Beautiful Vintage Velvet Ring Boxes from The Mrs Box
The heirloom vintage velvet ring boxes from The Mrs Box are a must see for any vintage loving bride-to-be (or romantic beau planning a proposal) – and will be topping my Christmas wish list this year too!
I am so completely smitten with these precious little parcels – I want one in EVERY colour! The creation of the fabulous Summer Watkins (the lady behind Grey Likes Weddings) The Mrs Box stems from a firm belief that ring boxes shouldn’t be boring, but elegant and befittingly beautiful – after all these boxes aren’t just functional, they are tiny little harbingers of joy! And so, with a love of colour and knowing just what we ladies want, Summer decided to bring back some old world style and luxury to the neglected old ring box. “Taking inspiration from the petite boxes of the early 1900s, we set out to bring back an heirloom that had fallen to the wayside.”
Oh and if you are swooning over the sparklers as much as you are the boxes, you might want to know that all the engagement rings in this shoot are from online vintage jewellers Trumpet & Horn. And if a particular one has caught your eye, you will find all of them below – just click on the ring to be taken straight to it on their website …..
3 years in the making these delightful little boxes were an absolute labour of love – but SO worth it! Don’t you think? Much of Summer’s time was spent scouring the world for the prettiest, most luxurious materials to create the boxes from – and in literally a rainbow of colours, so that you can choose a hue that suits you. “Quality textiles are harder and harder to come by these days, so it’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance that we were able to make our first collection out of the finest quality pre-war vintage French velvet. Our materials come from mills that are no longer in existence!” So that’s what they mean when they sat limited edition – literally, once they’re gone, they’re gone!
And just when you thought they couldn’t get any more perfect, Summer and the Mrs Box team come up with the idea of the perfect way to personalise them! “In order to make The Mrs. Box even more heirloom-worthy, the idea struck us to offer custom monograms. We were lucky enough to find a vintage hot stamp press machine which allows us to imprint your initial using heat and gold foil. Each lid is embossed one by one with custom letters made especially for our velvet.”
Ladies, you know you need one (or all of them) for your vintage engagement and cocktail rings! They are available to pre-order NOW, so head over to www.themrsbox.com to choose one for yourself, and be quick because they’re not going to be about for long! I’m off to buy my fave, The Antoinette…..
…….although, I do worry she might get lonely so I might have to get The Havana too!
