The Dress-Down On Dress Rings
Adding a selection of dress rings (or sometimes called cocktail rings) is an instant way to give more glamour to any outfit, a distinctive finishing touch for your special occasion. Dress rings are always en vogue – and this season, the bigger they are, the better. It’s hard to believe this well-loved trend actually first appeared in the 1920s and is still hugely popular today. Not only do dress rings look cool and classic, they are also a quick and easy way to make a statement with your jewellery. The best way to try the trend is to invest in some eye-catching gold designs that feature an injection of colour, or choose bright, eye-catching jewel tones.
What are dress rings?
Dress rings or cocktail rings are pieces of jewellery that are larger than normal rings and are designed to attract attention with their size and colours. These rings usually have an oversized centre stone or a lot of small stones in their settings. The gemstones in cocktail rings are often imitations.
