Cocktail rings are truly one of a kind treasures that were created by master jewelers decades ago (in some instances hundreds of years ago). You can discern an estate dinner, or vintage cocktail ring, by noticing its large size containing a center diamond, usually with smaller diamonds, or gemstones, surrounding. These gorgeous rings were worn to attract attention, show wealth, and exude glamour.
The Significance of Cocktail Rings
Cocktail rings roared into fashion during the 1920s, when they became the must-have accessory for the new styles of bobbed hair, miniskirts, long strands of pearls, and other flapper styles. They were meant to dazzle then, catching the light with every gesture, whether the wearer was drinking, eating, or dancing one of the new dance crazes. On your hand, they’ll still dazzle.
