Rings of Protection of two levels of enchantment were available for sale at Gilmore's Glorious Goods in Emon. When Vox Machina came by on a shopping trip, party members Pike Trickfoot and Keyleth expressed interest in it, and the party purchases the ring, in addition to several other magic items, and Keyleth would eventually come into possession of it. Vox Machina would later spend some time divvying up their recently purchased magic items, including the Ring of Protection, and Vex'ahlia Vessar would keep it.

The ring is promptly given to party member Yasha Nydoorin.
