Crown of Thorns Cilice Ring. For centuries some members of the Roman Catholic church have practiced corporal mortification through the use of a cilice belt, or metal spiked chain, as a constant reminder of Christ's sacrifice to the world. The belt is typically worn around the thigh.
This ring is made from sterling silver and sharpened copper nails and works by compression. It's pretty uncomfortable, yet I can't seem to stop trying it on.
