To get the Shadow Blade Ring in Baldur’s Gate 3 you need to complete the Find Arabella’s Parents quest, and then speak to Arabella at your camp to get the ring as a reward.

If you saved Arabella and sided with the Emerald Grove in Act 1, then Arabella will appear again in Act 2. You can find her in Reithwin Town, just north of the central plaza outside the entrance to the graveyard. Speak with her and you’ll discover that she and her parents got separated. You should encourage her to go to your camp and promise to look for her parents. Significantly, if you have already found her parents, DO NOT tell her about them yet. Send her to your camp and wait to tell her there.

You can find her parents nearby, inside the infirmary at the House of Healing. Sadly, they have already died and there is nothing more you can do. Next, return to camp and find Arabella over by Withers. Tell her about her parents as gently as you can. Arabella may tell you in the moment to go away, but come back after a Long Rest or two and speak to her again.

Withers will counsel her through her anger and grief. You will receive a new unique spell from her called Arabella’s Shadow Entangle. Additionally, the quest will complete and you will receive the Shadow Blade Ring.
