Cocktail rings are the perfect accessory to wear with any outift when you want to make a statement. This staple of glitz and glamour has been a part of our society since prohibition, when women would adorn themselves with these loud statement rings to show off their style. These rings also grew in popularity during the 1940s and 1950s, when cocktail parties were in fashion. Reserved for formal occasions, these rings often consisted of large diamonds and other precious or semi-precious stones. Cocktail rings today are normally made with faux precious stones, but still give your fingers the right amount of sparkle to make a statement. These rings come in a variety of different styles, colors and flair. Here’s a guide to help you find the cocktail ring to suit you.
