The cocktail ring né dinner ring is a gorgeous, refined instrument of style. The oversize rings are usually made with precious and semi-precious stones. Popular during the 40s and 50s, the cocktail ring was (and is) usually worn on the fourth finger of the right hand. Modernists dubbed it the “right hand ring”.

Wearing a cocktail ring has a single simple rule: Just make it fabulous. The bolder the better. One on a single hand is sufficient though some women have dared to wear two. Whichever way you choose to wear them, just make sure it’s fab!
