Did you know cocktail rings were intended to draw attention to your cocktail? That’s right.

Feeling free and liberated, these jewellery items convey much more than good style. They represent a carefree attitude towards life, one that is full of fun!

I don’t mean to be biased, but nothing beats a margarita. With a sour and salty margarita in your hands, you know the night’s going to be full of fun.

A margarita is traditionally served in a margarita glass or a champagne coupe with a salted rim. Its a drink for a fun-loving girl who likes to keep her style cool and fresh. Pasionae’s Snow Ring is cool, chic and bold. It makes a huge visual impact, and would complement the subtle lime tones of your margarita with flair.

Everyone knows this cocktail. The cosmopolitan is the red nail polish or red lipstick of the world of cocktails. Sexy and sensual, the rich red hues radiate romance. This drink became hugely popular in the 90s thanks to Sex And The City character Carrie Bradshaw, who is rarely spotted without a bright cosmopolitan clutched in her hand in the series. The cocktail is vodka-based and mixed with triple sec, cranberry juice and freshly squeezed lime. Inspired by Carrie’s lavish taste, we have another baerjewels cocktail ring to pair with this sweet red delight. The Burmese Red Spinel Ring is a ring of incomparable beauty. Adorned with an array of shiny white diamonds, the brilliance of the central red masterpiece is accentuated. This ring could be spotted from a mile off, imagine how magical it will look twinkling under the lights of a low-lit cocktail bar. Dreamy, right?
The white Russian was long considered an unsophisticated drink. That was until cult film The Big Lebowski popularised the drink. The striking appearance of this drink creates a strong visual allure. Made using a mixture of coffee liqueur and vodka, topped off using cream of milk, a monochromatic colour block is created in the tumbler. Taking inspiration from the contrasting chocolate and cream colour palette, I think Shimmer By Cindy’s cocktail ring is the perfect pick for the lady who relishes a white Russian. This ring is handcrafted using a rich black gemstone and a champagne coloured halo. Let this beautiful and chic ring twinkle in the light as you sip elegantly on you delicious drink.
The French 75 cocktail was created by Harry MacElhone in Harry’s Bar Paris during the 1920s. Imagine the scene. It’s the roaring 20s, you’re sat in a Parisian cafe listening to jazz and wearing your finest evening gown. The charismatic waiter comes dancing over and places two French 75s on the table. Champagne, gin, lemon juice, and a dash of syrup, garnished with a twist of lemon. As you seize the drink, your diamond cocktail ring glitters on your finger. What does that ring look like? It has to be Van der Veken’s Toi et Moi ring, of course. Featuring a yellow and cognac coloured diamond, and yellow, white and rose gold, this subtle colour palette reflects the elegance of the French 75 cocktail to a tee.
