Cocktail Hour Ring
Sterling silver and 18ct yellow gold vermeil umbrella cocktail ring
For those who consider a good cocktail to be a matter of the heart, this ring is about as easy as it gets to having a drink in hand at all times.
Hand-crafted in silver and 18ct yellow gold vermeil, the one-of-a-kind Cocktail Hour Ring playfully nods to the tradition of cocktail rings, which first emerged in the jazz-age of the 1920s as a symbol of opposition to Prohibition. During that time, an alcoholic cocktail was about as rebellious a status symbol as you could get. Making sure that everyone noticed your illicit drink was equally important – particularly for women – who were beginning to challenge their proscribed role in the home and society. The cocktail ring – in all its colourful, blinging glory – was thus invented as an emblem of female independence and became the perfect accessory at secret parties in towns and cities across America.
This ring has featured in such publications as The Jewellery Cut, Canary Wharf Magazine, Luxury London Magazine and Brummel Online.
The Cocktail Hour Ring hails from our Under the Influence collection, inspired by the whimsical, colourful and joyous world of the cocktail. Developed like potions in an apothecarist’s lab, the collection explores the way in which many of our most legendary cocktails came to be, as well as the ingredients within them and the effects they have on those who enjoy them the most.
