The Most Creative and Unique Ring Boxes September 20, 2016 – Posted in: Jewelry Blog
When a ring is bought, it usually comes with a fairly standard presentation box covered with satin, velvet or a similar plain material. Functional, certainly but inspiring? Well, not so much. But did you know that you can up the ante somewhat with a custom – often handmade – ring box on almost any style or subject, and for a price that will probably surprise you?
Here we look at some of the best and unique custom ring boxes you can easily buy online.
Ring Puzzle Box
Wood is becoming increasingly popular for, well, just about anything in this age of eco-conservation and this is shown in the huge number of wooden ring boxes available. It therefore takes something a little different to stand out from the crowd, and this is it.
Puzzle boxes have been made by craftsmen since the 14th century and have been used to carry secrets, provide amusement and to store jewelry. This ring box follows that tradition, with a little thought (but nt too much!) being needed to access the hidden ring compartment. Beautifully crafted and finished, hand built to order and available with custom personalization, this is a real treat indeed!
‘Til Death Do Us Part
If your shared sense of humor is somewhat on the black side, this might be right up your street. Or cemetery.
In the shape of a coffin with room for 2 rings inside, the words “‘Til Death Us Do Part” grace the lid with a boldness that will make sure everyone knows where you stand on the idea of marriage!
Ring Display Box
As the name suggests, this is really more of a display than presentation box, but it does the job beautifully, which makes it worthy of inclusion here.
In the shape of a hexagonal pyramid on a raised base, the ring is hung from a hook descending from the apex, visible to all through the glass panes which make up each side of the structure.
A great way to display your ring!
Concrete Ring Dish
Concrete isn’t the first material that comes to mind when thinking of ring boxes, but when it’s hand sanded and buffed, you get a smoothness that isn’t at all concrete-like.
If you’re a regular reader of our blog, you’ll be aware of the importance of the Art Deco period in ring design. This box is unmistakably inspired by Art Deco and the sharp symmetry it brings and is just that little bit different to most ring boxes.
Wedgwood Trinket Box
England has long been a world center of pottery and ceramics, and one of the biggest names of all is Josiah Wedgwood. Wedgwood pottery is highly prized by collectors and is easily identifiable by its white motif on blue background. Indeed, the shade of blue is so associated with the maker, it is actually called Wedgwood Blue.
This lovely little box is an actual vintage Wedgwood item and is just stunning!
Steampunk Ring Box
Steampunk rocketed into the style conscious of the world a few years ago, and it shows no signs of abating. The demand for steampunk-inspired art is now big business, but it has also been very influential within the world of artisan items such as this ring box.
Although a little less luxurious than many boxes (as you’d expect) the Steampunk Ring Box is certainly different and will appeal to fans of sci-fi everywhere.
Tardis Ring Box
Dr Who is big business in the US. From it’s origins in the early days of the BBC, the show is now a smash worldwide hit and has a huge band of dedicated followers on a scale which rivals the likes of Star Trek in some parts.
This ingenious ring box is modelled on the Tardis, and the roof opens to reveal space to store a single ring. Available in several colors and variations, this solid wood, hand built marvel is a must for all fans of The Doctor everywhere.
Wallet Ring Box
At the beginning of this post, we mentioned that the prices may surprise you. Well, what if we told you that you make a very unusual and attractive ring box yourself for just the cost of the materials?
Well now you can!
Given that ready-made boxes of this type can be expensive to buy, why not have a go at doing it yourself? Let us know how you get on!
