It takes only a couple of glamorous jewelry pieces to elevate an outfit from boring to fabulous. If you are not keen on wearing bold jewelry like statement necklaces or chunky earrings, cocktail rings would be a nice alternative. They provide an element of boldness without being too overpowering. They are the perfect choice of accessory for a formal dinner or night out. And they look so good with a clutch or an evening purse.
Cocktail rings were widely popular during the 1940s and the 1950s when glamorous parties were everywhere. While the trend died down after a while, bold pieces made a comeback a couple of years ago, and we started seeing more and more of these chunky pieces of jewelry on sophisticated red carpet events. These gorgeous rings make a statement of their own and look so sexy on delicate fingers. Most cocktail rings can be worn on any finger, too, even on the thumb. Just make sure you have a nice manicure that complements the ring style.
