+<magnitude> <skill> Ranks
Bonus ranks boost the rank of skills. All jewelry offers bonus ranks, with rings boosting spells and abilities while necklaces boost perks. Skills you haven't yet unlocked will not receive a bonus, meaning you cannot gain access to a spell or ability via bonus ranks and bonus ranks to a locked perk will not offer any bonus. However, you will benefit from a skill boosted above its highest unlockable rank.
