Cocktail rings were – and still are – predominantly worn on the right hand, in order to provide yet more separation from engagement, wedding, eternity or other more personal rings. They are intended for wearing during specific occasions, where the elaborate and excessive become the normal for the evening, and are by no means an everyday ring.
The popularity of cocktail rings hit its zenith in the 40s and 50s but saw a sharp decline as attitudes and fashions changed dramatically in the 1960s. The 80s, with all its spandex, big hair and gender-neutral motifs saw cocktail rings come back in a big way, and they have remained popular ever since.
