New Rings : 500+ Designs
This marvellously illustrated book is a blend of the avant-garde, the unconventional and the delightful. It showcases nearly 600 contemporary rings by some 300 international designers who stimulate the imagination by challenging traditional practices and standard definitions. The finished products are sculpture for the hands, and range from the simple to the abstract, from everyday rings to those that are more challenging. Here are rings made of gold, platinum and precious stones, of wood, bones, fibre and shells... Without exception, they are all beautifully made and intriguing in their own way.
