OriginEdit

The Rosenberg's were tried and executed on charges of treason and espionage during the Cold War. Julius was an electrical engineer charged with giving nuclear secrets to the Soviets, however it has been shown that the information that he did pass on was of minimal priority. New information has come out that Ethel had no involvement in the espionage attempt, and that the testimony against her from her brother was merely an attempt to save the life of his own wife whom was part of the plot.

Despite the furious questioning by Federal law enforcement and the prosecuting attorney, both pleaded the Fifth Amendment, giving them the right to stay silent and not incriminate themselves.

The trial and execution gathered much media attention, as charges of treason had not been levied since the Civil War. Their execution was considered a gross miscarriage of justice, and a blatant example of the terrors of McCarthyism.

EffectsEdit

Those that wear the rings will be able to withstand torture and interrogation without revealing secrets of admitting anything. It is suggested to wear only Julius' ring unless necessary, as wearing Ethel's ring causes the user to be blamed for something the wearer didn't do.

CollectionEdit

Agents Secord and St. Clair were able to obtain the rings and occasionally used them when going undercover in the event of capture.
