This is about the actual ring. For the book, see The Ring of Solomon.
"A few years previously, Jerusalem had been a dowdy little town, not especially notable, and certainly not to be compared with capitals such as Nimrud, Babylon, or Thebes. Now, it vied with those ancient cities as a place of wealth and splendor-- and the reason for that wasn't hard to guess. It was all about the Ring."

The Ring is a powerful artifact used by Solomon during his reign as king. It is a gateway to the Other Place, which makes it very powerful. Unfortunately, because it is a gateway, it is painful for either humans or djinni to use (humans suffer because their spirit is pulled toward the Other Place, ravaging their body). Djinni suffer a similar problem. Bartimaeus describes it as akin to a dismissal. Touching the Ring will summon a great host of spirits, including some marids and afrits (this comes from the nature of the Ring as a gateway). Turning the Ring on the finger of the user summons the spirit of the Ring, Uraziel, an entity stronger than a marid, who does the bidding of the person who wears the Ring. The Ring was created by a civilization near the Tigris-Euphrates.
