The weave indicates that the gold and mahogany ring is a ring of treasure. All such rings can be used to summon a single common chest to store things and get them back.

Source

The gold and mahogany ring can be obtained from Niknax.

It comes as an artifact with one charge, but using it does not use up the charge, so you can keep using it.

Summoning

When you twist the ring of treasure you use up 100 gp, and if you pass the skillcheck then the chest appears.

You twist the gold and mahogany ring.
Light streams out of the gold and mahogany ring and forms the shape of a chest in the air.
After a moment, a huge gold-bound chest materialises with a satisfying thump.

When someone else twist a ring of treasure ring and pass the skillcheck the chest moves to that summoner's location.

The huge gold-bound chest lifts into the air slowly, then fades into nothingness.

It is also possible to drag the chest.

There is a log of who put or took things from the chest which you access by reading the chest.
