Aside from kicking off a lifetime of bliss, the perfect proposal is basically all about the ring. But how that ring is presented—and how to stow it safely and beautifully once it’s received—often goes unconsidered. As the fine folks over at The Mrs. Box have pointed out, “A ring box is like the wedding dress for your ring.” We’re inclined to agree. Whether you’re looking for the perfect proposal vessel, a stylish ring box to match your wedding theme, or an heirloom-quality keepsake to remember the moment for years to come, here are a few engagement ring boxes to which you’ll definitely want to say “I do.”
Combining the best of contemporary aesthetics and natural inspiration, custom engagement ring boxes from ABJ Glassworks are handmade, eco-friendly, and come in a variety of unique shapes and display-worthy designs.
The Mrs. Box
From proposal to the wedding ceremony and beyond, The Mrs. Box is a infuses high quality engagement ring boxes with personalized style. We love the array of colors (they have over 34), and monogramming offers the perfect finishing touch.
Most proposal stories entail a description of “the look on her face,” but this ring cam actually records it. Each box is outfitted with a tiny, spy-style camera to capture the reaction from the ring’s POV.
Geode Ring Box
Who says the only gem involved in the proposal has to be on the ring? This unique geode ring box is truly one of a kind and is the perfect choice for anyone who loves natural beauty.
Slim Proposal Box
If your main goal is to showcase the ring itself, there’s no harm in going full on minimalist. This simple black ring box is uncomplicated, unbranded, and provides a simple backdrop (or storage option) for your ring. What really makes this box unique is its slim design that makes it easier to keep hidden prior to the proposal.
Wooden Ring Box
To complement the proposal, this handmade wooden ring box is a natural, minimal alternative to the typical little black box. It can also be kept as an heirloom box to store jewelry after the proposal.
