Happy Hour: This Friday's Round of Cocktail Rings

If you subscribe to the Marketplace Trend Report, you know that the last issue was all about cocktail rings (if you don’t subscribe, you can do that here). I talked a little bit about how the cocktail ring is thought to have originated during the Prohibition era, when the most fashionable of women would don their eye-catching bling to show off while sipping their illegal libations. Since we’re well on our way to the weekend, I thought I’d serve up another round of happy hour. I went through more of my favorite jewelry Q+As to bring you the answer to this question: If we were to live through another Prohibition, what would we be drinking, and more important, what jewels would be on our fingers? Cheers to a great weekend, to fall, and to the start of a new month!
