My husband and I had our wedding bands engraved with lines from the [i carry your heart] poem, so when I saw this ring bowl a few weeks before our wedding, I knew it would be an exquisite detail to add to our beautiful wedding day. On the day, we used it to hold our wedding rings during the ceremony. Now that we're married, it sits on my vanity table, a lovely reminder of that day.
I learned close the big day that I'd be reading ee cummings' poem "i carry your heart" at my sister's wedding. I had ordered a custom Paloma's Nest bowl for my own wedding but there wasn't time to do that. However, this bowl fit the bill perfectly. Uncommon Goods provided a quick shipping option and it was delivered 2 days ahead of the wedding. My sister, in the flurry of activity, forgot to open it until her wedding morning but that was good timing anyway. She loved it and now their rings can sit beside each other whenever they remove them. It's a good product- delicate but not really fragile (that is to say, don't drop it, but bumping it or moving it around isn't going to damage it).
The bowl was the exact size as listed on the website and is so pretty. I love it because I've always loved this poem and it will be read at my wedding in August, so this was perfect for my wedding and will help add a unique element to make it our own. My ring bearer is 4 years old so he'll be able to carry it down the aisle. The best part is after my wedding I'll use it on my vanity to hold my rings and it will remain a special keepsake!
The gift was well received by the recipient. She loved it.
This is a beautiful (and unique) replacement for the ring bearer's pillow. While I do not like the separate heart that comes with it - as I like the simplicity of the line from the ee cummings' poem on the plate - it is precious and crafted quite nicely. I would also call it a plate not a bowl. The best part of this item is when the wedding is over, you can put the small plate on your dresser to hold your rings. On one final note, for those complaining about the size, dimensions are listed.
Very meaningful gift in my case. Her exact words were "this is the best gift that i have ever received". That is saying a lot considering all of the jewelry she has been given.
I gave this to my newly-engaged daughter where she could put her ring when she was doing dishes, bathing, or other chores around the house. She was THRILLED with it, especially it's uniqueness.
I read this poem at my wedding 33 years ago and just love this bowl. It sits on my dresser and serves as a reminder of a wonderful day!
