Your tongue may have an allergic reaction to the ring.

Allergy can develop many months or years after first exposure to an allergen. I am sure you have heard of surgeons who have come down with symptoms of allergy to latex after using latex gloves without any problem for many years. Try antihistamine to see if the swelling will go down. If not, you may have an infection.
