The shekel ring is a small golden band worth 1 silver piece. It can be worn, and is common currency among the deeka.
In order to confirm its worth, these rings are marked when minted on the inside and out. Mint marks vary from city to city and from minting to minting. Wearing a few is common practice instead of carrying a coin pouch for daily purchases, however, wearing too many is considered poor taste in fashion. Each finger (including the thumb) can easily wear two shekel rings. A hand may fashionably carry a single gold piece worth of gold (or twice that if daring to be ostentatious).
