Although the name suggests jewelry to be worn at a cocktail party, the term applies to costume jewelry, that is, jewelry to complement a costume or outfit. The cocktail party itself seems to date from the early 1900s. But cocktail jewelry is at least 300 years old. Silver jewelry became popular during World War II.
Trendy, beautiful and affordable, cocktail rings
are especially popular, as are statement necklaces — dramatic designs of high impact.
Novica's newest designs can be seen in our Cocktail Jewelry Collection. Each beautiful pair of earrings, necklace, bracelet or ring is handcrafted by artisans from around the world. There's something for every taste and budget. Enjoy!
