The Caracol is one of our signature cocktail rings and undoubtedly one of Tessa’s most enduring designs. Inspired by the geometric architecture of ancient Mexico, the Caracol Ring is adorned with three rows of channel-set black sapphires, mirroring the brickwork found on many of its earliest temples. A classic by day or night, this piece brings weight and sophistication to any outfit. Available immediately in Size P (made to Order in any other size).
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.
