Cocktail Rings, A Necessity

Personally I find cocktail rings to be a necessity, not just for drinking, but for the everyday purposes of going about the usual stuff and keeping an eye on one’s hands whilst doing so. It is good to have some weight and glitter hanging off the end of your arms, whatever the time of day and whatever circumstances you have found yourself in.

But to find a good cocktail ring is not easy.

There is very little that I dislike more than modern high-street costume rings. They draw you in with their snazzy and sparkling designs then, after less than a day’s wear, the thin layer of gold finishing has worn away and you are left with an ugly dark copper band and green stains on your fingers. Then, because you have bought into a currently mass-produced product, you look around and see more women flashing the exact same design, with the exact same wear, and the same green stains.

For this reason I have long stuck to only sterling silver or gold, struggling to find or afford anything big or extravagant enough in these metals to fit my requirements. That is until recently coming across various vintage costume rings which are beginning to change my mind…

The designs are much more unusual, and my tests so far show them to leave far fewer base metal marks on fingers. The construction is of a higher and more detailed quality, stones are usually glass rather than plastic, and any gold-plating is often thicker than I have encountered with modern pieces.

If your fingers are feeling a little underweight and dull, here are some excellent cocktail rings available for purchase in my SHOP
