While once warn only at cocktail parties or similar events, cocktail rings have become quite the
latest fashion for many women at any event, or even for casual daily wear. They are made in many
different styles, but almost always feature a large gem or imitation gem. Because of the size of the
center gemstone, fake gems are almost always used, as to use a real gemstone would be extremely
costly and perhaps even difficult to find. Unique cocktail rings can really add to an outfit and show off
your style. Because of the larger flashy looks, there are many styles of cocktail rings to purchase.
These rings can be set in sterling silver, yellow gold, white gold, or any other desire metal. The
bands themselves can be quite thick or rather thin, though they are generally on the thicker side due to
the size of the gem that they support. They can be purchased with amethysts, emeralds, diamonds,
opals, rubies, pearls, or just about any other accent stones, but generally the stones purchased are
imitations. Many unique cocktail rings feature cubic zirconia accents throughout the band to add even
more shine and attract more attention.
The shape of the accent gem varies. Some rings feature gems that are larger and round, while
others are more oval. Squoval, or squares with rounded edges, are also becoming popular right now. In
addition to these shapes, rectangular gems and heart shaped gems can also be eye catching. Tear drop
gems can look very nice, especially when worn with earrings and necklaces which also feature a tear
drop design. Finding unique cocktail rings is a great way to stand out from the crowd, and there are
many options available for those who are looking for a flashy accent piece for their favorite outfit.
