How do you feel about engagement rings and ring dishes? As a wedding photographer I see a ton of rings. Like 50 or so every year! It’s seriously one of my favorite parts of my job! Each ring has so much personality and charm, it really feels like you can tell a bit about each bride, and their personality, because of their rings!
I love to know who chose the ring! It’s so evenly split too, about half of my brides knew the proposal was coming, and chose their ring! And about half of my brides had no idea! I personally chose my own ring because I am SO picky about my jewelry, but my favorite are the stories about the brides who didn’t have any idea!
Guys are smart y’all. And Pinterest is the best! I had a groom once custom design his fiance’s ring. He went on her Pinterest board and combined a bunch of different things that she had saved until she had a one of a kind ring. Bonus points – he knew her favorite metal is rose gold, so that’s what he had it set in. She was shocked. And of course she is in love with her ring! Y’all that is next level magic.
Obviously you want to take great care of your ring! You should take your ring off when you shower, clean, and even sleep to make sure it stays in tip-top shape! Which means one of my favorite gifts for newly engaged couples are ring dishes! And I am a huge fan of supporting local businesses. Since I’ve worked with a few amazing self-employed ring dish designers I want to highlight them! To see some more of my favorites click here.
These dishes are made by the sweetest woman named Yudith, her shop is House and Honey, and each one has such beautiful attention to detail! Each dish is unique and individual because each one is made by hand! These are just a few of my favorites!
