As a cocktail ring (and cocktail party) connoisseur, we can attest to the fact that nothing gets a conversation started quicker than an amazing piece of finger candy. Whether gold, silver, or somewhere in between, a cocktail ring is often all you need to liven up an LBD or tee-and-jeans look. They're easier to commit to than a statement necklace, and you don't have to worry about it matching your outfit completely — even better, you can keep one (or more) in your purse to slip on when the unexpected opportunity arises.
