I found this article on rings in The Dragons of Britain magazine. Originally written for the King Arthur Pendragon RPG, I have edited it slightly to fit better into the world of Legend/Dragon Warriors.

Of possible interest to GMs, I think the table would need a little tweaking; there is no consideration given to the value of the ring, the tables are a little too “even”… But it might add some interest to an otherwise bland item of treasure.

(Fans of sub-tables should enjoy this, if nothing else!)

Rings can be quite elaborate. This one, for example, might be from the latter days of the Selentine Empire (after it had converted to the True Faith)…

There are 3 other photos, but I haven't worked out how to post more than one picture at a time (if that's even possible here).

(Actual details below)

Rare, octagonal ring decorated with eight scenes from the life of Christ, with the Ascension seen on the flat surface of the bezel (top). Protective powers were attributed to scenes of the life of Christ, which combine to form a prayer in pictures.

The ring is Byzantine, dating from the 6th-7th Centuries and was found in Egypt.
H: 5/8 x W: 7/8 x D: 1 in. (1.7 x 2.3 x 2.6 cm)

Can be seen at the Walters Art Museum, Baltimore, Maryland.
