Do what benzjie said, but instead of filling at the end, extrude the splines, make sure the start and end ARE capped this time. voila!

Haha! I have been watching this thread with great interest as usually requests for items like this have usually been answered with the stock reply "Read the Manual" so it seems hopefully, times they are a changing.

I tried andrews method and found that one to be pretty quick!

so this might be another bit to go in Dotan8 !!

Heh heh.  I think, at times, these threads stop being about answering the OP's question, and start being more about showing off one's modelling kung fu!  But hey, it's great, everybody learns something new and we are reminded, again, that there are often many approaches to the same result.

make 2 Ngons with 60 sections, have the first one be the size of the ring. the second one should be the thickness of the ring. select the smaller Ngon go to  Build > Extrude and select "path" in the axis selection. click ok. select the larger ring. then add a material/ texture you can get a good result. here is one i made.
