  • poll: Did you/will you keep the ringbox he proposed with?

    Yes, it's special and I'll keep it forever

    No! Who cares about the box, the ring is on my finger

    It's probably still lying around the house somewhere but I haven't kept it especially

    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™‚
