A ring of feather falling was a common magical ring that protected the wearer from injury or death from falling.
Rings of feather falling were crafted with an intricate feather pattern around the whole ring. Although not required for their construction, the rings were often decorated with malachite, because common folk believed (erroneously) that the stone had gravitational intervention powers.
The ring automatically activated the same effect as the feather fall spell, whenever the wearer dropped suddenly more than five feet (150 centimeters), causing him or her to drop slowly like a feather.
Such a ring could be made by anyone trained in the art of crafting magic rings who also knew how to cast the spell feather fall.
