18ct yellow gold, black rhodium, enamel, verdigris brass and yellow sapphire flower ring
If Queen Titania wore jewellery, this floral ring would be firmly on her finger. As the name suggests, this one-of-a-king cocktail ring draws its inspiration from the woodland world created by William Shakespeare in his iconic play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
The Midsummer Ring is hand-crafted in 18ct yellow gold and verdigris brass. A bright, yellow sapphire sits at the centre surrounded by white enamel dots, which give this floral creation the appearance of a magical, hybrid-flower-toadstool – a new species found only in Tessa’s imagined garden.
Undoubtedly, this piece is all about statement design and narrative storytelling – in our opinion the two perfect ingredients for a knock-out cocktail ring. Bold and beautiful, it is a miniature work of art guaranteed to turn heads and make you stand out from the crowd. A real winner for anyone who likes their jewellery big and floral.
This ring is available immediately in size N but can be customised to any ring size for a small additional cost.
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.
