If he’s hand carving it (completely from scratch), I think it’s a pretty good estimation for it to take 5-6 weeks. That is a LOT of detail. It’s going to take time for him to get those exact measurements, to sand the wax until the surface is supremely shiny, and then to cast it in metal and clean it up and polish, and then to set the stones and polish some more…

Computer designing would result in a considerably shorter time span, maybe a week or less to design and get the wax printed, but then the clean up and the stone setting would take additional time.

If I were you, I’d just ask him how long you should expect it to take. He might work faster or slower depending on his work load.

What sort of gemstones did you decide on, if you don’t mind me asking? That ring is delicious. 🙂

that’s beautiful!

mine took about a week and a half including being mailed across the country… shouldn’t be too far off but your jeweller should be able to tell you.
