I suspect that the innards of the human body will have a relatively low resistance than the skin due to their moisture content. If this is true, it explains the skin getting burned. Perhaps if the inner part of the ring contacts a moist, inner part of the body of a relatively intermediate resistance, it may provide a current path and also drop a significant voltage.

Just to insert my two cents here:

I saw on my local news that some defibrillators cover the backs of the two hands of a person instead of using chest paddles (no need to take off their shirt, simply stick the two pads on the hands). Now, this avoids the problem of nipple rings, but if the victim was wearing rings on their fingers......
