Retainer ring for Shift boot?

So I used the original shift boot and restored it with an aftermarket shift knob and the DDMworks shift adaptor. the boot is just pinched at the top and clamped between a nut and the shift ball. Ive seen so many that you slip the boot top through a ring and loop it, then clamp to the ball(This is what I want) but I cannot find the ring. Any suggestions?

I'm not quite sure what you're asking, but maybe you could use a zip-tie?

You can always go on a merry-go-round and get a brass ring....perhaps

No, looking for a ring or something that will look nice or not be visible to hold the boot in place. Ive seen them, ive owned them...I cant find where to buy one. lol
picture shows how the boot is crimped under the ball. it works, but not how id like to do it.
