The Time Lords gave the Fourth Doctor a Time Ring to return to Nerva Beacon after carrying out a mission to prevent the creation of the Daleks. (Genesis of the Daleks) The temporal distortion caused by The Doctor’s actions on Skaro disrupted the Time Ring, scattering The Doctor and his companions across the Adelphine Cluster. After peace was established in the region, the Time Lords gave The Doctor a new Time Ring. (A Device of Death) When The Doctor and his companions finally returned to Nerva Beacon, the Time Ring disappeared, much to the astonishment of Harry Sullivan, who had wanted to have it as a memento. (Revenge of the Cybermen)

The renegade Time Lady Sartia left Gallifrey using a Time Ring. Like The Doctor’s TARDIS, the Time Ring was an antique. (The Skin of the Sleek)

An old man (in reality a member of the Great Houses fleeing the War) carried a Time Ring inscribed with Greek-seeming letters and an ouroboros. He used it to travel to Roma I, where he appeared in the busy Roman Forum. Marcus Americanius Scriptor used the “bracelet” to explore the Known Worlds, building the Empire of Empires and leading their war against the Greater German Reich. (Warlords of Utopia)

The Tenth Doctor was forced to give an old Time Ring he found in his TARDIS to a Dalek in exchange for it sparing Earth. Later, Kate Yates used the Time Ring to put a force field up around The Dalek. After that, she used her Dalek knowledge to set the Time Ring to self-destruct. The Time Ring’s destruction caused a warp implosedition, imploding The Dalek into atoms and making all the windows in a twenty-mile radius shatter. (I Am a Dalek)

A Time Ring was used by Harmonious 14 Zink to travel through time “righting wrongs” wherever he and his wife went. This Time Ring was used during and after the events on Erratoon by Zink and Zara to aid in her search for the Key to Time. (The Prisoner’s Dilemma) After taking the segment of the Key on Mars, Zara took Zink’s Time Ring from him and used it to travel to Safeplace and to Isskar’s ship on her own to continue her quest. (The Judgement of Isskar) She used it again when she was a passengeron the Eschaton and during the conflict between the White Guardian and the Black Guardian on Chaos. (The Chaos Pool)
