I finally decided on an engagement ring about 2 weeks ago. We went to a local jeweler and pieced together our dream ring. Here’s a few images of the diamonds placed on the setting (not sized yet). I have been instructed by my boyfriend to not ask any questions from here on out (since I’m the planner in our relationship).
How long did your rings take to make? How do you patiently wait and take your mind off things? Any feedback on the rings would be appreciated or on being engaged would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance 🙂

It’s so beautiful, congratulations. I had to wait 5 weeks for my ring to arrive and it was a really anxious wait as it was from an online jeweller, so I didn’t get to try it on beforehand. I was so worried it wouldn’t turn out right! Hopefully you can be happy in the knowledge that you know you love your ring already 🙂

artsyhoneybee : Hey Bee! I am in the same boat as you ( I am the planner too!). I have been banned from asking any type of engagement-related questions to both my partner AND/OR my best friends until further notice!
My partner and I went to the jeweller’s to have an heirloom stone re-set.. they told us 2-3 weeks.. and then the setting had some bubbles in the metal so it took another 2-3 weeks.. and then the (family business) jeweller went on vacation for 1 week, and just got back this week and if I don’t get my baby soon I’m gonna lose it! Haha! My apologies for the run-on sentence. This is probably the worst part of waiting – when it’s sooooo close you can taste it. Some of my friends told me it would be a good idea to just keep my nails in perfect condition until our engagement party ( which yes, it is already planned for late October..no shame!). The only way I have been keeping sane is by throwing myself into engagement party planning, and looking up photographers and photo ideas for our engagement shoot.
Love the ring by the way 🙂

Wow, I really love this, it’s pretty similar to what my “dream ring” is…do you mind sharing the specs?

Alot of the time frame depends on the jeweler, sometimes it can take several months of design and sometimes it can be done in just a few weeks. You have a pretty straight forward design so I wouldn’t anticipate it taking very long. I have a three stone dream ring as well, they are so great!

That’s going to be STUNNING! As for waiting… just “enjoy” the anticipation, I guess!

Mine took maybe 6 weeks? Not exact on the timeframe. It was definitely a month at the very least.
I did a lot of wedding research in that time. I am a planner too, and talking to vendors really gave me a sense of reassurance regarding how to handle logistics of the wedding. Now that we’ve secured the venue, I feel everything else will fall in place and my wedding brain finally calmed down. I needed this distraction to keep me from second guessing the ring design, worrying about whether it would turn out right, etc. The frenzy is real.

I love that. I was between an emerald and a round when I was shopping, so pretty. I don’t know how to tell you how to be patient, I lost of god damn mind while I was waiting for mine lol

I don’t have any advice on getting the ring made. Mine was vintage and just happened to fit perfectly 🙂
I just wanted to drop in to say your ring is GORGEOUS. It’s very stunning and unique. I love it!

Thank you all so much for your replies and feedback. Trying to be patient and not doubt the ring I chose so your replies are incredibly helpful!
daxsymbiote : Absolutely! It’s a 1.57ct lab diamond center stone, G in color, VS2 in clarity. The side stones are mined diamonds and are cadillac cut and have a total weight of 0.5 ct.
