Wearing a ring causes your body to retain a very small bit more heat, amirite?

Wouldn't it give up more heat bc the conductive ring would lose heat faster and suck up the heat from your body?

By that same logic you would lose a lot of heat wearing a suit of armour and I'm sure that's not the case

Usually they also had a lot of wool underpadding and leathers acting as a barrier. If that armor was skin on metal they would have felt the cold, and the heat. Metal plate armor isn't just metal though, it's an external extra layer.

Metal lets heat right through, in and out.

Under a suit of armour is usually a padded jacket. Its be like wearing two hoodies and two pairs of swrat pants and carrying around a load of steel with you. You're definitely gonna get hot and sweatty under there regardless of how efficient the armour is at sapping the heat away

Quite the opposite actually.

Fingers with rings are a liability in icy environments, double jepardy really, as the ring not only slightly cuts off circulation but it acts as a heat sink.

Unless this ring is plastic, a string band or a kind of leather thing.

I'll have to find one to wear...
