The Owl Cave Ring is a gold ring with a green jade stone engraved with the symbol on the poll of the Owl Cave.
This object is linked to The Man from another Place, saying during the meeting that "With this ring, I thee wed." Its exact effects are unknown but they seem to be linked to BOB's murders.
Known wearers Edit
The following peoples are known to have been in contact with it at some point.
- White Indians: A tribe living near what will be called White Tail Falls and where will be Twin Peaks. They gave three artifacts, including the ring to the Nez Perce tribe.
- Chief Twisted Hair: Chief of the Nez Perce, owned the ring in a leather pouch but knows that it should never be worn.
- Meriweter Lewis: Was given the leather pouch by Twisted Hair. He shortly wore the ring near the area of the White Indians but after a psychedelic vision regretted doing so and destroyed his map.
- Major James Neely: Stole the ring from the leather pouch on Governor Lewis corpse. Disappeared from the public eye, maybe thanks to his relations with General James Wilkinson.
- Aleister Crowley: Never explicitly said, but his pupil Jack Parsons who reenact his rituals wears the ring.
- Jack Parsons: Wore the ring on his right ring finger. Was apparently in contact with the Lodge's spirits since he begins to say the Fire Walk with Me chant. Died in a fulminate of mercury explosion, maybe a double explosion and might be a "fire demon", his right arm was never found. Might have received the ring from his Thelema guru Aleister Crowley, though never clearly implied.
- President Richard Milhous Nixon: Wore the ring on his right ring finger.
- Special Agent Phillip Jeffries: Never explicitly said, but mentioned that he found something at Judy's in Seattle and later mumbles "Ring. The Ring" to himself with his head on Gordon's desk.
- Teresa Banks: Her left arm was once numb three days before she died. She wore the ring on her left ring finger. She is not wearing it during shown scenes of her murder. It was not found in her belongings. Bob put the letter "T" under the nail of her left ring finger.
- Special Agent Chester Desmond: Found the ring where Mrs. Chalfont and her grandson lived at Fat Trout. He then disappeared shortly after to never be seen again.
- Philip Gerard: Shows the ring on the little finger of his only right arm to Laura while yelling "it's your father." Throws the ring at Laura during BOB's ritual, causing the latter to kill her.
- Man From Another Place: Shows it on a table to the Good Cooper in the Lodge, asking if it is future or past. Later gives it to Laura in her dream before she died, but Cooper told her not to take it. Shows the same table to Cooper and asking the same question, with the ring missing, explaining that someone else has it now.
- Laura Palmer: She felt numb in her left arm with the ring in her hand, when waking from the dream with the Man From Another Place mentioned above; the ring quickly disappears. She puts the ring on her left ring finger during BOB's ritual when MIKE throws it at her, forcing BOB to kill her. Bob put the letter "R" under her left ring fingernail.
- Annie: Had the ring on her left ring finger when returning from the Black Lodge.
- A nurse: Took the ring from an unconscious Annie and wore it on her left ring finger.
Robert Jacoby wore a similar ring on his left ring finger but it is difficult to know if it is the same one.
Douglas Milford wore a similar looking gold ring with a green stone on his right little finger when he died which he was wearing before marrying Lana. It is difficult to know if it is intended to be the same one.
- In Episode 16, when Cooper interogates MIKE, the spirit mentions a golden circle when recounting his time with BOB. Cooper assumes it to be his own ring borrowed by the Giant.
- In the Meeting Room, the green Formica table touched by The Man From Another Place when talking about the ring has a circular hole that he is looking at. This may indicate that the jade of The Ring is taken from this table.
- A supposed effect of the ring is that BOB must kill those who wear it, thus forcing BOB to kill Laura instead of possessing her as wanted.
- Another interpretation is that by wedding Man From Another Place, BOB becomes unable to possess that person. Since BOB said he wants to be or to kill Laura, he is now forced to kill her since he can't possess her.
- The fact that a wearer loses feeling to his left arm might be because MIKE cut his one off.
