Cocktail ring

These rings first appeared during the prohibition era in the US as the ultimate accessory to wear with your cocktail – an over-sized, gemstone-studded statement ring, traditionally worn on the ring or index finger of your right hand. Cocktails were invented at this time to conceal the taste of black market alcohol and were served at underground parties for glamorous socialites.
