From D&D Wiki
Wondrous Item (ring), artifact (requires attunement)
The Black Band of Iron Blood was once a normal ring worn by a great wizard of legendary power, but in a fierce battle, the ring was soaked in the blood of some of the Archdevils, along with a few other powerful fiends, infusing the ring with some of their power. The ring appears as a charred band of iron.
