I’m driving my FI crazy so I’m writing it out here in the hopes that once I’ve put it to paper (metaphorically speaking), i’ll calm down.
This is my ring.
Isn’t she so lovely? It’s the nicest thing I’ve ever owned, and the most meaningful. I’ve never been a diamond girl, but oh man oh man! Did I ever get used to seeing those lovely sparklies out of the corner of my eye all the time.
We ordered the matching wedding band in Jul, but when it came in, it didn’t fit/match at all, so I had to send my ring off so that they could make it properly. At first I was told it could be done in a week. But when I dropped it off, the lady told me that it was just too different, and that they have to remake the whole band, and it would be anywhere from 4 to 8 weeks.
I dropped it off on Aug 21st.
At first it was ok. Of course I missed it a little, but i never thought too much about it. It didn’t consume me or anything.
But now it’s day 44 and i’ve become a crazy lady! I’m missing my ring like crazy! I think about it all day. I notice it’s absense all the time. I check my phone 90 times a day in the hopes that the jewerly store has called to tell me it’s in. My FI is tired of me sighing when I look at my hand and it’s not there! I know I’m being ridiculous. I’m a rational person, and i know this.
How do I get my mind off this!? I need patience! Bah!

Oh man, that sounds so rough! I hope it comes back to you soon! In the meantime, I know I would NEED some sort of stand-in ring, if I don’t have a ring on now (even for like, the 5 minutes it takes to shower), my thumb grazes the inside of my finger constantly, looking for it, and I freak out big time! Do you at least have something else filling your gorgeous ring’s spot?

I got a beautiful moissy ring as a stand in while I wait for my custom set. When my finger is not naked, I don’t miss it as badly 🙂 It’s been 64.5 days, lol

Oh my goodness that’s such a long time!! My ring is at the shop getting the prongs tightened and getting redipped and replated! It’s been two days and it’s awful, I’m going insane. I can’t wait to pick it up later tonight!! AHH!

@Rusalka: 64.5 days!? Oh nose!!! I hope you gets yours back soon!
FI and talked about a stand in the day i dropped it off, but i told him he’d have to pick it to be meaningful or else i’d feel a tad silly. I had a feeling he was going to, and i would have been happy with a $10 kiosk ring but then he told me he started looking at expensive moissy ones and decided that i was fine and could wait patiently. >< Now it’s been too long, and i’m afraid that i’ll get the call the day i buy some new ring.
It’ll be ok of course, i just needed to get it out of my system.

Thank you for posting this! It seems like such a little and silly thing, but I am missing my engagement ring too. Mine’s been getting fixed for 54 days. First I was told 6 weeks, then October. I’m soooo waiting for that phone call! At least I have my wedding ring to wear.

So today is day 57! Because it’s officially past the eight week mark, I popped into to ask them to get me an update.
And…….. they can’t find my paper work anywhere. All three employees were going through drawers and random stacks of paper trying to find it. Which they never did.
They assure me it was sent off, apparetly another employee who wasn’t working today did it and one of them remembered seeing her send it off but they told me they have to wait till she’s back at work on Thursday to find out where the paperwork is.
I JUST WANT MY RING BACKKKK!K!KK!K!jflksdhtphAFRYYCEKTHWCFJRHTCSNGHWSRHYR
OK, i feel better now. I just needed to get that out.
