I''ve been hanging on to mine, but really don''t use them at all. I don''t think I''ll ever want to get rid of them!

Yes...but I only use them on the rare occasion I need to store my rings for awhile...like when I was preggo and they didn''t fit.

The box from my original set was tossed. It wasn''t very nice, and the one that came from Pearlmans was nicer than my original! I don''t use them often though. Only if I''m traveling.

I voted for the 1st option but really I am between option 1 & 2.

I have my wedding ring box (it is a his & hers) but if I lost it I would not cry. That said I would not throw it out consciously.

This from the woman who ''lost'' her wedding dress
. As you know I moved 5+ times in the last 2 years and it has simply vanished into thin air.

Poof!

I do, and it's a pretty nice little box! I use it as a place to put my ring while I'm traveling. If I have to stash it somewhere I like to have a box to put it in.

ETA: I'm not necessarily sentimental about it ... if I lost it I would probably just ask the jeweler for another one or find another storage solution.

My rings are either in the box or on my ring holder. Several years ago, I lost my diamond studs. I have no idea what happened to them. They could have been stolen. I have only two places for the rings, which saves me no end of anxiety based upon previous experience

I do! (Not that I''m married yet...) but I''m going to save them forever!


The engagement ring box is really nice, and I put one of my mom''s rings in there, and I also had my Tiffs stacking band in there because it''s a normal size ring box, but opens opposite, so it can hold onto 2 rings next to each other. I think it''s way cooler than the regular one that only holds one ring.

As for the wedding rings...we shall see.

Well, we''re not officially engaged yet, but the ring is in its original box...circa 1915! It was his great grandmother''s engagement ring.

I almost never use mine, but I think I''ll just hand onto them for sentimental reasons.

LP, that box is so awesome! What a treasure.

Yes, I do still have the box that my e-ring came in. It is a white box that has a very slight pink tint to it thanks to the red pocket that my DH had it hidden in

I do--for both the diamond and its "temp" setting and the box the completed setting came in. Its what I stick them in when I am not wearing them.

We got engaged in a restaurant, so I have the business card from the restaurant in with the ring box.

I still have mine...it has a tiny little light in it, so that when you open it up (even in the dark) you can still see the ring. I don''t use it since I prefer my traditional ring holder (engagement gift from best friend) but I''ll always keep it safely with me.

My e-ring box was stolen during our move from NYC to CA. We rented rented an RV to see Yellowstone, and on the day we were to return the RV, someone broke in, and stole DH''s laptop bag, which had the box in it. Luckily, halfway into the trip, I started to really miss looking at my ring, and put it back on. Thank goodness, because even though I was upset about the box, I would have been devastated about the ring!

Well, I''m not sentimental in general, but I do keep and treasure the box my engagement ring came in. I store my rings in it every night, next to the bed.

not only do I have the original box, but I have it all wrapped up in the way it was presented to me. The wrapping paper looks like it''s 100 years old because D carried the ring around in his pocket every day for 3 months.

I do have mine, but I don''t use them anymore. I take my rings off every night, and when we first got engaged, I put my engagement ring in the WF box for safe keeping. I stopped doing that a while ago, but I can''t get myself to throw away the box. It''s not that I''m overly sentimental about the box -- I''m just a pack rat of sorts.

I have the original box that the ring came in, and the turtle box that he proposed with. I may one day get rid of the original box, but i will never part with the turtle box. Too sentimental for me.
