I had a new band/setting made at Verragio – that took a month. Fine. Then I had to send my diamond in to be set. I was told it would take a week and it’s been TWO WEEKS. The woman I spoke to on Friday said it would be here Monday (aka TODAY). I just called and was told it was being shipped today and would arrive tomorrow. I’ve been ringless for 15 days and it’s driving me bananas.
(Thanks for listening)

Awww. That would drive me bananas as well.
Just keep thinking about how shiny and new looking you’re new ring will be tomorrow 🙂 Ah…the wait will be worth it.

I’m on week 6, so don’t feel too badly 🙂 Our engagement is only 4 months, and at this rate, I’ll be missing my ring for half of it. Hardly any of our friends or family have gotten to see it, and I’ll probably be ringless for my ENGAGEMENT PARTY. I WISH I’d gotten off with 16 days.

Sorry! Tomorrow will be here soon.

Thanks Bees. I know there are bigger problems in the world, but this is my biggest one today. And, I guess for that I am thankful!

@lauramich: I know the feeling — my ring was too big when he first gave it to me, so we went a couple days later to have it resized. I didn’t realize it would take 2 weeks! I initially left it there, but then went back two days letter to get it (it hadn’t been sent off yet). I felt like I needed some time with the ring so I could get used to the idea and have something to show people when I told friends and family I was engaged. Seems silly, but makes sense when you think about it. I just wore a plastic band around it to keep it in place and then brought it in a couple weeks later…when I was ready to let it go for a bit. 🙂

Oh, I know how you feel. I took mine in to get appraised, which only took a week, but it was no fun. It felt so weird and I re-learned all my bad ring habits (twisting it around, taking it off and on) when I got it back. I would HATE having it gone for a month or more!

Aw, I’m sorry. Once I get my ring I really don’t know if I’ll ever want to give it up!

Hilarious I felt the same way when one of my diamonds were a little loose. It feels so wrong and weird for your finger to be nakey.. at least thats what I felt like lol

I know it sucks.. we had to wait nearly 3 months for mine to be resized and it was AWFUL. Just think how much more special it’ll be when you get back!
