The Riddle of the Double Ring is the tenth volume in Ms. Sutton's Judy Bolton mystery series. Judy Bolton was a rival to Nancy Drew, but her series stopped being published in 1967. This book takes place after Judy has graduated from Farringdon Girls' High School.

Judy Bolton has two serious boyfriends. One is rich Arthur Farringdon-Pett, engineer, the brother of Judy's friend, Lois. Judy and her family live in the town of Farringdon. Judy's brother, Horace, is a reporter for the local newspaper, 'The Farringdon Daily Herald'. That newspaper is edited by Richard Thorton Lee, father of lovely Lorraine Lee. Not only is Lorraine Lois' other best friend, Lorraine is in love with Arthur. Lois, Lorraine, and Arthur have known each other since childhood.

Judy's other boyfriend, Peter Dobbs, is a lawyer who is currently working at a law firm in New York. His sister, Honey, Judy's best friend, is attending art school in New York.

Judy goes on a picnic with Lois and Arthur. Lorraine was invited along, but turned down the invitation. Lorraine and Judy both have a spinel ruby friendship ring that was a gift from Lois. Lorraine borrows Judy's ring, with her permission.
