On loan from the Victoria and Albert Museum, a selection of Edmund Waterton's amazing ring collection is now on exhibition at Wakefield Museum. For the first time since 1871, these rings are displayed along with their original display box, from the Wakefield Museum collection. It is all a thing of beauty.
