Minimalist jewellery has been on trend for years, with simple and plain pieces taking the forefront of the fashion world. However, this may be coming to an end with the comeback of statement jewellery, in particular, cocktail rings.
Cocktail rings have been essential on the party scene since the 1930s where the term was first used due to the large ornamental type pieces worn at cocktail parties. However, they have recently become more popular again especially as the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, wore a vintage cocktail ring of Princess Diana’s to her wedding reception with Prince Harry.
Cocktail rings do all the talking and can just be worn as a solitary accessory. Here we have our collection of cocktail rings with inspiration on how to style them.
Firstly we have our vintage citrine cocktail ring. This ring is a 9ct yellow gold ring with a large oval citrine. This is a similar to style to the one Meghan Markle wore to her evening reception and could be styled in a similar way with a simple white dress in the summer to complement the ring and let it become the show-stopping item of your outfit.
Another beautiful cocktail ring we have is our jade cabochon cocktail ring. This ring is great as it is so versatile. The colour of the cabochon jade stone is so versatile and would look great with light summer clothing, or as a great stand out piece against blacks in the winter months. It would also create a great contrast between prints and clashing colours so could be worn with any outfit.
Fun fact about Jade: In China, it is viewed as a spiritual stone that has healing qualities. So you’re getting a great fashion piece and a healing stone in one!
Take on this trend with a more unique style of cocktail ring with our onyx and diamond cocktail ring. This piece is vintage and will let you give a nod to the origins of the trend in the art deco era. This piece will be great worn with simple diamond earrings as it is so glamorous and dazzling you’re going to want it to be the talking point of your outfit!
A final choice we have is a more subtle take on the trend as it doesn’t have a huge stand out stones, yet don’t be fooled, this ring will still light up any room with its sparkle. Our cracked paint effect cocktail ring is 18ct rose gold filled with dazzling white diamonds. Wear this ring with a more contemporary, high- fashion look or keep it elegant with a cocktail or evening dress.
All of these cocktail rings are beautiful, timeless pieces, brought back into the limelight with Meghan Markle’s fashion choices and it looks like they’re here to stay!
