you could try some rubber gloves, to get a grip in combination of the freezer trick, the above link should do the trick

Mine was stuck last week and I did what Pedro suggests. Take a pair of pliers open them until they are holding the lock ring firmly with outward pressure and then turn clockwise.

Its always worth putting a little Vaseline on the threads, I do this on all my mods.

How often do you reapply the Vaseline? I have to start doing that. Every time a lock ring gets stuck I live in fear of damaging the button.

I use Vaseline too. It's the way to go.
On the downside, every kind of grease holds all particles/dust and bind them.
Just like a bicyclechain. You apply a thin film of colourless oil and 50km later you touch it and there is black smear. :)
On the other hand, you can clearly see it's time to clean.
When using the Caravela as main vape, i stuff it often through the day in the front pocket of my pants where she is collects fibres of garment too.
Leading to clean up after 2 or 3 days!
To remove the greasy Vaseline one should use rubbing alcohol. After that, reapply a thin film of Vaseline and assemble.
