Cocktail rings date back to the 1920s. The age of jazz and art deco, Prohibition-era speakeasies, when women started smoking, wearing visible make-up, wore tunics and Dropped waist dresses accentuating their looks with bandeaus and sautoirs and large — the bigger the better — rings. At first most of them featured a large gem surrounded by diamonds, but later cocktail rings were much more diverse, though always large and voluminous. The most important things about them are the glittering of gems and the complexities of shape, but first and foremost — the character. These rings would never go unnoticed, they can be a centerpiece of an ensemble or even create the whole look. Rubeus presents it's interpretation of cocktail ring concept. The new collection features pieces perfectly suited for any occasion, from usual workdays to white-tie events. When is the best time for a cocktail? Any time, as long as it's a precious Rubeus cocktail!
The main feature in the design of these slim and wide rings is a large amethyst, a London Blue topaz or a citrine. A signature cut developed by the Rubeus designers and brought to life by the brand's master craftsmen is exquisitely hard to make. The facetted gem which curves with the ring itself is a single piece. Even a tiniest mistake in preparation, a single wrong stroke of an artisan's hand can ruin it completely. Only the most experienced lapidaries can achieve such perfection. Every gem with its deep shine and unique shade is unique, and so is every Signature Cocktail ring.
Rubeus jewels are designed by Frederic Manein Paris, and crafted by master artisansfrom all over Europe and all overthe world. For each task Rubeus finds, uncompromisingly, only the most experiencedand talented craftsmen.
