31 Jul Raise Your Glass for the Cocktail Ring
I love rings.
And while I love wearing my wedding ring (left-hand ring), there’s something special about a larger-than-life cocktail ring (right-hand ring) to make a statement! And that statement is, “Hey, look at my delicious cocktail, oh and my ring, too”!
Generally speaking, cocktail rings are sparkly statement jewelry pieces we wear at social events, pairing perfectly with your favorite drink and your favorite LBD! The cocktail ring originated during the prohibition era, and they were as essential and glamorous as the cocktails themselves. Cocktails were a status symbol, and so were your rings! The flashier, the better.
In today’s happy hour, you may not always notice cocktail rings; however, they never go out of style. They do, nevertheless, become more popular during the holidays! With celebratory events and glasses clinking and shimmering lights, it’s no wonder I get inspired to wear my vintage style cocktail ring.
