Cocktail Rings

Nearly any oversized ladies' ring may be termed "cocktail". Most commonly featuring a large coloured centre stone, they can also be known as a cluster, dinner, or dress ring and come under the costume jewellery category.

Green cocktail ring

Large natural 2.50ct (10.38 mm. x 8.12 mm) emerald with luxurious jungle green colour and of Columbian origin.

According to The Examiner, historically they can be linked with the Speakeasy culture of 1930s America, worn by ladies to signify they were flouting the prohibition laws, i.e. cocktail glass in hand and cocktail ring on finger. They have since become a symbol of status and high fashion, and a permanent fixture on the red carpet, a favourite with stars such as Emma Stone, Paris Hilton and Beyonce making a bold, glamourous statement.

Celebrities with cocktail rings

But they are not only for the rich and famous and formal wear, show-stopping imitations can be bought on the high street and seen in everyday wear.

The recent popularity of the vintage look and up-cycling has also inspired the trend and seen younger generations raiding their Grandmothers' costume jewellery for forgotten treasures.
