Hah... answered your own question... although it does mean that the ring wasn't *exactly* a bauble.
The problem I have with the Haversham-Thursday relationship was that it says somewhere that 'haversham and thursday were one of the greatest parnerships the bookworld had ever seen' (or something similar - in one of the chapter headers, I think) The problem is that they didn't actually do much together. Ok, Haversham rescued Thursday in an impressive way. Following H's death Thursday went on to prevent bad things happening... but the actual partnership - what of it?
That statement is either so deep it would take a lifetime to fully comprehend every particle of its meaning, or it is a load of absolute tosh. Which is it, I wonder?
