This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Rings symbolize many things. They can serve as personal statements, adornments, representations of commitment, or sentimental reminders. More than purely decorative, the position of the ring on the hand and the way in which it is worn can denote love, promise, rebellion, compromise, or affiliation. In the hands of the world's most creative jewelers they can become endlessly fascinating works of art. This marvelously illustrated survey showcases 591 contemporary rings, created by nearly 300 designers from around the world, divided into five sections -- one for each finger. The rings range from traditional and decorative to conceptual and even abstract pieces. The featured designers employ a wide variety of techniques, and an inventive array of materials, including gold, platinum, precious stones, plastic, bones, fiber, wood, shells, plants, and more. This revised and updated edition includes 100 new designs.
