That's basically how transformers are made, but with separate windings. The magnetic field goes around inside the ring.

See the "Basic Principles" section here:

You talking about an iron ring and INSULATED copper wire wrap around along the ring? That is like a toroid with wires and the magnet field going around in circle inside the ring.
