The mood ring is a SLASH'EM item. [1] It has no effect when worn or eaten, but can be read for a clue about your alignment. The message obtained by dropping a mood ring down a sink is "The sink looks groovy".

Reading Mood Rings

To read a mood ring, you must be wearing it, it must not be cursed, and you must not be blind or hallucinating. When read, the ring will glow a different color depending on your alignment:

Alignment Color
14 or more Green
4-13 Yellow
1-3 Orange
0 or less Red

Strategy

Because this ring provides no passive bonus of any kind, it is best to put it on, read it, then immediately take it off; else you suffer from unnecessary ring hunger.
