The Doctor wore several rings over his lifetime. The First Doctor wore a signet ring throughout his life, (TV: An Unearthly Child - The Tenth Planet) only for the Second Doctor to discard it upon discovering that it was too large for him. (TV: The Power of the Daleks) The Seventh Doctor later recovered this ring (COMIC: The Chameleon Factor) and began wearing it once again. (COMIC: The Good Soldier, PROSE: Tragedy Day et al)
The Third Doctor adopted a pinky ring which he wore on his left hand, (TV: The Ambassadors of Death onwards) while the Twelfth Doctor wore a ring with an amber gemstone on his left hand ring finger. (TV: Deep Breath onwards) The ring fell to the TARDIS floor when he regenerated within the TARDIS control room, having been released as his successor's hands were smaller. (TV: Twice Upon a Time)
The Master wore numerous different rings throughout his life.

(TV: Dark Water/Death in Heaven, The Magician's Apprentice/The Witch's Familiar)
Rings could be used as bio-dampers. The Tenth Doctor gave Donna Noble a bio-damper in the form of a ring so that she would be hidden from the Racnoss. (TV: The Runaway Bride) Gavin wore a bio-damper ring he inherited from his father which hid his alien origins. (TV: The Empty Planet)
