So i wouldn't be surprised if they relaxed on the ring issue as well.

Women's clothing was an issue of decency and (as surprising as it is for people unfamiliar with Islam) protecting women from men (sexual assault, rape). Gold rings, on the other hand, are considered Haram, and are for that reason not permitted.
