Try JuliaB  on etsy. Much better pricing than the Mrs box too (and from what I hear, less hit or miss on quality) and you get a double row. You can also make them if you are patient and have time. I have seen a few people do this here and there – check out I think the Pricescope thread on them and there is a poster who made them and shows a bit of her process. I think many of the Mrs boxes (if not all) are no longer made with actual vintage velvet anymore anyway which makes them even more overpriced IMO.

Here is link to JuliaB’s: https://www.etsy.com/listing/248416065/julias-wedding-ring-box-handmade-velvet?ref=shop_home_active_1

leonatigra:  Oh, good find, I had not seen that vendor before. I do have one of those style boxes but it came with another ring I bought. It’s much cheaper to buy the box all by itself then be buying rings to get them! 

I totally get you on the customs and so on. I am in Canada so deal with higher shipping, duties, brokerage, taxes and all that too. I do have the benefit of not living too far from the border if it is going to be a major cost savings to ship there and broker myself. Not really so easy for you 🙂

Good luck!

There is a lovely company in UK England called La Petit Box that does sell these vintage antique inspired heirloom velvet ring boxes and so much much cheaper than The Mrs Box, who in my opinion is riducloiusly expensive. They even offer a monogram service for the vintage style velvet ring boxes too, like The Mrs Box http://www.lapetitbox.co.uk/ and they offer free P&P to Europe and the UK. I found them on Instagram a few weeks ago.
