Nobody understood the significance of the ring yet. Bilbo thought it was a fine ring that could make him invisible. He used it well but did not tell anyone of its existance at first. This was the first clue that the ring was more than just a ring of invisibility. Bilbo was keeping it secret because the ring wanted him to. This was not understood until Gandalf confirmed what the ring was in 'The Fellowship of the Ring'.
