Geez!  I just had the same situation but it only took 24 hours.  Do they have to send it off?

Have you thought about getting a cheap “stand-in” ring while you’re waiting?

@Roxykitten:  

It’s funny you bring this up because I was worried about being in your situation, and I know I won’t want to wait to wear my engagement ring once it’s in my hands. Because I have known that he has been planning, I talked to him about the size of the ring. We went to the mall…to a random jewelry store…to have my ring finger sized. I’m a 5 and 1/2. Once we figured that out, he contacted the jeweler to have my ring re-sized (rings are always sold as a size 7 before they’re sized…that would have been HUGE!). At this point, I know he’ll ask me before my birthday on 12/02, and I CANNOT WAIT!!! Thanks for your post…I now know that I did the right thing πŸ˜‰

It took our jeweler 45 minutes to do mine- resized it from an 8 to a 6.75 and cleaned it. Maybe that’s the benefit of a private jeweler?

@Roxykitten:  Really?? I didn’t know that. There’s a mart here where all jewelry is sold whole sale, so you can get crazy good deals on stuff and they’ll hand make or be able to find you whatever you may want/need. Your ring will be back before you know it!

I know exactly how you feel. I just dropped off my new engagement ring to get sized too and it’s going to take the jewlers 8-12 days to get my ring back to me. I miss it already and it’s only been 5 hours without it. I still want to show more people my ring but can’t for awhile now. I don’t have any suggestions on how to be ok with waiting but I’m there with ya! I’m going to focus on the fact that we are engaged and I’m so so happy with that since I was waiting for him and went through a really difficult time waiting and my dream came true of him asking which has been wonderful! But it would be nice to see that sparkly on my finger still since it feels naked without it now.

WOW!! My Fiance got my ring from a private jeweler, and they re-sized it in an hour! plus cleaned it. I couldn’t and wouldn’t be able to wait that long!

@Roxykitten:  

The jeweler probably told him not to get it sized until after proposing in case you wanted changes made…or, you needed to return it for some reason. At least that’s what the jeweler told my boyfriend according to him. So, he was probably doing that as a safeguard because he loves you so much. No worries. You’ll have that ring on your hand soon…and, it will fit like a glove (or like a really, really sparkly and awesome engagement ring ;p )

Thanks for the congratulations even though it hasn’t happened yet πŸ™‚ You’re so sweet! I’ll definitely post an update when it does πŸ˜‰

Same thing happened with me! They told me it would be back in 7-10 days. I waited almost a month!
