"This Chinese calligraphy wall scroll features the Chinese symbols for As one Wishes"

The signs represent an archaic (Old) chinese which is often used on prestige objects. The ring as such could be from Japan, Korea as well as from China since this archaic chinese is used also there for its decorative (and mysterious) purpose.
