Your engagement ring and wedding band are probably the two most valuable pieces of jewelry you’ve ever owned; both in sentimental and dollar value. So it makes sense you’d want to keep them in tip-top shape by taking care of them. And though they’re special, sometimes the best thing is to leave them behind. For instance, we recommend removing your engagement ring (and wedding band) when you’re showering, or painting, or cleaning with harsh cleaners. Times like these call for a unique ring holder to keep your sparklers, well, sparkling.
Whether you opt for a small dish to stow your valuables, or a traditional ring holder with a vertical column that holds your rings, it certainly doesn’t have to be boring. We’ve got a collection of creative ring holders to suit your personality, or your décor, if you’d prefer.
From the whimsical to the elegant to the edgy, keep reading to find the unique ring holder for you.
