When my sister got engaged, there was a lot to think about and a lot of “looking” to be done. We looked at the engagement ring, and a little bit later we looked for the perfect wedding dress. Then we looked for the right venue, the maid of honor and bridesmaid dresses, food menus and napkins, and we looked again at the engagement ring.
Somewhere amongst all of the looking, it dawned on my aunt that perhaps my sister, in all of her hectic planning and fast traveling, she might, believe it or not, manage to lose somehow that gorgeous engagement ring, if she didn’t have somewhere safe to rest it. So she decided to take care of that by getting her a crystal ring holder. And low-and-behold, she hasn’t lost that ring, yet! Maybe it’s not so much the ring holder that’s kept her from doing that, but it’s still something super cute to look at.
