The cocktail rings were a product of the American Prohibition era in the 1920s-1930s. Peolple wanted to celebrate their new-found freedom in any way they could, which included unusual haircuts, short skirts, drinking and smoking, cocktail parties, etc. Women during 1920s often wore traditional cocktail rings to these parties as part of their expression of freedom. MAIKO NAGAYAMA has reinterpretated this traditional dramatic cocktail ring into something contemporary using the technique of modern stone settings and more contemporary form and style which could be fashionably worn as a pret-a-porter statement ring. MAIKO NAGAYAMA has also created matching pendants and earrings to wear with MN pret-a-porter contemporary cocktail rings.
All the natural precious and semi-precious stones are carefully hand-picked by MAIKO NAGAYAMA herself as a designer and a GIA qualified gemmologist for every pieces.
