Placeholder engagement ring

Beautifully presented in its handcrafted wooden box, our sterling silver placeholder engagement ring is ideal for a surprise proposal. This token is to be offered to your partner as a pledge for an engagement ring when you pop the question. After the proposal, you and your partner can choose the perfect ring together. Purchased with the chain, this keepsake of your engagement can easily be turned into a meaningful pendant.


If you are planning a surprise proposal, choosing a placeholder engagement ring is the ideal solution. It will allow you to focus on making the proposal special without having to worry about all the things you should consider before you invest in an engagement ring.

After the proposal, you can shop for a ring together or even better, design a ring together using our bespoke service. This way you are sure that your partner will love the ring but also that buy the correct size.

If you choose to go for a bespoke ring, you and your partner will be invited to the studio (in person or via video call) for a free design consultation with Julie. And we will design a unique ring together. To find out more about our bespoke service visit our bespoke page here.

This placeholder is not intended to be worn as a ring, but as a pendant. It is fitted with a loop at the back to allow a chain to go through and therefore can easily be transformed into a pendant after the proposal. Please note you can buy this piece with or without the sterling silver trace chain.

Your token can be personalised by adding an engraved message to the front or to the back of the piece. To add an engraved message, please see our engraving options here.  But please allow an extra 2 to 3 weeks for your piece to be engraved.
