2 months. 

We went ring shopping in August. He collected the ring (with me) in October. Proposed on NYE.

He proposed with a placeholder ring and took me shopping immediately after he proposed.  I gather he had the placeholder ring a few weeks before proposing.

8 months. He got the ring in Sept and proposed in March. He wanted to wait until after our birthdays, anniversay, Christmas, etc were all over and then surprise me while on a long weekend away.

6 months. He bought it in February and wanted to propose on a camping trip and it got pushed back a little further into the summer than he wanted because my mom was dealing with some pretty significant health problems and I was really busy helping her out at the start of the summer.

I absolutely loved my proposal, it was perfect for us. I don’t care at all that he waited a bit after buying the ring.

We got mine in late February (which I knew about). Come early May I asked him why he hadn’t proposed yet (I am not known for my delicate subtlety) and he said he couldn’t think of a gesture grand enough. I refrained from rolling my eyes and told him I required no grand gesture and why don’t we go on a ROMANTIC HIKE NEXT WEEKEND HINT HINT FOR GOD’S SAKE

Probably about 4 hours if I remember correctly. It wasn’t a surprise, which is what I wanted, so it was delivered in the afternoon and he proposed after work.

I believe it was about 2 months. He picked it up in late June (around our 4 year anniversary which I thought was going to be when he would propose), but didn’t propose until late August.
