Back to my favorite school playground

I haven't been out metal detecting this year, too distracted by other projects.  It was a pleasant summer evening and I thought I would do some detecting at my favorite high school playground which never disappoints.  I dug up $0.88 in change, a couple of interesting rings and a strange item that looks like it has a function of some kind.

The ring on the left looks like it has an ankh symbol, while the one on the right has fake diamonds but the ring itself is copper which is an unusual combination

I have no idea what this bizarre object is.  It looks vaguely like an eccentric ship steering wheel but perhaps it has some other significance symbolically.
