With their pops of color or bursts of glitter, cocktail rings are the ultimate statement pieces. Generally oversized, dramatic rings set with precious or semiprecious stones, they became popular during the 1940s and ’50s. Worn on the fourth finger of the right hand, or sometimes the index finger, they dazzle and delight.
