I'm not going to admit how many times I've stared at this incredible ring today alone. Gorgeous ring boxes deserve to be filled with equally stunning rings, and this beauty from Ken & Dana Design absolutely fits the bill. How jaw-dropping is that twisted gold band?

You might notice a trend with velvet boxes, but how can we resist? They add the perfect element of vintage sophistication, harkening back to more glamorous eras in our past. The contrast of the tan and purple fabrics here is a total winner.

You don't have to rely on tradition, of course. So many different items can be used to store your baubles, and using an antique wooden box is a great way to present the rings on the wedding day. As an added bonus, the larger box makes it easier for ring bearers to hold onto as they walk down the aisle.

Ring: KALAN by Suzanne Kalan

There's no reason why diamonds have to be the norm for engagement rings. This ring from Suzanne Kalan uses a topaz centre stone surrounded by white sapphires and the result is just as gorgeous as ever. A pavé band is the perfect accent to top off the design.

Here's another take on  antique boxes - using a vintage piece to display your rings. We love the idea of using family heirlooms that can be passed down for generations to come, which is not only nostalgic but also eco-friendly.

We've always loved the ideas of using a hollowed out book to display your wedding bands, and the idea of tucking in your vows as library checkout cards is too cute to resist.

This really solidifies our belief that vintage ring boxes are about as good as it gets. We love Art Deco ring boxes with velvety goodness. They're not easy to come by, so hold onto any you find. Most will come with a story of their own (one of our favourite aspects), but you can start all over with your own love stories.
