Why are cocktail rings called cocktail rings?

Cocktail rings are called so because they gained popularity during the Prohibition era in the United States, which lasted from 1920 to 1933. During this period, the production, sale, and transportation of alcohol was banned, and people began to gather in secret at speakeasies to drink cocktails. Women attending these parties often wore bold and eye-catching rings, which came to be known as cocktail rings. These rings were typically larger and more decorative than the traditional rings of the time, and they were designed to draw attention and spark conversation. Today, cocktail rings are still a popular accessory for special occasions and formal events.


Can you wear cocktail rings everyday?

Cocktail rings are usually large, bold, and often adorned with precious stones or intricate designs, which can make them stand out and be more appropriate for formal or special occasions rather than everyday wear. However, whether or not you can wear a cocktail ring every day ultimately depends on your personal style, lifestyle, and work environment.

If you do choose to wear a cocktail ring daily, you may want to consider the style and size of the ring to ensure that it is comfortable and practical for everyday wear. Look for cocktail rings with a lower profile that won’t catch on clothing or get in the way during daily activities. You may also want to choose a more versatile style that can be dressed up or down, so that the ring can be worn with a variety of outfits.
