Cocktail rings are commonly rings which feature a large precious gemstone which is at least 3 carats in weight surrounded with smaller precious gemstones. Diamond cocktail ring is not only a ring with 3 carat diamond but it can be also used to address a combination of a variety of diamond shapes and styles which creates lovely organic forms or striking geometric designs. It is named as cocktail ring, or also known as dinner ring for the occasions the ring is worn. As we know, dressy dinners and cocktail parties need bold accessories with extra sparkles.
