Summary "This definitive study places the ring within its historical and social context, and follows the development of ring design, manufacture and the materials used from its earliest appearance in the 5th Century BC to the experimental, abstract forms of the present day. In addition to offering a comprehensive historical study of ring design from a wide cross-section of civilisations and cultures, the book also provides an exhaustively-researched and richly-illustrated survey of the work of contemporary craftsmen-jewellers, including sketches and preliminary designs which reveal the creative process leading to the finished piece."--Jacket.
