Took about 2 months, I think for mine.

My husband slightly modified a ring design the jeweler already had (remove some stones from the band, very simple ring), and from placing the order to having it in his hands took 2 weeks.

It depends if they have to cast a mold or build the setting from scratch. That can definitely take some time. If you’re just modifying an existing style, it can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months.

I had a plain band made with out stones and it took 4 weeks. For an eternity band I was quoted 8 weeks. It takes time to get stones that will match as well as having to redo any thing along the line.

the designing process took about 2 months and making of the ring about 1 month for us.

I completely designed mine from the ground up, both wedding band and engagement ring (Engagement ring after the fact, it’s a long story) and it took a month from the moment I gave the jeweler my paperwork until my diamond was reset and on my hand.

I’ve been working on the design of my ring for 10 months.  I’m a perfectionist, so I am not willing to rush into a design that I’m wishy-washy about.

damarajade:  Mine took about 4 weeks after the initial emails etc with what I wanted. It was a custom replica so I dropped my ring in, cast was ready after 2 weeks, took another 1.5 weeks for them to set the diamonds (lots of melee and pave which takes time). If we were designing from scratch it would probably have taken maybe 6-8 weeks.

I think it was about 3 weeks total (12 business days for manufacturing plus shipping time).

Mine took 8 weeks, but that took into account the 2 weeks my jeweler was away on vacation. Normally he says 6weeks. I actually think it could have been shorter b/c FI paid in full up-front, but we were cool with the 6 weeks

I have had three done. My solitaire engagement ring was about 1.5 months, it was done from a cast though so easy. I had two eternity bands done as well. One took like 4 months and one took 1 month. It just depended on how intricate the band was and availability of stones (I was super picky). Do you know he will propose as soon as he gets the ring?
