Due to the popular 2007 show Mad Men, cocktail rings have been pushed into the limelight again and we’re not complaining!
Designed as conversation starters, these mini artworks started off as simple stone rings at the end of WWII. During the 1930s, 1940s, 1950s and even the 1960s cocktail rings were all the rage. Their popularity started to fade away in the 1970s and 1980s when at-home drinking parties became much less common.
Now, cocktail rings are back and bigger than ever thanks to Mad Men showing off plenty of 1960s fashion and the need to look glamourous, despite the recession, claims Professional Jeweller.
Several celebrities have been seen wearing cocktail rings, with Kourtney Kardashian sporting one on the front cover of Lucky magazine. The US reality TV star teamed her monochrome outfit with a blue and silver cocktail ring to add a dash of colour to her ensemble.
Spice Girl Emma Bunton was also seen wearing a cocktail ring when she reunited with her old band members to launch a new musical based on their discography called ‘Viva Forever.
