Candy Store

Cocktail? Get out your Rings!

I once arrived in Cannes for the Film Festival and my friend Claudia, seeing my collection of cocktail rings, exclaimed: “Wow, it’s like a candy store!”

I started collecting vintage cocktail rings many years ago, mainly in the early years of Ebay. Cocktail rings were NOT in fashion at the time, but I have always loved the power of the “statement” ring. These rings are definitely “more is more” and often a subject for conversation! Now they are coming abck in fashion in a big way. Look below for “Create the Look”.

Size is not enough, they have to be whimsical, different and totally unique! And preferably costume, that makes them fun. Never wear two on the same hand, that would spoil the effect. I like wearing them on my middle finger for most impact.
