From the Power Ring to the Statement Ring

Cocktail rings- a symbol of independence and personal style.

In the 1990s, the cocktail ring was an emblem of power, worn on the right hand to symbolize women's autonomy. This extravagant ring was testament to their love for creativity, fashion, and a unique sense of individuality. The cocktail ring of that era was replete with colour, boldness and a dramatic flair.

The cocktail ring origins trace back to the 1920s during America’s prohibition era. Despite the ban on alcoholic beverages, illegal parties blossomed, giving rise to cocktail parties. Much like the women of today, they celebrated their freedom in a myriad of ways, including their distinctive style. Cocktail rings echoed their burgeoning freedom and prosperity.

The Cocktail Ring Resurgence: A Modern Elegance

In the current fashion world, characterized by an explosion of styles and colours, cocktail rings have made a triumphant return. But today’s cocktail ring, symbolising our high-quality lab-grown diamonds from Antwerp, is a refined translation of its earlier versions. Effortlessly blending boldness with subtlety, the modern cocktail ring, notably features a single precious coloured stone taking centre stage.

A statement cocktail ring, much like the timeless little black dress, is a must-have in any wardrobe. With Valquère, it's not just a piece of jewellery, it's a statement made.
