l’m not surprised you are fed up. I will never, ever understand the buying of a ring and hanging on to it . Especially when the woman ( whose future it also is) knows it’s been bought.

l accept of course that people like to do things differently, but rings in sock drawers for months is a difference too far for me and ‘surprise’ just not a reasonable explanation. Just my opinion of course.

We started looking at rings in November 2017, we started the design process in March 2018 and picked up the finial product in early June. He proposed yesterday (30/9/18) so total I waited about 4 months from ring in the house to ring on the finger. 

It was torture to wait that long. I wish we had of set a timeframe. It drove me crazy waiting that long but it was well worth it!

He purchased the ring mid-February and proposed in mid-April.

My fiancé sneakily went ring shopping with his sister-in-law on a Thursday. They got the ring set and in his hands by the next day (so, Friday), and he proposed the following Wednesday (it was Fourth of July). He said he almost left the ring with his sister-in-law because he said he shouldn’t be trusted with it and was so nervous about holding onto it for the FIVE days he had it before proposing. I laughed so much when he told me that. He loses things a lot, so it made sense, lol.

 

To answer your question simply, 5 days, lol.
