It’s a bizarre and funny story, but I was there when FH bought my ring last Friday, and they kept it to get it sized. He slipped up yesterday that he picks up the ring today. Now I’m dancing around because I’m so impatient on when he’s going to propose. How long did your DH hold onto the ring before proposing (especially if you knew he had it!)? Also, how did you bees handle the wait without constantly hassling him about it?
Mine seems to be slipping up with a lot, so I think he is super excited. We are a little old fashioned so he wants to ask my dad, and I think that is holding him back. Otherwise, I’m pretty sure he’d do it right away. I’m unsure how long he can sit on it for.

I still don’t know the exact time he picked up the ring, but it was around 5 months between the time he was visiting jewelers and the time he actually proposed.

About 6 hours haha. Apparently he was going to hold onto it for about a week before proposing but once he had it he didn’t want to wait so that was great for me!!
ETA: my ring took a month to make, 6 hours from the time he picked it up 🙂

3 days ☺ He bought the ring on a Wednesday and proposed that Saturday. He had been planning on buying a ring for about 4 months though. I didn’t know any of this though until afterwards.

4 days. I like llevinso didn’t know any of this until after the fact. My Fiance ordered the ring in July and it took 8 weeks to come in. He picked it up on a Tuesday night and proposed the following Saturday. He said he almost gave it to me that night because he was so excited. I had no clue as he never let on at all.

So mine started planning the ring in April of this year and then I think he got the ring (in July)he had it for a week before he proposed at the end of July. So I think although it took a while for everything to be finalized from visits with the diamond wholesaler he used to picking out the stone and then designing the setting etc once he physically had the ring he coulnd’t contain his excitement for too long 🙂 I had zero idea any of this was even happening. I thought he was still actively saving to one day buy me a ring to propose haha

He physcially had the ring for a week or less.

8 months altogether between me picking the ring and the proposal. I knew he bought the ring but I didn’t know when the proposal would happen. When it did, it was still a lovely surprise!

4 months!!! I didn’t choose my ring (FI bought it based on a pic I ripped out of a magazine & left out in my apt), I didn’t even know he was looking since we hadn’t even talked timeline or an engagement until months after he bought it. I found out he bought the ring in May once we got engaged in September.

2-3 months roughly. He was waiting for the right time… he first held on to it til our trip to NYC .. but then decided last minute against it because he didnt want to fly with it and risk losing it lol. Then he waited another month until our anniversay.

I think he picked it up on a Wed. or Thurs. and proposed that Saturday. I had no part in shopping and had no idea he had it until afterwards.

I’m currently in a long distance relationship (though it didn’t start out that way). We’ve been together 3 years and 6 months. I found the ring in his drawer 1 year and 6 months ago (still waiting).
Hope you get your proposal soon!

He ordered it in August and it was done in early October, arrived a week later but we were out of town so he proposed with a cz. Then he went and picked it up two days after we returned from our trip, proposed again that evening. lol…I doubt he would have waited any longer because as my mom would say “he can’t hold water” lol
