A GM could always have the rings deactivate at the "demise" of the
undead it was animating, therefore becoming nothing more than a 20
copper piece trinket.
Just an idea

Perhaps if there were only one ring to power them and it was on the finger of the creater/sorcerer and it was psychic/magically linked to the 20 copper piece trinket link, then if you killed the zombie you got nothing, but if you got the sorcerer, you got the $30,000 ring.

If you needed to keep fatigue cost and the dollar cost equivelant(one $30,000 per zombie), perhaps you need to enchant each gem (one gem per zombie) on the ring, and also bypassing the rule of five (but perhaps not.)
