((HUGS)) you never know he may propose without the ring… Sigh I am in the same boat btw, but because of financial reasons I know he can’t afford the ring :(.. .we’re >>here<< i am thinking closer to my birthday to get everything financially ironed out… btw a new years eve proposal may be in the works, or a wonderful snow proposal involving a snow man ๐Ÿ˜€

((HUGS)) i too am in a similar boat. We had a mix up and SO is not going to be able to by the e-ring until the 18th, which he plans to do, but who knows how long it will take to get ready after he purchases it then.

 

Does anyone know how long it takes between purchace and take home?

He may actually get the ring! My fiance kept telling me and having the jewlery store tell me that i was not getting the stone that i wanted and it would take a while to set! Well I got it about 2 weeks after we went and looked! ๐Ÿ™‚ He proposed the friday before thanksgiving and the day before our 2 year anniversary! GOOD LUCK!

I got a proposal without a ring.  We didn’t know his family was going to offer his grandma’s ring until we bought mine…  Better that his family give it to one of the many girls in the family, anyway ๐Ÿ™‚

@mattel: that would be really awesome for him to propose with his grandmom’s set.. you could wear it on your right hand after he gets the other ring

@snake: it really depend on if it’s a chain store with selections readily available or if it’s a smaller jeweler who has to custom make everything.

Why not use a place like bluenile.com – everything there can be set and shipped in 24 hours, the quality cannot be beat, and you get the best deal since it isn’t a traditional brick and mortar store. 

Fiance bought my ring there and its beautiful.  It also came with a full GIA certification and an independent appraisal.  The ring appraised for $8,000 more than he spent.  I am so happy with it and can’t wait to get my matching wedding bands as well.

There are also 10% coupons to be used towards the setting and wedding bands.

It’s the best deal you can get on a diamond.  I actually just got an appraisal for a different diamond ring and the appraiser who is GIA certified said that bluenile offers the best return for your investment because they don’t have the overhead that they need to pay for and can pass on the savings to the customer.

@crebre80:  I know!  If he had bought the ring at a place like Tiffany or Cartier, it wouldn’t be even close to what I have.
