THE FASHIONED HAND

Historic Finger Rings

October 2018

The Fashioned Hand: Historic Finger Rings presents twenty-four rings that span two millennia of history and originate in different cultures. 

Instead of organizing them chronologically, following traditional art-historical periods, or even geographically, the catalogue recognize that rings make statements above and beyond their historical context when displayed or worn. In an innovative approach to the art, they are divided into categories using adjectives that describe their appearance: Bold, Classic, Opulent, and Playful. The title of the catalogue thus deliberately blurs the distinctions between art, dress, and the body.
