Cocktail rings emerged during the hedonistic prohibition era 1920s, when speakeasy drinking dens became a magnet for socialising and illicit drinking. They are inextricably linked to a sense of fun. The dress code was decadent and glamorous, and the jewellery was designed to match. The bigger the better, and the more colourful the ring, the more colourful the character. They are meant to be noticed. This is statement jewellery at its best. This gemstone and gold cocktail ring is a perfect example of how they continue to be aspirational and relevant.
Cocktail rings were historically considered occasional wear, which does them a disservice. More recently, they have been loved and worn day and night, as they should. A bold ring makes a statement- so it can be just as effective with a pair of jeans as with an evening gown. It just comes down to attitude, which they have in spades.
The world of cocktails is not confined to drinks- it’s a lifestyle. An appreciation of a well constructed aperitif, a striking dress, statement jewellery and sparkling conversation with friends. An appreciation of glamorous simplicity.
A fresh colour palette, this spectacular 4.23ct cushion cut prasiolite (green quartz) cocktail ring is set with pink and green tourmalines, tsavorite garnets, pink sapphires and diamonds on the shoulders of the shank, set in 18ct rose gold. The rose gold is an inspired choice as it makes the green and pink colour scheme sing.
These rings are made to order and completely customisable. The choice of colours is as personal as you are, and limited only by the availability of stones and budget. If you don’t see a colour palette which resonates with you, no problem. Get in touch with an enquiry, or to schedule an online consultation to discuss your ideas.
