Rings of arbitration were a pair of rings crafted for lovers who were bound body and soul.

They were both a blessing and a curse because, through the power of the rings, a burden such as a drain of life-force was shared between the wearers.

They were gold bands with a clear gemstone set in each. This gem reflected the condition of its wearer, turning to black when that person's energy or life-force was near its end.

The rings were created by magic long lost to the world by the mid–14th century DR and only a few pairs still existed.[1]
