    I saw the ring in person on a Friday. Was away for work so he had it shipping to him in CA; it arrived on Tuesday. He came home Friday and proposed Saturday. So 8 days πŸ™‚

    @MrsShev:  nope. We looked at/talked about rings one time, in December, for about 5 minutes. He didn’t propose until August. So once he had the ring it didn’t take long, but it took a while to get there πŸ™‚

    Good luck! Fingers crossed it’s on your finger soon!

    his grandma was sending the ring. he actually asked before he got it. good thing i didnt care and said yes. i didnt even realize he planned on asking with a ring at all. he actually bought a sterling silver ring to propose with that fit on my pinky. so after i had to wait close to two months  for the ring after lol.

    We picked p the ring not too long ago and the anxiety is killing me. I think it might happen this weekend, but I’m afraid to get my hopes up. I feel like I’m going to explode.

    Mine was from Blue Nile. He got it on a Friday, and then Saturday afternoon he proposed. He definitely couldn’t wait.

    Although, my friend’s Fiance bought her ring in March but didn’t propose until late June. And he was the one most excited for marriage. Go figure!

    We went ring shopping on Sunday, 12/2/12, picked up the completed ring on Friday, 12/7/12, and he proposed on Thursday, 1/16/13.  It was a pretty open process from start to finish, and I knew that he’d propose sometime before this upcoming May 4th because that’s when his family decided to hold our engagment ceremony (long story:  basically, his family got wind of the fact that we were *close* to getting engaged, and decided they’d schedule a ceremony to celebrate said engagement, before they even knew when it would happen!).

    He picked up the ring from the jeweler, drove home, walked in the door of our house and proposed immediately.  πŸ™‚    I was sitting at the dining room table opening mail, it was so romantic, lol.  He got down on one knee and asked me.  It was so sweet!  I was pretty surprised he did it so quickly but I don’t think he could stand it.  I was so damn happy not to have to wait!!!

    He picked up the ring that morning, drove the 3 hours to my house for a pre-planned visit, and proposed within 5 minutes of getting home.  Totally random and unexpected…we had planned on waiting several months before getting engaged!

    I hope my SO follows in your DH/FI footsteps, by putting the ring on my finger right after he picks it up from the jeweler πŸ™‚
