We demonstrate the synthesis of novel core–shell nanoring superstructures consisting of non-dipolar Au nanorods coated with magnetic Ni shells. We show that the magnetic dipole induced self-assembly can be tuned by selective reduction of Ni on gold nanorods. Superstructures range from nanorings containing physically separated particles to solid rigid nanorings.
