The Skull Ring (also called the Ring of Varda in the North American versions of Symphony of the Night and Cursed Ring in Circle of the Moon) is a Gold Ring with a Skull on it in Castlevania that increases many stats greatly.
In Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, it increases Attack by 10, Strength by 30 (resulting in a total effect of Attack+40), Intelligence by 30, Defense by 10, Constitution by 10 (resulting in a total defense boost of +14), and Luck by 5. It is a scaled up version of the Ring of Feanor, which increases each stat to a lesser degree without the same relative emphasis on each.
The ring is cursed in Castlevania: Circle of the Moon and later games and requires a luck sacrifice in order to gain the other stats. While it increases Strength and Defense by 30, it reduces Luck by 100. The ring increases many stats (Strength, Constitution, Intelligence, and Mind all by +6) in Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin, but reduces luck by 13, and also Curses the wearer, leaving him/her unable to use Subweaponry or Spells until the ring(s) are unequipped. Those who value the use of magic in combat, or those who prefer their luck at their best, would do well to leave the rings off, but for others, the drawbacks are not a problem, and they can use the ring's benefits to deadly advantage
