It is the ideal accessory to make any classic or simple look stand out . I feel it is a must in all womens wardrobes and you can never have too many. Although one might assume the word “cocktail ring ” is named so because ladies wear them to dress up and go out to “cocktail parties”, there is a little more history behind this expression.
As stated in Nina Garcia’s book A GUIDE TO THE PIECES EVERY STYLISH WOMEN MUST OWN: THE ONE HUNDRED
“The term ” cocktail ring” emerged during Prohibition, when women would wear large, bold rings to illegal cocktail parties. A women would flit her hand around, drawing attention to the bauble to let you know that not only was she drinking illegally, she was drinking with style.”
There is no need to be scared off by the percieved cost of these stylish embellishments, they are available in all price ranges. With a little luck and persistence you too can find the perfect “cocktail ring” for any occasion.
