Sanguinary Torque

Wondrous item, very rare (requires attunement)

This twisted silver neckband, set with stones of blood red, stanches your wounds. You automatically succeed on your first death saving throw if dropped to 0 hit points, and you have advantage on subsequent death saves. Ongoing damage to your hit points caused by weapons cease.

In addition, the sanguinary torque transmutes your blood into holy water as soon as it breaks the skin.

Attacker gains no benefit from using blood drain or similar attacks, such as healing or temporary hit points. Instead, they are affected as if struck with a vial of holy water. A creature harmed by holy water that uses a blood drain attack (such as a vampire’s necrotic bite) against you suffers double damage and must succeed on a DC 25 Constitution saving throw or be poisoned. At the end of each of its turns, the target can make another Constitution saving throw. On a success, the effect ends on the target. Any undead or evil outsider susceptible to holy water adjacent to you when you suffer any slashing damage suffers 1 point of damage.
