Eek, that’s exciting!! 

From this board there are some guys who get it done ASAP, and others who take months or even a year. 

I would suggest talking to him. Or do what I do- get a few drinks in him on a date night and see what he spills lol. 

My own situation- dating almost a year, discussed engagement around 6 months, looked at rings together around 9 months. At almost 11months he told me to send him the ring. This was a week ago. He told me last night (thanks margaritas!!) that he will propose ASAP when he has it. He previously told me he plans to order the ring tomorrow 🙂

So exciting!! Which settings/stones did you choose? I’ve been looking at Brilliant Earth too. I’m going to look in person at another store (because they don’t have a showroom in my city) just to see some styles in person and make sure that the styles I like online, I actually like in person, and then I’ll probably give him some links/guidelines. But that hasn’t happened yet so sorry I’m no help there. Do you think he’ll tell you when he’s placed the order? I feel like my boyfriend won’t be able to keep a secret but who knows. And I can totally relate to the fantasy football too haha.

I went engagement ring shopping with my husband and picked our three rings I would love to have. He went back to the store about a week later to buy the ring. He proposed about 4 months after that (would have been sooner but some stuff with my family was going on that kept messing up his plans).

jb1992 :  So funny, the Poppy is actually my top choice right now with a round brilliant lab diamond!! In yellow gold I think. I think I prefer a thin band, but I haven’t tried on any settings in person yet so I guess I could feel differently after trying on some different styles! I’ve been trying to find a pic on here from someone who has the Poppy but no luck so far.

My Boyfriend or Best Friend and I went to look at rings about 3 weeks ago and I told him the exact style I like, so now he knows. I don’t think he plans on getting the ring ASAP, but he’s keeping everything a surprise from here on out. I’m in the waiting game too, congrats!!! Definitely looking forward to the post when it happens for you 🙂
