Unique Engagement Ring Box Pirouettes the Ring Like a Blooming Flower

Clifton Pop-Up Ring Box by Andrew Zo

Marriage proposals can be scary, even if you know that the other person will say yes. How and where you’ll ask is always a factor, as well as where to hide the ring. After all, it’d be tragic if it were discovered beforehand. A slimline engagement ring box called Clifton solves this potential problem. Designed by Andrew Zo, it’s no bigger than the size of a wallet and slides into your pocket with ease. Plus, when you open the Clifton, the ring does more than just appear – it pirouettes into position. This is because a pop-up mechanism is meant to present the ring as if it’s a blooming flower.

Zo is a packaging designer by trade, and he first began developing Clifton as a student at Emily Carr University in Vancouver, Canada. He built a paper-based proof of concept in 2011 and over the past three years has refined it into the leather-bound product that we see today.

Clifton is available for purchase with a pricetag of $90. While that might seem like a lot, consider that the average engagement ring is $2,300; this means that the box only adds 4% onto the total expense. It could be seen as a negligible cost to make a once-in-a-lifetime event even more special.
