Rings are powerfully evocative pieces of jewellery, traditionally worn as symbols of love, loyalty, remembrance and 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 innovative works of art created by contemporary jewellers.
