Madesi's Silver Ring is a ring and quest item in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


A Chance ArrangementEdit

Madesi's Silver Ring is the item of interest in this quest. The Dragonborn must steal it from a strongbox inside Madesi's market stall at the Riften Marketplace and plant it on Brand-Shei as the first task to qualify for entrance into the Thieves Guild.



  • If the Dragonborn has been caught while trying to steal or place the ring during "A Chance Arrangement," it will be found in the evidence chest in the Riften Jail. Even if caught, the Dragonborn still qualifies for the Thieves Guild.
