. The jeweler was fast once we brought it in, I just didn’t want to part with it!
