I arrived into this room on the level via the stairs, at first the ring was not visible, then I heard a door burst open, then the ring becomes visible, then the vortex becomes visible. Perhaps the ring's a mimic (I'm not going to hang around to find out since I'm low on HP)?

edit: decided to hang around, survived, it was a normal ring object, not a mimic.
I think it could legitimately happen that way - fire vortices emit light, IIRC, which means that although the ring was outside your lit range, the vortex illuminated it for you shortly before coming into view itself.
