King Solomon’s ring and Arab folkstory

When I saw the Lord of the Ring , ! I looked at my sister and said isn’t the story similar with Prophet Sulayman’s ring (king Solomon) ?and she replied ,, I think so…

The ring is very famous folkstory in Arabian world, I am not sure about Hebrew (Jew culture)

This legend is especially developed by Arabic writers, who said that the ring, on which was engraved “the Most Great Name of God,” and which was given to Solomon from heaven, was partly brass and partly iron. With the brass part of the ring Solomon signed his written commands to the good Jinn, and with the iron part he signed his commands to the evil Jinn, or devils. 

jewishencyclopedia indicate: “The Arabic writers declare also that Solomon received four jewels from four different angels, and that he set them in one ring, so that he could control the four elements.”
In one of the Arabian Nights’ Entertainments, an evil jinn is described as being imprisoned in a copper bottle for 1,800 years by a lead seal stamped by the ring. King Solomon who “sent his minister…to seize me, and his vizier had me bound and brought against my will to stand before the prophet [Solomon] as a suppliant.” When the jinn stubbornly refused to proclaim his faith in God, Solomon had him imprisoned in the jar, which was sealed with lead, stamped with the royal ring inscribed with God’s name, and cast into the ocean.
It is related in the “Arabian Nights” that Sindbad, in his seventh voyage, presented Harun al-Rashid cup on which the “table of Solomon” was represented; and some think that this was the figure of “Solomon’s seal” (I don’t remember it)
