A ring of protection was a magical device that helped keep the one who wore it from physical harm. The ring could deflect a small part of most attacks.[2]


Rings of protection were old items, and the knowledge to create them was quite well-known. A shield of faith spell was needed in the creation, so they were made mostly by clerics.[2]
