Although he was given 2 gold-plated finger rings when he was released, the only point in the movie where he can be seen wearing a ring is on stage at the Palace Hotel. This could be because the ring would cover up the 'K' in his 'J-A-K-E' tattoo. He has removed it by the time he is confronted by Camille.
