Toward an Art History of Medieval Rings gives a full survey of Merovingian, Byzantine, Medieval, and Renaissance rings, built on the basis of a private collection of 35 rings assembled over nearly two decades.

The rings range in date from around 300 to 1600 AD and are fine examples of most of the major types of ring created during this period. They include marriage rings, seal rings, stirrup rings, tart mould rings, iconographic rings, merchant rings, and gemstone rings, and are arranged chronologically.

Sandra Hindman describes each ring, placing it in its art historical context, often with comparisons to works of art in other media and rings in major public collections. Ilaria Fatone discusses the provenance, exhibition, and bibliographies of each ring. There is also a technical section by conservator Angélique Laurent-Di Montova who studies each ring, its material, fabrication, and use.
