Blinded in one eye in a fight

My story takes place in an alternative world that has mid-18th century technology and in a place similar to England.

I have a male character, 22 years-old, who is punched in his right eye by someone wearing a ring.

Could a ring, similar in shape/details/etc. to this cause enough damage (such as a retinal detachment) resulting in complete blindness in one eye?
What effects would a retinal detachment have on eye movements?

I Googled things like ‘blunt eye trauma', 'effects of retinal detachments' and 'causes of blindness'.
