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.
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.
