The word you looking for is

VERITAS (meaning truth)

The rebuses in order:

1)
Alien-ale=in
Targets-tart=ges
Tread-red=ta
INGESTA

2)
Blues-us=ble
Sticks-tick=ss
Heart-hat=er
BLESSER

3)
Casket-Cake=st
Pair-pi=ar
Dodecagon-decagon=do Comb-cob=m
STARDOM

4)
Cleaver-lever=Ca
Holster-hose=ltr
Table tops-tablets=op
CALTROP

5)
Dog ear-gear=Do
Plums-plus=m
Lattice-latte=ic
Starling-string=al
DOMICAL

6)
Coaster-coat=Ser
Carving-car=ving
SERVING

7)
Rowing-wing=Ro
Plaid-lid=pa
Blade-ad=ble
ROPABLE

The title refers to:

Making a chain by over lapping the suffixes of a word over the matching prefix of another word like so (where the end letters in italics overlap too):

SERVINGESTARDOMICALTROPABLESSER

enter image description here

By then taking away overlapping letters of the chain one gets VERITAS in a loop.

enter image description here

Hence we have found our ‘RING OF TRUTH
