Ringmaker is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It is a miscellaneous quest received from Madesi in Riften.



Speak to Madesi about his jewelry. He will ask the Dragonborn to gather some components, because the roads are dangerous due to attacks of the bandits.

After finding one mammoth tusk, one gold ore, and two flawless sapphires, return to Madesi. In return, he offers a leveled jewelry as a reward.
