Rings are perhaps the most common and yet the most evocative pieces of jewellery. Worn as a sign of love or as a fashion accessory, to mark weddings, remember the dead, or show religious faith, rings hold a multitude of meanings.
From simple medieval hoops worn to ward off disease, to the glamorous 'rocks' worn by Hollywood starlets, to the stunning works of art created by contemporary artist jewellers, this book offers readers a beautifully illustrated introduction to rings.
