Ring in Spring!

Big, bold cocktail rings. Okay, has enough been said about them? Because I can’t resist! Every magazine that I open – from fashion glossies like InStyle to the jewelry trades like Modern Jeweler – are shouting about the return of the cocktail ring.

According to “Wise Geek” the cocktail ring became popular to wear during Prohibition in the 1920’s at illegal cocktail parties. Not only was the wearer drinking, they were flaunting it with style.

Thankfully, today we don’t need to attend a cocktail party in order to enjoy these gorgeous statement pieces. Large and usually colorful, cocktail rings work equally well with a pair of skinny jeans, tank and killer stilettos on the weekends as they do with a conservative suit for work. Because they are so noticeable, cocktail rings instantly update last year’s styles – a real plus for fashionistas in this challenging economy. This is one trend I am jumping on!
