Let \(\mathfrak {R}\) be a ring graded by an arbitrary set A. We show that \(\mathfrak {R}\) decomposes as the sum of the well-described graded ideals plus (maybe) a certain subgroup. We also provide a context where the graded simplicity of \(\mathfrak {R}\) is characterized and where a second Wedderburn-type theorem in the category of arbitrarily graded rings is stated.
