Cocktail Sting Ring
18ct yellow gold and black sapphire bee cocktail ring
Bold and beautiful, the Cocktail Sting Ring is one of Tessa’s iconic pieces from the Predator/Prey collection, themed on the motif of the bee, wasp and honeycomb. Set with three bands of hand-cut, channel-set black sapphires, this mega cocktail ring is topped with a solid gold bee that appears to buzz around as the wearer moves her hands. Although dazzling and statement, this ring is actually extremely versatile due to its neutral colour palette and choice of gemstone. It can just as easily be worn in the day as at night, making it well worth the investment.
Cocktail rings 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 been featured in various international publications, including the Sunday Telegraph and FT’s How To Spend It.
