After a spritz of perfume, the last thing I slip on before dashing out the door is a cocktail ring (or two). It’s like icing on the cupcake! The bigger and bolder the bauble, the better – because let’s face it, dolls - size matters. In the world of cocktail rings, go big or go home.
Hmmm…not exactly what I had in mind, darling…
Now that’s more like it!
Ever wonder how cocktail rings gained their fabulous fame? They first arrived on the social scene during prohibition, party girls. Ladies would wear the jazzy gems to cocktail parties, flitting their hands about, so that others would notice they were drinking illegally - and with style.
Daisy flaunted it at Gatsby’s parties, and today Rachel, Kate, Olivia and Nicole know when wearing these ritzy rings, faking it is just as fashionable. So it doesn’t matter if it’s costume or heirloom, just rock it with confidence, chéries.
Who knows? After a couple cocktails your baubles may look even better. Just like that guy across the room.
Here’s a sampling of some style sparklers:
House of Harlow
Kenneth Jay Lane
Now go rock your rocks like it’s 1920!
