Over one thousand rings from Yves Gastou's personal collectionare beautifully displayed and photographed in this sumptuousbook. Gastou deals in 20th century decorative arts from his Parisian gallery, but perhaps his most passionate undertaking is inbuilding his collection of Men's rings.His collection is as diverse as it is large; from ancient Egyptianexamples to gothic masterpieces, and religious examples tomemento mori, bikers' rings to an entire chapter devoted to curiosities, Gastou has built an all-encompassing treasury. In silveror gold, set with jewels or skulls, sober or extravagant, ritual orrebellious, these pieces bear the imprint of a taste, that of theinsatiable gallerist freely appropriating the different periods, itseems unlikely that another assemblage will ever rival Yves Gastou's fabulous collection.
