Hi all!

I'm due to propose in 17 days (march 25th). I've got it all planned out. Is it possible to buy a ring from one online shop, a setting from another, have them shipped, appraised and set before then?

Believe it or not, i've been researching for months now. But my budget's so low, I haven't been able to find the "perfect" deal yet. And worse case scenario, I've got a contingency plan which would only take a few days. It's for a ring I know she loves but the diamond is not great (and I can't get them to just sell me the setting). Still, online seems to be the way to go for my extremely tight budget ($3200). So, do you think it can be done in 17 days?

Thanks in advance!
