Cocktail Ring A large ring worn on any finger other than the left ring finger can be called a cocktail ring. The history of the cocktail ring goes back to the American prohibition era of the 1920s. During this time, alcoholic beverages were banned, leading to the rise of illegal drinking establishments called speakeasies where for the first time, women were also in attendance. These art deco era women would drink glamorous cocktails in their best outfits which included oversized gemstone rings to flash while raising their glasses. Cocktail rings can feature any large stone, from diamond, sapphire, pearl and emerald to tourmaline, aquamarine or citrine. Others feature smaller stones set together to form flowers or animals such as panthers or tigers.

Bombé Bombé, from the French, literally means rounded like a bomb, and refers to a curved or dome-shape that was particularly popular in rings and earrings in the 1940s and 1950s.

Enamel Enamel is a coating applied to metals using high temperatures to produce glassy vivid colors. This technique has been used throughout time, by the ancient Persians, ancient Egyptians, in China, Rome, Greek, Celtic territories, and the Byzantine Empire. Key styles include the cloisonné technique, known as the "cell technique," where are placed in a desired pattern and the spaces are then filled with enamel, as well as Champlevé, where patterns are inset on a thicker plate. Guilloché , associated with both Fabergé and Cartier, is symmetrical engraving produced by the Rose-Engine machine, invented in the early 1800s.

David Webb David Webb founded his eponymous company in 1948 in New York, becoming known for whimsical animal motifs including zebra, snakes, tigers and panthers among others. Before his passing in 1975, Webb was firmly established as a Hollywood favorite, with famous clients including Elizabeth Taylor and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.
