You might say it's a band ring, but not when it's designed by Italian jeweller Alberto Milani. With a 0.90 total diamond carat weight, this is by no means a simple ring. Its design is what will draw people to take a breath and pause.

A Templar ring might not be what you expected as a perfect cocktail ring, but the crimson colour and the moonstone cabochon makes it pop out in any party. Match it with a crimson handbag and heels and you're good to go.

It always starts with a kiss, doesn't it? And this Boghossian Kissing Collection tells the tale of two gems joined together and the relationship it forms with each other. This perfect cocktail ring is made of a Paraiba tourmaline kissing a diamond on top it. Grab this one right away, rumours are tourmaline sources are dwindling in Brazil.

Sure, this is Annoushka's most expensive cocktail ring, just check out it's high polish and black rhodium finish. But if you're not wearing an 18-carat gold with 300 stones in it, are you showing off properly? Not to mention there are only 24 of this ring in the whole world, you will find yourself in a group of elites.
