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”.
