I know my SO is getting a ring custom made, he is going through his aunt as she very generously offered up her old wedding band to be melted down and the goldsmith she used for the second one. Other than that, I told him not to tell me so I’ll be surprised.
Now yesterday, he suddenly leaves the room to answer a call, but I can still hear most of the conversation. At first I wasn’t listening, but then I started to hear unusual things. It sounded like he was working out a payment schedule. After that my ears perk up and as he goes on to talk about family things I realize yup that’s the aunt he’s talking to!
So from what I overheard it seems clear to me that the final price has been decided and the guy now needs to be paid. Does that mean the ring is ready? Or just the design and stones finalized? My mind started racing as I started to overanalyze all the bits I heard. Gosshhh it’s so hard to wait knowing this is coming!!

It’s funny, I’ve been reading these boards for quite a while and just officially joined because I overheard a similar sounding conversation so I feel like it’s coming soon. It’s making getting through finals more impossible than usual because I’m so antsy! Sending good vibes your way!

They probably just finalized the design. Jeweler typically won’t start work for custom pieces without at least a downpayment. But that’s wonderful news! You’re almost there 🙂

This sounds very exciting regardless, even if this is the downpayment to start the work, it means a ring is now in the making and things will start becoming very real for you! 🙂

SO teased me last night! He left the room to talk to his aunt, came back and said, “She has good news!” and then left it at that.
