The Ring Box…

I don’t even remember what the ring box looked like and I have no idea where it is now. When I take my ring off (at nighttime and when I shower) I put it on a trinket dish on my bedside table. So personally I don’t think it’s necessary to overthink the box. I’m sure many others will disagree with me though.

My fiance had a really cool ring box from etsy (it was flat and the ring spun out of it when opened), but yes, it does just sit in the drawer now.  I thought it was really cool when I saw it but then literally did not think of it again.  I don’t think you need to buy anything special.

I have the James Allen box my ring came in. I didn’t think I was sentimentality attached to it, until I thought I left it at a hotel. It was the box he used to propose.

I’m buying a travel box, so I don’t lose the original.

I guess it depends on the person.

Not sure that it is exactly unique but I used a few different boxes. Including the one it came in. And also this one. It’s my favourite. If you want to know the maker I can absolutely tell you or anyone else who asks 🙂

My ring came in a nifty little box that had a little light in it that turned when you opened it and really made the ring pop.

It was pretty cool but I couldn’t tell you where it is now. If you like the box and think she will like it then there’s no harm but I think it will just sit in a drawer after.

Since I never take my rings off, the box definately just sit in the drawer.  I do keep it just in case I need to remove them.

My husband proposed with the simple black velvet box the ring came in. The ring has only been back in the box a handful of times since we got married 2.5 years ago. While a cute box might be fun, realistically I think it’s unnecessary to spend $50-100 for a ring box that’ll barely be used. If your fiance really “needs” one for pictures or what not, you can order one then. I’d guess most women don’t care.

I didn’t think any thing of the box at first, but since I’m ordering from China I started to look into them because I didn’t want just the generic box it came in. And now I am really excited about a special ring box that means a lot to both of us. One of our favorite movies is “Up”, and I found a few ring boxes inspired by the movie so I showed my FH, and he loved the idea too! If it’s something special to you I think you’ll be more inclined to make more use of it for that reason. Also, both of those boxes are beautiful!! I really wanted one like the first picture until I found the other ones!

Our boxes (we had two with different designs for his ring and for mine) had our wedding date and initials printed in the lid.

I take it along with me when I travel or don’t want to wear my ring. 

Plus, it’s an excuse to have our wedding date printed in gold somewhere. 😉

I just ordered ours for the wedding yesterday. 

 

 

The text will say something different – 

if you love it, and it’s in your budget, why not 🙃

 

But I love ring boxes, and that vintage one is to die for ❤️

My ring is from Brilliant Earth and came in a super lightweight, wooden box. I love it! I keep it on my nightstand and put my ring in it at night (sometimes, althought I don’t really like to take it off!) I would definitely not recommend overthinking the box! But, putting a little bit of effort into it will unlikely to be for not. Yes, it will likely get put in a drawer or out of sight eventually, but maybe not! And the sentimentality of it will be nice. Don’t spend a crazy amount by any means!

I purchased a beautiful wooden, monogrammed box with velvet interior on Etsy for my sister in law- it was (IMO) reasonably priced for such an item and great quality. If you’re interested in having her new monogram on a box, let me know and I’ll share the shop name!

 I actually didn’t like the box that my engagement ring came in and was a bit disapointed at first but now it just sits in a drawer. When I take my ring off I keep it in a small dish and don’t even think about the box. I have another jewellery box I’m going to use for our wedding photos, one that I got with a different piece of jewellery. If a ring box is something you want for photos or a keepsake then go for, if not you won’t even miss it. By the way the boxes you posted are super cute!

I think the box is a great proposal addition if you know it’s something your partner likes.

I don’t have the original box my ring came in, I use my grandmothers antique jewlery box the most and a few smaller boxes that I’ve picked up over the years (kimono coin zipper pouch from Etsy, snap box from another compartment jewlery box, grey velvet box from a previous jewlery purchase and a vintage swan ring holder)
