Magical rings

It seems a little odd to me that magical necklaces, bracelets, earrings, crowns, brooches and amulets should all count as "Wondrous Items", and that magical rings should get their own category.

Is there a reason why rings shouldn't be folded into wondrous items along with all the other jewellery, beyond the fact that Tolkien made magical rings iconic? Or why the magic ring category shouldn't be expanded to include other items of jewellery?

I'd appreciate people's thoughts on this.
