The Ring of Pure Mixtures is a quest item in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


The Ring of Pure Mixtures is a rare artifact that Frida's husband, the previous owner of the shop The Mortar and Pestle, had searched for many years before dying without ever having found it.



  • Miscellaneous Quest: Retrieve the Ring of Pure Mixtures for Frida.


  • If the Merchant perk has been obtained when the ring is delivered to Frida, it will appear in her shop inventory, available for purchase. Alternatively, the Merchant perk can be purchased afterward, and the ring will then appear. If the Merchant perk is not available due to the Speech skill being too low, or cannot be obtained due to lack of available perk points, then it can only otherwise be obtained by either pickpocketing it from her, or killing her and looting it from her corpse. Pickpocketing or corpse looting this item, however, will result in it being permanently tagged as stolen, even after being sold and repurchased from a fence.

  •  360   It seems after a while of coming into her shop, buying alchemy ingredients but not asking her about where she picked up the alchemy trade, that dialogue option will disappear and the ring will be permanently unobtainable and the quest will never be given. No known fix exists.
