Cocktail rings: what are they

How can we describe a cocktail ring: a jewel able to amaze? An emblem of hope and freedom? But what cocktail rings really are and what are their origins? I'll tell you. They were born in the 1920s, a century known for its pomp, jazz, and joie de vivre.  It is a historical period full of changes and above all characterized by strong tensions. These are the years in which women get rid of corsets and long dresses, start wearing pants and short skirts: the “Flappers” are born, a symbolic movement for female emancipation. The cocktail itself, as we understand it today, was born in those years. At that time, since the smuggled alcohol was of poor quality, to make it drinkable it was mixed with other ingredients, so that it took on a better flavor and aroma. And from the unpredictable and singular union between the clandestine context fueled by prohibition and the wave of revolutionary energy of the flappers, the definition of cocktail ring was born, a ring that will reach its peak of success only in the 1950s, but which today after a century is back in big trend.

Cocktail rings: the features of the symbol of female independence

Also known by the English term "Cocktail ring", cocktail rings were designed and subsequently created to make the main gem stand out. Often worn alone because they are quite opulent, their main feature is that they are large enough to be noticed even from a few meters away. Symbol of seduction at first sight. What characterizes this jewel is its large precious and semi-precious stone. In fact, its beauty is given by the gem that is set in the ring, usually worn in the right hand like a wedding ring. But how can you combine a cocktail ring for a special evening? How should it be worn to bring out feminine beauty? Let's find out now, what combinations can be made so as not to let our cocktail ring go unnoticed.

How to match or wear cocktail rings

One piece of advice I feel like giving you is to wear the cocktail ring alone, because thanks to its size it draws all the attention to yourself. Generally women who wear this jewel wear it on their right hand, but to make it more current and modern today it is very chic also worn as a pinky ring. However, if you want to accompany your cocktail ring with another jewel, I suggest you wear a long necklace, just like in the twenties, but not too flashy. To create a perfect match, the ideal would be to wear earrings with stones that recall your ring, in case you don't have them, even simple light points are fine. In short, from what we can understand cocktail rings are trendy jewels and it is not difficult to understand why they are a trend. Cocktail rings, if combined well, can be a very elegant jewel to wear for a special evening.
