The planetary ring around D'Qar.

A planetary ring (or simply ring) was a circular band of small bodies orbiting around a planet in a flat disc-shaped region.[1] Planetary rings could be formed from the remnants of satellites, such as the silica ring of the planet Lah'mu, which were created after one of its moons was pulverized.[2] The rings revolving around Geonosis[3] and Bothawui were rocky in nature,[4] while the planet Minfar had a ring made of ice.[5] Planets could have multiple sets of rings, exemplified by a gas giant in the Unknown Regions.[6]

Although ring systems could constitute navigational hazards,[7] some were mined for metal ore.[8] The rings of the gas giant Hudalla were some of the largest in the galaxy.[1] The ring of the planet Tiferep Major was disrupted when the wreckage-prison Accresker Jail fell through it.[9]
