While he does make interesting rings...
...I encourage you to check out Spain's Esteban Erosky for his illustrative enamelwork.
Rings (and hairpin) from the "Rolling" series by South Korea's Jun Suk Min. Check out the gallery for photos of the pieces in progress!
Rings (and a bangle) from the "Pan" collection by Bosnian jeweller Iman della Luna. Inspired by local mountains, these pieces in wood, glass and plants contain "the spirit of the forest that you can wear close to your heart."
Ring-Free Thursday: Australia's Concrete Jellyfish.
All the best colours, in solid or mixed glass, from Japan's Moku.
"Fusion of metal and form" (and interesting form at that) from the Netherlands' Carmen Vollebergh.
These rainbow rings were made with acrylic waste, using an adapted version of the traditional mokumegane technique.
Visit Spanish jeweller Yomisma Design (Yael Olave Munizaga) for more, like this anatomical heart inspired by the artist's own illness.
Greek jeweller Constantinos Papadoukas is not only prolific but also produces work in many diverse styles. Don't miss the rest of his jewellery, like the "Sacred Spaces" pendant series inspired by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Ring-Free Thursday: Germany's Alena Willroth.
Japan's Yukari Adachi seems to work in dualities and contrasts, with each piece having a counterpart either in the collection or within itself.
Hot tip: check out Toronto's Studio Orobica (Lena Binnington) for this "Probe" fingertip ring.
As a certain never-nude's acting coach would say, throw these in a pot and baby, you've got a stew going. But don't really, because you'd be destroying the creative work of Italy's LaTalea, who turns vegetables and other plants into wearables.
While you're there, check out the leaf art!
Porcelain "Eternity" and "Cameo" rings by Australia's Cita Daidone, who puts a touch of the Victorian in her sculptural pieces.
Ring-Free Thursday: Japan's Kei Goto.
Korean artist Siiot mostly creates the kind of ceramic sculptures I imagine a fairy would keep in its home, but recently came out with these rings adorned with glass, gold and white gold.
It's the first of the month, so: "rabbit rabbit" for good luck, courtesy of Iranian ceramist Mahsa Razmavari (who has an adorable collection of plates and mugs).
I've put this post off for weeks because I didn't think I could assemble a photocollage that would do this artist justice. Rather than try, I'll simply ask you to go view the incredible artistry for yourself. Please visit Bosnia's Elird (Ena Mulavdic & Ebrahim Mohammadian).
I am very verre-y excited about these glass rings by Italy's Studiozero-Vetro (Caterina Zucchi, who calls herself a "a researcher of forms").
The rings are just the start, so go check out the entire gallery!
Ring-Free Thursday: the UK's Lois Jane.
Lots of spots and dots from Toronto-based ceramic jeweller Here and Here (Amy Rogers).
One look at how these gems are arranged and it's easy to guess that New Zealand's Neil Adcock is not only a jeweller but also a sculptor.
If "archeoartifactual" were a word, I'd use it to describe these rings by Israel's Sharon Leshem.
I love everything about these, from the frosted look of the stones to the scalloped settings to the skulls. See more by visiting Germany's Kira Fritsch.
Ring-Free Thursday: Mexico's Laura Honse.
When it comes to raw crystal, I often see rings in the "Superman's lair" vein of jagged quartz, but this "chiselled slab" style seems to be rarer. If you're a fan of the slab like I am, visit South Korea's Jiwon Song (who also has some in-progress photos you can check out).
Well, you can probably guess what song I have stuck in my head now.
Rings and heart of glass by Japan's Mex.
Girls and their cats (or is it the other way around?) by French ceramic artist Adelle Zanotti, whose teapots, cups and spoons are worth a visit!
In her oh-so-apropos "Anybody There?" series, Austria-based Elisabeth Drude cuts the brains of our communication devices into little wearable speech bubbles.
More of her rings above; visit her site to see the rest!
Ring-Free Thursday: "ball and socket" 3D-printed bangles from Philadelphia's Ellen Sisti.
UK-based Yilin Dong is a "jewellery player" who makes "wooden toys" using magnets, pastels, metals and more.

I absolutely love the inspiration behind these "Drive Through" rings!
Visit Pennsylvania's Merha Shahid for more of this fun "Street Wear" collection.
Ring-Free Thursday: Rhode Island-based Chinese artist Jiayi Lao
I love the colour palette and the simplicity of these glass rings by Germany's Polarglas (Nicole Mehnert).

Rings, resembling cartoon objects come to life, by German designer Santi Zoraidez.
