Hello to all the bees on the boards this evening!
I’m a guy, who has recently purchased an engagement ring for my girlfriend, and there is one thing I wanted to ask you ladies that are already engaged/married.
Do you care about the box the ring comes in, and do you still have it? I am over the moon with the ring, and the box it came in is actually very nice, a very light varnished wood with white interior, and sturdily made.
My only issue is that it has the name of the jeweller on the inside of the top of the box – which for me is a bit of shameless advertising on their part!!
I’m probably overthinking it, and just wondered whether I should look at buying a different box?

You’re way overthinking it, lol. Congrats to you and your soon-to-be fiancee! (ETA: I don’t care about a ring box personally, and I think your gf will care much, much more about the contents than about the box! It’s just a place to store it sometimes.)

Thank you for the reply! I suppose the more I think about the proposal (a few months away yet), the more I try to think about making it perfect!
I’m sure that the ring and what it signifies is all that matters!

So long as I get an equally positive response, I’ll be happy 🙂

What’s so wrong about the jeweler getting credit for selling the ring? For me, knowing the Jeweler’s name from seeing it on the box made it really easy for me to start looking at wedding bands on their website.

I admit, a small part of me wishes the ring had come in a cute little box I could keep. But then….a much larger part of me is super glad it didn’t! I have a problem with keeping too much clutter and I’m working to cut down on that. The ring is what’s most important, I’m going to keep it forever, a fancy box is just something else that’s going to take up space solely for sentimental reasons.

she’s not going to overly inspect the box. She’s going to just be happy about the proposal itself and excited for the ring!

I still have the box my wedding bands came in, and they had the jewelers name in it. I didn’t care 🙂

I love a good ring box. I have some nice leather ones, that I love, and some from The Mrs. Box that are gorgeous. The Mrs. Box only hold smaller rings though, nothing with a big stone, but they are my favourite for looks.

I still have my box, but I didn’t care what it looked like. I kept.it for storage purposes. I actually quite liked it though, it’s woodwn and a tanish colour. Fiance said it looks like a coffin 😛

First thing, kudos on your name I’m a huge Palahniuk fan 😀<br />
also you are way over thinking most jewelers have their logo or name in their jewelry boxes so don’t sweat it 🙂

Well sure you’re overthinking it but that’s cool. If you don’t like the jeweler’s name on the box, my daughter just got me one of these for my birthday. They come in all colors, they are lovely – and they’re kind of pricey but what the heck.

I agree with PPs. You’re overthinking the box, which I think is super sweet of you. I think it’s romantic of you that you want to make everything special and just perfect for your sweetheart.
DH and I got engaged about 22 years ago (I figured this up the other day for a different thread, and really kind of freaked out about how long ago it was — ha, ha!). We’ve been married for about 16. I don’t even remember what my ring box looked like. When we were engaged, I wore my ring all the time, so I never put it back into the box. I think I actually lost the box in a move somewhere along the way. But I still have the ring. And the guy, too.
