We just loooooove holding a glass of bubbly; yes, it’s delicious (and massively smile-inducing), but during the holiday party season, it’s a great way to show off your sparkle. Cocktail parties call for cocktail rings, and the holidays are the time to break out the big guns. But a gorgeous rock needs a complementary manicure to ensure your hands are as chic as that Veuve you’re holding. Here, our favourite match-ups for every budget, much like champagne and oysters.
This supremely luxurious Irene Neuwirth Diamond Collection Gemstone Ring ($10,585) is a 18k satin-finished gold ring with pavé-set white diamonds that surround a glorious whopping tourmaline. Although an obvious pick (hello, red and green combo!), a blood-red manicure is also the most flattering: the shades are the most complementary for one another, but the stone is still light enough to easily be translated into your summer wardrobe. You also want to keep nails classic, simple and sexy; this ring demands elegance. Swipe on a few coats of the ultra-glossy, intensely saturated and appropriate-for-the-holidays shade Phenix by Chanel.
