Drink In These Alluring Amethyst Cocktail Rings


It’s said that cocktail rings are making a big comeback, and one can see why. After several years of hiding behind (or in front of) our computer screens, we need to get our hands some proper attention again.

Take a look at any recent red-carpet event and you’ll have all the proof you need—Lizzo’s Grammy rings are just one excellent example—but the reemergence of statement jewelry goes well beyond celebrity-studded celebrations.

For the average consumer, a cocktail ring might take the form of costume jewelry—not a lot of everyday buyers are seeking those red-carpet investment pieces on a whim. But for those looking for something made with precious materials, this month’s birthstone is a fantastic option for a cocktail ring.

Often more affordably priced than other gems, amethyst has the bang-for-your-buck factor that a lot of other colored gemstones don’t, and its purplicious presence is pretty undeniable.

See all the evidence below—a range of pieces with varied styles, sizes, and prices, all shining examples of amethyst cocktail rings at their finest.
