I came across this white gold and diamond cocktail ring on the Kiki McDonough website:
It really just looked so delicious! Simple, clean, elegant – a stunning cocktail ring. A bit girly without being frilly.
And the stone: amethyst. What a great choice. They also do it in a blue topaz and while I think it also sparkles, the amethyst for me just has that extra wow factor, especially for evening.
A bit of history surrounding amethyst: Amethyst is also known as the Bishop’s stone, as it is worn by most catholic bishops to represent piety and wisdom. The folklore surrounding amethyst often refers to alcohol; in fact, its name in ancient Greek means ‘not drunk’. The Romans believed amethyst would prevent drunkenness…perhaps that’s why it’s the perfect choice for a cocktail ring!
Which stone do you like to wear in your cocktail rings? And with which cocktails?
