Most of us love and own many rings. This is a piece of jewellery that we usually own in abundance. Lots of rings in gold or diamond, some glittery, some in band form and now a days many artificial ones too. Not that these artificial rings are any cheap. These come in a variety of price range. Then comes those rings that we call as Cocktail Rings. Now what is a Cocktail ring!! So here comes the description –
An oversized ladies’ ring with a large center stone often surrounded by tiny stones. Nearly any oversized ladies’ ring may be termed “cocktail”. This is the most common type of costume jewellery ring and is also known as a cluster ring and dinner ring.
Cocktail rings come in a variety of materials like semi precious stones such as amethyst, aquamarine, ruby, pink sapphire and many other materials. And the best thing about them is that they provide all the flash without burning a hole in your pocket. Normally, these rings have a big coloured stone in the center but now, there are many variants available. Cocktail rings definitely add spice to our accessories wardrobe but at a much cheaper price than the diamonds. Isn’t it great !!
How to wear Cocktail Rings –
During the Prohibition in the US women often wore these rings at illegal cocktail parties, where they flaunted the fact that the wearer was drinking illegally, and was doing it with style. Nowadays cocktail rings can be worn to many different types of occasions or even as part of a casual outfit. There’s no one set style for a cocktail ring, but many have a large, centered imitation jewel.
There’s two types of cocktail rings: one type has made from semi-precious stones like Ruby, Citrine, Aquamarine and Amethyst and those that are made of less expensive stones like Cubic Zirconia, Crystal and Blue Topaz.
Now, for wearing them, these are somewhat big and flashy, so, according to me, these should be kept for parties and special occasions only. But, if you are bold enough and dare to be flashy, then, you can opt for these as much as you want J
