Ringe sind beliebt und werden von Frauen wie Männern gerne getragen. Die meisten Schmuckkünstler/innen haben sich deshalb in irgendeiner Form mit Ringen auseinander gesetzt. In diesem Buch zeigt Jinks McGrath die geschichtliche und symbolische Bedeutung von Ringen auf, bevor sie sich den aktuellen Goldschmiedetechniken für Ringformen, Fassungen, Dekorationen oder Oberflächenstrukturen zuwendet. Die Eigenschaften verschiedener Metalle und die geeigneten Techniken wie Löten, Ausglühen, Schmieden oder Giessen werden anhand konkreter Beispiele Schritt für Schritt praktiziert. Dabei konzentriert sich die Autorin auf schlichte Modelle, die nach individuellem Geschmack weiterentwickelt werden können. Inspirationen liefert der Galerieteil im Anhang, der Werke von internationalen Künstler/innen präsentiert. Ausserdem hilft eine Übersichtstabelle bei der Auswahl des passenden Edelsteins.
