Cocktail rings have always been an eye opener for me. There are the good and the bad-- my job is to make sure you choose a cocktail ring that isn’t an eyesore. I always admire the older sophisticated ladies who pull off the cocktail ring with so much glam-- e.g., Elizabeth Taylor. So, this is dedicated to all the classy cocktail ring wearing grandmas who have paved the way, and created the unwritten rules of wearing a cocktail ring with a humble attitude. There are the real jeweled cocktail rings, but I’m not going there! I have found some fun costume jewelry cocktail rings to showcase that will spark a conversation for sure!

My first cocktail ring find is amazing. I just think it’s absolutely beautiful and stunning to see a lady wearing bold turquoise, and that’s exactly what this cocktail ring is! This Carolee Lux "Mediterranean Nights" Star Ring is fun and affordable. The combination of turquoise, pearls, and clear crystals is wonderful. Being turquoise it stands out, but it’s also a color that will brighten up your day and the day of anyone else glancing at this ring. The color is vibrant and will look delightful along with earth tones. How could you go wrong?

Next up, I found a much admired topaz ring. This ABS by Allen Schwartz Topaz-Hued Crystal Ring is unbelievably classy for a cocktail ring. This topaz-hued crystal ring is big and obnoxious, but easy on the eyes. The color balances the ring out, creating a softer look. It will go with anything and definitely start a conversation… or leave someone speechless. I think it’s a clean, clear design that will be a nice staple in an accessory collection.

Lastly, I want to highlight this fun Juicy Couture Coral Flower Cluster Ring. It’s simply gorgeous, and detailed. With so much detail, the ring is still glamorous-- and not too cluttered. The coral cluster is livened up by the cute butterfly resting on the coral beads and glittery stones. This will go great with bright colors, and will be a favorite in the spring and summer months. It is the more of a day time, less formal ring out of the three rings. It’s a soft feminine design that will look nice with a summer dress. Anything that reminds me of the warm months ahead is always a winner.

Now it’s time to get in touch with your inner Elizabeth Taylor side and rock one of these rings.
