All ascended rings and accessories come with an infusion slot. Ascended rings can be upgraded in the Mystic Forge to infused or attuned versions. Once upgraded to one of these two versions, you can upgrade them to the other one as well. Each upgrade adds one additional infusion slot to the ring for a maximum of three. Ascended amulets come with an enrichment slot instead of an infusion slot.
With the exception of various trinkets, all ascended trinkets are unique, meaning two identically named trinkets can not be equipped at the same time. However, for any given set of attributes there are usually multiple equivalent rings or accessories (with different names) that can be used together. Also, for the purposes of uniqueness, infused and attuned versions of rings count as different items, so if you accidentally buy two identical rings you can upgrade one of them to avoid this limitation.
Ascended trinkets can be obtained in a variety of ways. They cannot be crafted.

Trinkets with selectable prefixes
The following trinkets allow a one-time attribute selection from a range of options defined by their prefix family.
- ^ Formerly of Explorer prefix, transformed into prefix selection after all prefixes that included Magic Find were discontinued.
- ^ Formerly of Wayfarer and Soldier prefix, transformed into prefix selection after all prefixes that included Magic Find were discontinued.
- ^ a b The selected attributes can be reset with a Bloodstone Capacitor purchased from Scholar Rakka.
- Many ascended trinkets, especially those with predefined prefixes, come in multiple varieties that are identical with the exception of their names and icons. This is a remnant from before the July 26, 2016 update when infusions and their slots were separated into different subtypes (offensive, defensive, utility, versatile) and each individual trinket provided a different type of infusion slot. Just as well; by having two items with the same predefined prefix, it continues to be possible to equip two items with both the same number of infusion slots and the same attributes.
