Cocktail rings are such great statement jewellery that blings up your entire hand! Especially if you have had a good manicure, cocktail rings set off the polish well. They have also have become increasingly popular too, stemming from the celeb trend of wearing 'big' jewellery.
Im a big jewellery fan, but cocktail rings are something I always wear, I feel strangely blank without a big ring!
Note though, too many oversize rings does look a little bit overpowering, you don't want to end up looking like you are a walking jewellery shop- or worse still, an Ice T wannabe!
Same with the Queen of Bling, Jennifer Lopez. Her gold cocktail ring looks fabulous against her coral gown. Less is always more!!
Here's a few of my fave cocktail rings, I have a huge collection that I have been adding to for years.
This one from Matalan, was £4. I love the pale cracked marble stone, and the silver wire wrapped round it is so unusual!
Another Primark bargain! This was £2. I like the turquoise stone in particular, and the the way it takes up half my finger with the stems. Very boho!
Best places to get cocktail rings are Topshop, Diva at Miss Selfridge, Acessorize, and small boutiques and stalls for extra special, unique pieces that no one else will have.
