OooOOoOOooOO! How exciting! As far as a typical time period goes… my fiance ordered my ring 2 weeks before he was going to give it to me. The big thing was though, that there was a freak snow storm in the state it was being shipped from (he ordered through Blue Nile). When I opened the new deep freezer (one of my ‘fake out’ gifts) he gave me for Christmas, it had a note explaining that my ring should be at our house in a couple of days. πŸ™‚ So, mine should have been about 2 weeks, but was a little longer due to mother nature. Congrats on your soon-to-be engagement!

My boyfriend bought me a ring for my 21st birthday, and I had NO IDEA he had been shopping around for it…apparently he’d looked into at least ten jewelers, and although we had looked at rings in the mall, I didn’t have a clue! He also gave it to me three months before my birthday because he couldn’t stand waiting, haha. Maybe your guy is as impatient as mine won’t be able to resist giving it to you soon? πŸ˜‰ I’m so happy for you, enjoy these days!

My fiance had the ring for about 2 months before he gave it to me because we had planned a vacation and he wanted to wait until then

Sigh, I wish mine would start already! I do not like waiting very much, especially since we’ll probably get married next August (yay for short engagements!)

From the time he BOUGHT the ring, it took about 6 weeks to come in.  It’s such an exciting time – congratulations!

How exciting!! I think it will be really soon because he has involved your mom in the search.

Oh, exciting! My Fiance couldn’t even wait until the ring was in to propose! But, had the ring been ready when it was supposed to be, it would have been a few hours before he gave it to me! It would have been burning a hole in his pocket, I guess!

From what I’ve heard, once the ring is in the boy’s possession, it burns a hole in their pocket! FH had the ring for just over a week before he proposed and he said he considered doing it even earlier but held out to go through with his original plan. All of his friends who are engaged have said the same thing, once the ring was in their possession, all they wanted to do was propose! However, it might take some time to get the ring he chooses, since depending on what he gets, they might have to order it or resize it or order another stone or something…So just bc he went shopping today doesn’t mean he’ll come home with it (but pat him down when he does, just to make sure!)…Either way, you’re so close, it’s going to happen sooooooon!!

EEK!!! I’m so excited for you!!!

I know how you feel, I have trouble with surprises too.

Try not to psych yourself out – he’s going to do it, and like you said, since your mom knows, it’ll probably be soon!!!

Tell us all about it when it happens!!!

My Faince bought a ring the very first time he ring shopping, and waited 2 weeks to give it to me. He proposed to me infront of the Red Love Statue in Central Philadelphia.
