The word on the streets is many marriages will end in failure:
- 41% of first marriages
- 60% of second marriages
- 73% of third marriages
Some of these divorcees are going as far as purchasing a Wedding Ring Coffin and throwing divorce parties with all the bells and whistles!
You read that right. For the low price of $34.95 (plus tax & shipping), you will receive your very own wedding ring coffin made of solid wood with a dark, glossy mahogany finish. It measures in at 6 ¼” long x 2 ¼” wide x 2 3/8” high and is lined with black velvet. The ring insert will snugly hold your ring as you lay it to rest.
Your coffin will also come with an engraved brass plaque with a personalized message written by you or a standard one such as “Six Feet Isn’t Deep Enough” or “I Do…NOT!!” That’s not all. Four metal handles and a split lid is included in the design. It’s your choice whether you prefer an open or closed casket.
Jill Testa, owner and founder of Wedding Ring Coffin, was inspired by her own story. She realized, after 20 years of marriage, the prince she had been kissing was actually a frog. She rid her home of all photographs and memorabilia of her ex-husband, then went as far as smashing her wedding ring with a hammer at the very place the couple first met. That’s when the idea hit Testa. The ring was in need of a final resting place.
Atlanta divorce attorney Melody Richardson has purchased a few coffins as gifts in hopes of helping clients move on. “I just thought they were hysterical,” Richardson stated in an interview with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
So if you have a good sense of humor but are still grieving, a wedding ring coffin may be your ticket to moving on. In the words of Jill Testa, “Bury the past and move on to a new tomorrow!”
