The ring consists of a beautiful blue band with gold edges decorated with pearls and a light blue lozenge-cut gemstone in the middle, flanked by a design of two doves. In the original Japanese games, the care ring actually refers to two different accessories since their effects are very different but they both use the same design.
The care ring has a wisdom bonus of +15 and changes the wearer's personality to Good egg. However, equipping the ring only affects the rate at which characters will learn spells and will not increases the wearer's maximum MP growth rate. It can be equipped by all vocations and can be sold for 495 gold. One can be found in Fifer's Spire and the other in the Tower of Rubiss. It only appears in remake versions of the game.

The care ring can be crafted using the Fun-Size Forge after finding the recipe book "Little Lifesavers", which can be found in Heliodor Castle during Act II. If two care rings +3 are equipped at once, it is possible to become completely resistant to the enemy's spell and skill-sealing abilities.
The care ring increases the wearer's Seal Resistance by 40%. It can be made using the Alchemy Pot and it can be sold for 300 gold. Seal Resistance can be increased to 100% by wearing multiple rings.
