Help with Lockrings Compatibility!

I just bought a pair of Fulcrum Racing Zero's and I need help getting the proper lockring for my Shimano Cassette.

According to BikeTiresDirect, I need this particular lockring.

Why is this single piece of metal so expensive! Well, rants aside, is it possible to use this same lockring?

I was offered a Campy lockring online but I'm so confused, I don't understand the whole compatibility here. Campy lockring+Shimano freebody=success? Sounds terribly wrong...

Any guidance?

1) Which "shimano cassette" are you using
2) Teeth count of the smallest cog = ?

"Note: When using Shimano 11 tooth casettes, a Campy 11 tooth Lockring (see Related Products) is needed. Sold separately. The Campy 12 tooth lockring necessary for Shimano 12 tooth cassettes is included."

See what I'm getting at?

It is a special lockring designed to work with Fulcrum (Campagnolo) freehubs and the smaller diameter of the 11T cog. The standard Campy ring is too large and the threading is different from the Shimano ring.
