    craigslistgirl:  I think he was trying to throw me off. But I can only imagine what those poor employees thought! It’s a small local privately owned store, so it’s not like there were that many people who worked there including the owner! When we finally went back to announce that we were engaged, they told me what they had gone through. I just gave DH a “Seriously” Look and shook my head. I am still 100% in love with my ring and I don’t have 2nd thoughts about upgrading or changing it.

    We are going back to have my anniversary band custom made for our vow renewals. The stones will be white sapphires, topaz, and aquamarine to look like ocean waves.

    Around 1 month.  We went ring shopping and the ring was custom made and we went through a short consultation process with the jeweller.  The ring arrived a little earlier than expected.  He popped the question the day after he received the ring, because he said he couldn’t wait to propose and it all happened on Christmas Eve.

    It was such a relief for me because while we were waiting he kept teasing and saying that when he gets the ring he’s going to do lots of fake proposals to psych me out, I did *not* want to go through all that. Hooray for his impatience!

    I think I first did some ring research online in December or maybe November, we first browsed at a jewelery store in December (but decided to get my engagement ring after the proposal), and he proposed in early March. So about 3 months. We had agreed it would happen by September, and for a bit he hinted that it would be during the summer lol, but I think it happened at the perfect time for us (:

    I just realized I have no idea when he bought the sterling silver ring he proposed with. He got it off Amazon, so I’m sure it shipped quickly, and either he hid the package before I had a chance to see it or he said it was something boring.
