my favorites are the leather two door ring boxes.  But i really don’t care that much as long as it’s not those cardboard jewelry boxes you get from outlet places like overstock.com

Yes! I hated the box my ring came in, so I bought a few mahogany boxes for our rings.  I totally know where you’re coming from.

My ering came in the leather “double door” one, and I thought it was the cutest thing. Also, knowing my Mom held onto it for 8 months and that she would peek at it every day – that kind og box seems just right for peeking 🙂

My e-ring came in a velvet pouch, very small jeweler in a rural area set the stone. My wedding band came in a pink box lined in white.  Didn’t like either but my rings stay on a ring holder when I’m not wearing them anyway.

Haha, that’s funny that you wrote this post. We picked my e-ring out together at a really nice jewelry store, but the ring itself was affordable for us (me – grad student, him – full time artist). They handed it to me in a tiny ziploc bag. Obviously they thought it was just a promise ring or a “for fun” ring and that it didn’t deserve a box. 🙁

hubs got this wedgewood ring “box” free when he bought my ering, so all my rings go in there every night (his class ring is in there now)

I like the plain gray Shane Co. box that my rings came in because my rings really stand out and look beautiful in it. There isn’t anything on the box to take away from the ring. I do keep my band in the original box, but I never use the original box for my e-ring. That sits on my ring holder when I’m not wearing it. I’ve never thought about it before, but maybe the plainer the box, the more magnificent the ring looks?

Brilliant Earth rings come in really beautiful wooden boxes, apparently made of wood from New Zealand. I also saw a wedding slideshow recently (I think on Style Me Pretty) and they had a ring bow from Brilliant Earth that was made to hold two rings.. I was very cool!

Luckily both my engagement ring and my and FIs wedding bands came in nice boxes. The e-ring box is beautiful, soft leather and very well constructed, the only problem is that it is laughably large (about 4.5″ square and 2.5″ tall when it is closed)!

I’m thinking about asking the place where we bought our other rings if they would sell me a small box for pictures (and practicality!) so it matches the boxes our other rings are in, which are also nice:

Reading the first post here i was moved to answer – yes! I totally agree! Ring boxes generally are rubbish – fake leather or plastic covered cardboard. So, being a boxmaker I decided I could offer something better.Have a look at my website – http://www.finehardwoodboxes.com . Peter

My e-ring from a local jeweler came in a pretty standard dark green velvet ring box but I don’t really use it other then if I’m traveling.

A family friend gave me a nice waterford crystal ring holder I keep next to my kitchen sink. And after we ordered my ring I was visiting my Maid/Matron of Honor and we took her kids to a paint your own pottery store. I picked out a small heart box, painted it in some of my favorite colors with our initials inside to use as a ring holder. This sits next to my bathroom sink. I always place my ring in one of those to places.
