ASK A WEDDING VENDOR: THE NOVA BOXES
The Nova Boxes are a Canadian company, crafting heirloom velvet ring boxes inspired by the exquisite coast of the Atlantic. These jewelry boxes come in many beautiful shapes and stunning, luxurious colours!
What inspired your to create The Nova Boxes?
As we have worked directly in the wedding industry, we saw the need to bring Velvet Ring Boxes to Canada! We had seen countless Brides & Vendors having to purchase from outside of Canada, and we thought, how can we bring velvet ring boxes to Canada? And just like that, The Nova Jewelry Boxes were born.
Can you tell us about choosing the names and styles?
We knew we wanted to offer ring boxes that truly felt inspired by the beauty of the Coast of the Atlantic & Beyond. We also knew we wanted to offer a quality product that had unique elements of design. Through much time and hard work, we were able to produce our collections of Nova Boxes, all colors and names inspired by Locations that are dear to our hearts here in Canada.
Weather you are a bride, a wedding vendor, or simply a lover of local maritime businesses, when a Nova Box graces your hands, or holds your precious rings,
We hope you can feel a glimmer of Canadian Beauty before your eyes.
Are the boxes customizable?
Yes, boxes can be personalised with our Gold Foil Monogram Process!
What does your creative process look like?
First we carefully select high quality velvets that speak to colors or themes inspired by some of our most favourite canadian landscapes. After which we decide on shapes & sizes based on the desires of most of our bride & grooms. We then curate these boxes into "Collections". We currently offer 3 "Collections"; Oval, Square & Round Nova Boxes.
Do you have a personal favourite?
Our personal Favourite is the Mayflower. She is delicate, petite and simply the most astonishing shade of sage green. A True Stunner.

We love that you run this business as a couple! What's it like working alongside your better half?
We certainly have our moments! Overall though, we absolutely love it. Gives up time together and we both find so much joy in pushing ourselves creatively. We both have very different strengths and combined, we make a great team!
What has been your biggest challenge?
Truly, our biggest challenge has been getting in front of our ideal customers! It's been particularly difficult as we launch as Covid-19 began! We have had 2 wedding seasons that have been completely affected by this pandemic making it a true marketing challenge!
How has your business adapted during the pandemic?
We have really had to adapt to the fact that the wedding "seasons" are not as they used to be. As most wedding related businesses, it almost feels like things can be "on hold", but we are pushing through and not letting that deter us from bringing joy to engaged couples everywhere.
