The Turkish engagement ring that I ordered over a month ago, says it will not arrive until Sept. 26 earliest. I was hoping it would arrive before the vacation started, so I could propose to my boyfriend with this absolutely perfect, beautiful, emerald-silver ring. But it may not arrive on time. What do y'all think about proposing with a substitute ring?
