Star Wars: Snoke’s ring is probably more than a fashion statement


What is going on with that ring on Snoke’s left hand. A recent Star Wars comic brought more attention to it and now we have more questions.

Snoke’s ring has been speculated about in Star Wars before. It’s not like someone like him to wear a ring as a matter of a fashion statement.

It was noticeable in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, but recently gained attention again with the Marvel comic Star Wars Age of Resistance: Supreme Leader Snoke No. 1. While much of the chatter around the comic has been about things said and done, there was also the noticeable artwork highlighting the ring.

It starts on the very first panel that puts the ring front and center. There are at least three more panels that show it up close with the ring on his left hand.

Clearly, Snoke is a lefty because anything he does with the Force, he uses his left hand with the ring bulging out. He also uses his left hand to hit Kylo Ren across the face.

When Snoke is killed in The Last Jedi, his body is cut in half and the ring stays behind on the arm of the throne on his left hand.

First, we need to learn more about the ring. There was more information about it in Star Wars: The Last Jedi Visual Dictionary. The gold ring was inscribed with Four Sages of Dwartii.

Where else have seen the Four Sages of Dwartii? In Palpatine’s office.

According to description, the ring also contains obsidian cut from a cave under Vader’s fortress on Mustafar. That little nugget begs the question of who got the obisidian?

But both of those pieces of info show the connection to Palpatine and Vader.

Of course, the easy theory is that Snoke was being controlled by Palpatine through that ring. Glyphs can be powerful as many stories (non Star Wars included) have shown they can be binding or protection spells.

Palaptine is connected to both the Sages and Mustafar. So the theory goes, when Kylo cut Snoke in half, he also cut off Palpatine’s connection from where ever the old Sith is hiding. The only reason to bring this theory back up is the amount of attention the ring was paid in the recent comic.

Of course, it might be just art and we’re looking too much into it.

But what if it’s not?
