This statement jewel, that takes its name from the Prohibition era in America in the 20’s, remains a constant feature season after season, that even increased during the end of the year celebrations.

From modern masterpieces to giant nature-inspired pattern, whatever shape or style you opt for, the bigger and the bolder better is. This eye-catching ring usually has an oversized center made of cushion-shaped semiprecious stones – as these gems are designers’ favorite to rock the fashionable accessory – or a lot of small stones in their settings in order to maximize their dazzling effect.

Pomellato goes even further this year by presenting a high jewelry collection dedicated to the beauty of hard stones. Part of the 50th Anniversary Edition, Pomellato unveiled the Ritratto ring features tiger’s eye, malachite and other opaque gems, a first time for the Italian jeweler which succeed in incorporating its emblematic irregular cuts in raw stones.

Fascinating and exuberant, Pomellato’s Ritratto ring pursues the emblematic story of the unconventional cocktail rings whilst celebrating the Italian’s house innovative vision. If you don’t need to wait until your next cocktail to go big, the Holiday Season is the perfect timing to raise your glass to the ultimate party piece!
