It is definitely annoying when you know he has the ring and so does everybody else. It makes waiting soooo much harder! Could it be possible he is having it reset or cleaned? Or it could be like the rest of us waiting bees that he is waiting for the perfect moment and time to propose. I know its hard to be patient and you want to say hey where is my ring! 🙂 I am sure it will come when you least expect it.

I’m sure he is probably planning something perfect for you in the way of a proposal.  Fiance had my ring (also a family heirloom) reset for me and even showed me the plastic mock-up that the jeweler made (SUCH a tease!) before he finally proposed.  I know that it’s driving you crazy, but I swear, the best thing I ever did was NOT assume every night out or special occasion was going to end in a proposal.  We went on TWO vacations (including Maui-hello, so romantic!) and several dinners out before he finally proposed, and I think if I was fixating on the proposal those fun times would have been disappointing to me.

Yikes!  It sucks that your grandmother told you she gave it to him, that ruins the surprise!  Maybe he’s waiting for the right time, and he hadn’t planned to give it to you so soon.  She may have wanted him to propose right away, but in the end he decides when he’ll propose and how.  My only advice would be to let him know she called.  He may feel a little heat and get the hint (but don’t tell him she’s asking whether he proposed yet, that’s too much!).

i’m assuming that you’ve spoken to him about it then, but that definately sucks.

are there any special events coming up that you can see him maybe wanting to wait for? or would he need to have the ring resized or anything?

anyways! welcome to wedding bee!! can’t wait to hear updates, and hopefully it’ll be soon!
