"Live From Las Vegas: 15 Cocktail Rings to See at the Jewelry Shows" blog article.
May 30, 2014, by Jennifer Heebner.
The little cocktail ring has a lot to say about your color choices and style aesthetic, but its most important message is that it’s just here to have a good time. It’s not the flowery and bright engagement ring that lets others know you’re about to embark on a meaningful life journey of love or the low-profile wedding band that signifies you’re officially off the market. And the cocktail ring definitely isn’t one of those hipster-chic over-the-knuckle numbers or midi rings that lets others know you like to express yourself differently (even if nobody can figure out exactly what you’re trying to say). But the perky cocktail ring, with a typically bulbous gemstone center often perched on fingers opposite the wedding-ring hand, has no raison d’être or working papers; it exists only to offer silent, stylish support to the hand doing the heavy lifting during happy hour.
Ring in silver with palladium and rhodium plating, hand-painted enamel, a 3 ct. peridot, and a white topaz accent from Drukker Designs.
