Ones with a big center stone usually have a more formal look to them, while ones that feature a number of small stones are typically more casual.

Tips to on how to wear cocktail rings

Unless you are  going for obvious excess, you probably want to wear just one cocktail ring at a time. Because they draw so much attention to your hand, they can cancel out the effect of other jewelry, unless it is even more bold and sparkling.

This does not mean that you can’t wear other jewelry with a dinner ring, just that the ring will usually be the focal piece. Stud earrings or even moderate dangles, or a pendant on a fairly thin chain can help complete your look, particularly if you are wearing the standard little black dress or something else in matte solids.

Some jewelers make cocktail watches to go along with cocktail rings, or you can find a complementary cocktail watch. Because these watches are in the same visual line as your hand, they and the ring complement rather than distract from one another. Bracelets are another option, particularly tennis bracelets that include the same color stones.

Since your cocktail ring is a bold statement on its own, there are a few limited rules. Today, you can wear your cocktail ring to dress up jeans, wear it by day, or of course to your favorite gala affair.
