During the Prohibition era, the concept of a cocktail ring sprang to prominence. It served to highlight the intrigue of a forbidden coupe of champagne or at least bring attention to the illicit glamour that a cup of moonshine held. While libations are no longer illegal, that doesn’t mean one shouldn’t rock a few flashy accouterments while imbibing this holiday season.

Modern offerings pay brilliant homage to the era of their origin, with colorful geometry that riffs on Art Deco design. From the delicate detail of Jane Taylor’s pink and green tourmalines or Stephen Webster’s chunky white gold stunner, just think of these as a trusty “plus one” to any holiday soiree.
