Summary "Rings are powerfully evocative pieces of jewelry, traditionally worn as symbols of love, loyalty, remembrance or faith. Focusing on the V&A's world-famous collection, Rings tells the story of their evolution from sculptural gem-set bands worn in medieval times to Art Deco masterpieces, dramatic gemstone "rocks" of the 1950s, and innovation works of art created by contemporary jewelers" -- Page 4 of cover.
