I can think of two reasons.

The first is that that's how the original devs decided to do it, probably thinking flavor-wise that amulets make a good stand-in for holy symbols (WIS) and impressive jewelry (CHA) and nobody ever bothered to change it.

The second is that WIS and CHA are less valuable than STR/DEX/CON so it's no big deal if they occupy a less-competitive slot than the ring slot. Of course this doesn't explain INT any.
