A History of the Ring

Embark for a discovery of the history of the ring: from wedding rings to heraldic signets, from devotion rings to contemporary artists’ creations.

It is one of the oldest forms of bodily adornment: worn by both men and women, declaration of social or political status, marker of significant life events, expression of identity or protective talisman, the ring presents a diversity of aspects and functions.

A true miniature work of art, the ring is also the expression of the boundless creativity of goldsmiths and jewelers.
