A Lasting Moment

A beautiful and unique alternative to the traditional ring bearer's pillow, this elegant ceramic dish will add the perfect touch to a wedding ceremony and provide a lasting memento of that special day.

Hand stamped in the center of the Ring Bearer BowlTM are the timeless words "To Have & To Hold", taken from the traditional wedding vows. Each shallow bowl has two small holes at the top for securing the rings with the included silk cord, which can also be replaced with a different colored ribbon to match the wedding's decor.

After the ceremony, the bowl can be displayed on the wall along with the couple's wedding photos, passed along through generations of family weddings or used daily as a ring dish and a reminder of your special day. Handmade by the Texas studio, Paloma's Nest.

Rings sold separately.

Caroline Colom Vasquez

Caroline Colom Vasquez is an artist and designer living in the vibrant city of Austin, Texas. Her studio is dedicated to creating handcrafted modern heirlooms--pieces for the home and for the heart.

Caroline's collection of bowls, tiles, ornaments and decorative pieces are intended to last for generations, and are thus crafted of the finest natural materials available, including porcelain and clay, wood, paper and cloth.

The inspiration lies in the purity of the materials used, and the idea that something so simple can be so bold.

Caroline strives to create items of meaning and purpose from these materials, while leaving the characteristics true. By adding text to the designs, written ideas, feelings and daydreams are given a place to rest. When names and dates are added, the designs take on special meaning for the recipient and instantly become a Modern Heirloom, cherished for years to come.

She is most known for the conception of the Ring Bearer Bowl, a design Caroline debuted to much international acclaim in 2007. This tiny ceramic dish is intended to replace the ring pillow in a wedding celebration, and is creating a new tradition in ceremonies around the world. The Ring Bearer Bowl, which also doubles as a holiday decoration or ring dish in the home, has created a new and lasting standard in the modern wedding ceremony, and a new form of a family heirloom.

All of Caroline's pieces are hand cut, freeform, with no pattern, and every single tiny letter is hand stamped, one by one. This gives each piece its own special variation in the size, shape and layout of the text.

Recycled, up-cycled and biodegradable products are a huge part of Caroline's work. Her studio is powered 100% by renewable wind energy, minimizing the footprint left behind by the production of these beautiful heirloom pieces.

Great Idea... not worth the price

Pros

  • Unique

Cons

  • Easily replicated
  • Too Expensive
  • Too simple

Best Uses

  • Bridal shower gift

Comments about RING BEARER BOWL:

I think this concept of a wedding bowl to carry the rings is a great idea. However, it is certainly not worth the price as it just about fits in the palm of my hand and could be easily replicated for half the cost. I am disappointed with the quality for the cost.

Comments about RING BEARER BOWL:

Our ringbearer was so excited to be a part of our wedding and when we showed him this unique bowl that he would carry he loved it. It is so much more beautiful than an old fashioned pillow and I love that we can use it over and over again as the ring bowl. Great idea, simple but beauitful. It was the perfect addition to our ceremony.

      Comments about RING BEARER BOWL:

      My fiance and I decided to use this unique bowl as a ring bearer bowl instead of the traditional pillow. It's fragile so be careful if your ring bearer is young. It's beautiful and smooth. We will probably frame it or use it to hold our wedding bands.

        Comments about RING BEARER BOWL:

        I bought this bowl for my wedding in October. I was looking for an alternative to the traditional pillow and I found it with this piece. My ring bearer is 3 so I am thinking this might be fragile for to handle with out MAJOR coaching so if you are looking for durability, this is not it. After wedding, I plan to use is a place for my rings at night. All in all, it was worth it.

        Service and delivery comments:

        VERY well packaged! Adorable wrapping! Fast shipment.

        Comments about RING BEARER BOWL:

        I thought this would make a lovely engagement gift. It is very plain with ordinary string. I changed it to a burgundy, thin ribbon to add a bit to the look. Can barely see the words.
