Q: Who holds the rings when there is no ring bearer?

A: Usually the honor attendants will simply slip the ring on their finger (the maid of honor uses her thumb to hold the groom's ring; the bride's usually fits on the best man's pinky). If you're worried about safety, or a ring getting stuck, have your maid of honor carry it in a little satin bag; the best man can use his jacket or pants pocket (after he checks for holes).
