sciencefig :  I’m afraid I don’t have any genius solutions to your problem but wanted to comment to say that ring is amazing!

My fiance hid the ring at his mum’s for 2 months and I was clueless (but she only lives two floors below us so it was always close by) so I like that as an idea. Either way good luck! And please keep us updated ^_^

Very cool ring. I will have to look up that designer.

I kept the ring at work before proposing. However, I have my own office, so that was easier and safer for me than for some.

It was more of a challenge for me keeping it hidden for several weeks on a trip abroad, since my now-fiancée wanted to share luggage and pack everything herself . Luckily we had outdoor gear I could stash it in, as she wouldn’t mess with my equipment. Are you the same shoe size? If not, I’d stick it in a shoe. Do you have things you don’t share, like a travel toiletries bag that’s yours alone?

A floss container can work too. You can remove the top, stash things inside, and close the top again. I used to do this when I was a kid and wanted to be a spy  🙂  Make sure to use one at the back of the supplies, that he won’t accidentally throw out!

If there’s no one you’d leave it with, I second a safety deposit box at the bank.

Love the ring! What about somewhere in the kitchen no one usually ever looks.. then you could put it in an envelope and maybe write a note saying something silly like “oh my, despite my best efforts you still found the ring, will you marry me?” could be funny

Wow! That is GORGEOUS! My husband actually hid the ring in a pair of mud boots I rarely wear, in my own truck. He unbelievably had me carrying around my ring for a month and I didn’t even know it… Good luck finding a spot, but maybe something like that, that he never uses?

Oh.  That ring.  Oh wow.  I’ve never seen anything like that.  You should just propose RIGHT NOW so he can get on with wearing that amazing piece of art.

I wouldn’t put it in anything that could get thrown out or donated to charity.  I’d either remove it from the box and tape it to the underside of some furniture or rent a safe deposit box (which is a good thing in general for important documents anyway).

Nice ring! Maybe in one of your shoes?

Got any books he isn’t likely to read? You could cut a hollow in the pages of one and stash it in there.
