Woodsbury was created in 2015 by two designers who were searching for something better. Based on the adage that if you can’t find what you want, you might have to make it yourself, we decided to create an engagement box that would help reinvent the timeless tradition of proposing. We focused on slimming down the traditional ring box and creating something that was as special as the ring itself. A box that would add an element of suprise and become a keepsake to make the memories of the day last forever.
After multiple drawings and tests using different materials and shapes the first Woodsbury engagement box was created. We had experience making high quality musical instruments and furniture from timber so decided to make each box ourselves. Our design allowed us customise each box to suit the customer's ring, creating a much thinner profile than any other boxes on the market. Our boxes are still made this way, by hand, in our workshop in Sydney.
