The various rings you can collect in Stardew Valley.
There are many kinds of rings in Stardew Valley.

There’s a wide range of rings in the game that you can wear for various effects. Some may just be for fashion, but they give players multiple benefits. Read this complete guide to find out which ones you might want to equip.

What are Rings in Stardew Valley?

They’re a type of accessory you can wear for different passive benefits, meaning you don’t have to activate them for their effects, as long as it’s on the empty slot.

By default, you can wear two rings simultaneously. However, it’s possible to stack their effects by combining them at the Forge inside the Volcano Caldera. 

This strategy saves another slot and helps maximize the perks you’ll get regardless of what you’re doing in-game.

Here is everything you must know about all rings in Stardew Valley.

1. Small Glow Ring

This item emits a light that reaches up to five tiles around you. You can stack its effects with the Glow Ring and the Iridium Band.
