A Plethora of Ring Bowl Options

There is a plethora of ring bowl options out there.  So many that at times it was hard to sift through them all.  The one I have seen a lot is by Paloma's Nest.

I love how you can hang these on your Christmas tree as an ornament after the wedding but it just seemed a little too classic to go with our rustic-chic wedding.  We did think about making a ring holder out of one of our favorite books:

But being the uber book lover I am, I just couldn't bring myself to cut apart one of my babies. The thought of it just sends cold shivers down my spine.  

Then by chance, while stumbling around Google images, I found this:

Trying to keep with our rustic-chic travel theme we have steered clear of things that were "beachy" but this bowl was so beautiful we decided that it might not be such a bad idea to integrate a single beach item into the wedding.  So we opened up our searches to shell ring holders and found these:

We were head over heels for the simplicity and chic feel of the last one.  Thankful I found Mag Artsy Crafty Too on Etsy.  She had individual listings (with photos) of all her hand polished shells.  What really sealed the purchase for me was knowing that all her shells were bought directly from sources where the shells are considered trash. In a way it mades me feel like we are recycling. Here is the lion's paw shell I bought:

It is about 4.5 inches big and pefectly polished.  I couldn't have asked for better.  

I would love to hear which one of the thousand options out there you chose for a ring holder!
