Wearing a ring of stealth gives you extrinsic stealth. If you are polymorphed into a creature that is capable of eating jewelry and the ring is of suitable material, you may eat this ring and may gain stealth as an intrinsic.

In previous versions of NetHack, putting on a ring of stealth did not give any special message to indicate that you gained stealth (unlike elven boots or elven cloak), making it more difficult to identify. This is no longer true since NetHack 3.6.0, where a ring of stealth will behave in exactly the same way as elven gear in this regard.

You removed your ring of stealth, and didn't have any other source of stealth. (The ring is auto-identified.)
The sink seems to blend into the floor for a moment.
You dropped the ring down a sink. (The ring is auto-identified.)
