I have a stolen silver ring. Does it affect people's reaction to me if I am wearing it?

No. But if you commit a crime and the guards catch you, they will keep all your stolen goods.

I found that if you got to the grey quarter in Windhelf, the shop there will take them off you – user48053 May 5 '13 at 14:12

No, they won't. But watch what you take; if you take highly valuable items or many moderately valuable items then you may find yourself being attacked by hired mercenaries with a contract to kill you. You will find the reason the mercenaries were hired and the name of who hired them in the letter. Also, getting caught doing any crime will result in the items you have stolen being taken back.

Getting arrested will cause the items to be taken away. You can always fight your way out of being caught in the act of a crime. – Xantec Jan 15 '12 at 7:33
The "I'd rather die then go to jail option doesn't mean fight, you can try running too – CHARLO Jan 15 '12 at 11:00
Mercenaries, they can try to kill me. – Marcelo Jan 17 '12 at 19:24

If you get caught doing something, guards will take it. Then, what I do, is I just load back a save so I don't lose my stuff.
