The cocktail ring was designed as a sign of revolution against the American prohibition era. In the 1920s there was conflict between traditional values and progressive reform. This was the time when women got the right to vote and express their new-found freedom in the way they dressed.
During this period, a ban on alcohol was imposed, however, it didn't stop people from holding illegal drinking parties. It is believed progressive women would wear these large-sized rings to draw attention to the fact they were indulging in illicit alcoholic drinks. In today’s world, one where women can express their style freely, women wear these to flaunt their personal style. Usually, these rings are worn on the right hand.Which party pairing is your favorite? Shop fine cocktail rings and tag us in your Happy Hour action shots @porterlyonsdesigns
