I see two concentric insulated wire rings,
 a gap breaking the circumference of both,
 in between the rings a dielectric. 

The larger broken ring's charge is positive, the smaller radii ring is
negative. A spark must jump criss-crossing the circumference gap, to
oppositely charged wires, a helical current flows through the wires. And
also as a magnetic bonus, the dipoles in the dielectric rotate (displacement
current) creating a net contributing magnetic moment :-)
