George Brooks, Ring with Three Cultured Pearls, 1975, hand-forged and welded 18k yellow gold and pearls, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Museum purchase, 1975.146
The dimensions of this ring diminish its usefulness as jewelry yet reflect the artist’s belief that “There should be no difference, really, between a piece of jewelry and a piece of sculpture. Ideally, one should be a work of art that is worn instead of displayed on a stand.”
