Pestilence's ring is one of the Four Horsemen's rings, specifically Pestilence's. It is Pestilence's power source, and it's part of the collective key with the other rings to Lucifer's cage.


Pestilence's horseman ring manifests as a small silver ring adorned with a round green stone, and serves as Pestilence's means of channeling his powers when he manifests in physical human form. When activated by being twisted on its wearer's finger, Pestilence's ring causes all humans (and graceless angels) within a certain radius to fall cripplingly if not fatally sick with all kinds of different ailments. However, the ring's effects will immediately ebb away if it is removed. (Two Minutes to Midnight)

Pestilence's ring can also be combined with the other three horsemen's rings to form the key to Lucifer's cage. (Two Minutes to Midnight)


During the Apocalypse, when Pestilence was at the Serenity Valley Nursing Home in Davenport, Iowa, he activated his ring against Sam and Dean Winchester, affecting them and an entire wing of the home with multiple painful diseases, until Castiel arrived and managed to cut Pestilence's ring finger off, claiming Pestilence's ring for Team Free Will. (Two Minutes to Midnight)

Afterwards, the Four Horsemen's rings were combined to form the key to Lucifer's cage, (Two Minutes to Midnight) and Sam successfully used the combined rings to send himself and Lucifer (along with Michael) into the cage. (Swan Song) It is unknown what happened to Pestilence's ring after this, although it is known that Death's ring was buried in the grounds of the Singer Auto Salvage Yard. (Appointment in Samarra)
