Cocktail RingDiamond rings that most of us think about usually involve a wedding ring or engagement ring. Well, there is something that you probably do not hear much about. A right-hand diamond ring and its meaning. According to a blog report on, a woman wearing a diamond ring on the right hand is expressing her individuality. Now, there are plenty of ways that women express this individual status without a diamond ring.

However, this has special meaning. If you are wearing a large diamond encrusted ring or one with large gem stones on the right hand, this is usually a cocktail ring. It is typically worn to parties and is large with a lot of color and stylish designs.

If you will, a “look at mine” round circle of conversation that is undoubtedly a lot of fun and adds to the good time all is having.

For those who are more specifically making a statement to all around her that she is in control, and an individual who knows what she wants, the “Right Hand Ring” is adorned. It is not meant as a “stay away” ring to all of the guys, it just shows a little of her personality at the time and indicates her hard work to reward herself with a special gift. These rings are much more elegant with absolute beauty being the goal.

So, next time you are going to a cocktail party, remember the right hand and remember to have a great time while you are out with friends. Enjoy your “Right Hand Ring” as well knowing that you deserve the best and can enjoy just being a fun and loving ‘individual‘!
