    I think it was 4-5days BUT he’d been planning for 5 months without me knowing. I think he wanted to get the ring as close to the date as possible, that way I wouldn’t find it but he knew by that point that our holiday was happening and everything was on track.

    It was 6 days. It arrived about a day and a half after he ordered it and he waited four days to give it to me because he was out of town.

    My ring was supossed to be a birthday present, He bought the ring in Nov. on a black friday special then go it about a month later in Dec. and proposed. He was supossed to do it in January but just as a birthday present he said the ring was so pretty he knew he had to especially since we had just started getting serious. I was completely surprised! I was living with my dad at the time and ran upstairs to tell him and I said well I know you two are going to get married someday and I said no seriously and showed him a ring and he said I didn’t know there was a ring involved and hugged both of us!

    I picked other, it was under a month. I had no idea it was going to be that quick but I went on vacation and when I got back he brought me engagement ring shopping, then in three weeks we were on vacation again and he popped the question with the exact ring I fell in love with and even the diamond I loved!!! : )
