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!
