Today we'll be reviewing the Jojuno Blessing Buddha Ring Holder Ceramic Jewelry Dish Tray Plate Perfect Place to Hold Rings.
Let’s see if it lives up to the hype.
- Large enough to hold a lot of jewelry
- Great value for the price
- Can be set up anywhere due to its large size
- Suitable for Buddhists (if you’re into that)
- Very lightweight so it can be easily attached to the wall
- Sits on a beautiful golden Buddha
- Looks great as a centerpiece in any room in your house
- Does not take up much space
- Well-made ceramic design
- Easy to clean
- A bit heavy when fully loaded
- Works best on flat surfaces
- The ceramic is somewhat soft and a bit fragile
- Slight negative association in the West for Buddhas
- Might need to buy air freshener for it
I wouldn't consider the Jojuno Golden Buddha Ring Holder to be a stand-alone jewelry tray but more of a portable storage unit. Normally I'm a big fan when manufacturers provide multiple serving options for the same item, but this is a bit limiting and seems a bit superfluous. For this reason, I'm giving Jojuno the bird and giving the Jojuno Golden Buddha Ring Holder a five-chirp rating instead of the standard four-chirp rating.
The Jojuno ring holder comes standing tall and proud in a 12" x 12" geometric tiles pattern with the flanking walls of the tray being comprised of a circular tile and a rectangular tile. This is quite effective at holding the rings and ornaments and also provides a bit of splash-proof brand protection along the base and edges.
These edge walls are also heavily decorated with a large golden Buddha figure and a very nice large circular blue-banded gold paint.
The large Buddha is in a seated position and has a small incense pot (or maybe an incense holder) and a peace lily situated in front of him.
The tray itself is made from a ceramic material and is non-porous and durable, however, it is not polished, so it will have a rough, natural finish which I personally like.
There are four non-skid feet on the bottom of the tray which keep it from sliding and tipping when on your dressers and table.
I like the design a lot, but it doesn't really work for me. I think it's a very good product for its intended market, but I had a little problem when trying to use it.
I have small hands and it was very difficult to get the rings over the lips of the tray, without them sliding down or turning sideways. This is a small issue, but is one that better fits my frame and does make me wonder about some new designs that better fit smaller hands.
It's a beautiful design, no doubt about that, but for me, it's a beautiful design that will eventually end up on "layers of junk in the closet."
