    Oh I would’ve been sad! That was your e-ring’s ring box! Now it doesn’t have one. πŸ™

    Aww, that sucks. I don’t sleep with my e-ring so it goes back into it’s box every night.

    My husband didn’t propose with the box my ring came in since he bought my rings as a set.  Regardless, I was very upset with him after our wedding when I found out he didn’t have the ring box anymore.  I wasn’t sure why, I just wanted it.  He was able to track it down (he had handed it off to one of our friends who we don’t see very often), but it took a few months.  So I understand why you’re upset.

    Hah – you know, I can’t bring myself to throw away – or even PUT away – the boxes our e-rings came in. They sit awkwardly on SO’s bookshelf. I keep telling myself I’ll think of a clever way to reuse them, but I kind of think I just like seeing them every day.

    Since I’m so lazy and still haven’t gone to buy something cute to put mine in, I put mine back in it’s box every night. I leave the box open because I’m stupid and have to reassure myself that it’s still there when I don’t have it on. Anyways, yeah I would have been sad too. πŸ™ I mean obviously the ring is the “important” part but I’m kind of a sentimental weirdo and still have the tag we got on my car the day he proposed (the hang tag — we were at a state park).

    I realize that it wouldn’t be THE box, but maybe contact your jeweler?  Chances are, they have dozens in the backroom.  They would probably get you another one, and I doubt that they would charge…

    I will keep mine, once I get it, I have all of my other big item boxes, I even kept my coach box from my last purse, I just love them. Hoarder? Maybe but I love them. I would cry if FH gave it away. I would try to get it back, or make him get me something cooler to put it in like a new car or house, jk, not that big of a thing, but something to make me forget that box ever existed.

    I didn’t keep mine because we ended up purchasing it when we just went to look. I was so excited that I forgot about getting a box for it. I just wore it out of the store, but I do have the box for my wedding band, and I will be keeping that one πŸ™‚

    I keep mine in the ring box while I sleep (I’m paranoid that I will take it off in my sleep and my dog will eat it haha)

    @Miss Tattoo: me too. And it also sleeps in the ring box when I’m at work because I work with my hands and can’t wear jewelry.

    Fiance proposed with a family ring that was, for convenience, placed in a vintage Bailey, Banks & Biddle box in the family safe deposit box (e-ring didn’t come from B,B&B at any point in its life). It has a cute little gold button on the outside that you press to open it. When he proposed in December, I put the box in my purse to take to show my family. It’s stayed in there ever since – I just love having it with me. It’s a beautiful little box πŸ™‚
