Most magic moments don’t last long.

BUT the impossible moment in DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER lasts FOREVER. It leaves your spectators with an incredible object that they can keep for the rest of their lives.

DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER uses two cards: A red ace, and a black two. You show the backs and faces of the cards, and then you put the two in your spectator’s hand. Then you MAGICALLY PEEL THE DIAMOND OFF THE RED ACE, and MAGICALLY BOND THE RED PIP ONTO THE MIDDLE OF THE BLACK TWO. The spectator gets to keep BOTH cards.

She can look at them for hours, but she’s not going to find anything.

Rick put all his work into the special gimmicks—produced by the U.S. Playing Card Company—so the cards do all the sneaky stuff for you. You can focus on the performance and the magic, without worrying about complex moves.

When you buy DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER, Rick will not only teach you his signature performance, he’ll also show you a way to perform the trick with SIGNED CARDS and a way to make the ace VISUALLY POP onto the two.

But really, Rick’s signature handling is all you need. You can do it anywhere, any time. No table, no fancy setup, no deck needed—just the DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER cards.

That’s all you need to create this eternal eye-popping card miracle.

In their hands MIRACLE Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 14th, 2018
Pros:
Incredibly easy effect to perform
Gaffs do all the work for you
COMES WITH REFILLS (20+ performances if you choose to hand out the cards)
Magic happens IN THEIR HANDS
Gimmicks are well made and on Mandarin Back Stock
POWERFUL Effect for your spectator

Honestly there are no cons to this effect. This effect is simple and to the point. Spectators love this effect and it leaves them with an impossible souvenir. Pure magic. Special way for them to remember you and relive that magic moment. Do not let the simplicity of the effect deter you. This effect will not fool magicians, but why does that matter? We do magic for spectators NOT magicians. And guess what? Spectators LOVE THIS! Worth the money if you like what you see, you will not be disappointed! Well done Ricky!

I was provided a copy of this trick to review.

Rick Lax has a history of releasing products that require the use of specially printed cards to produce a unique and impossible memento or moment of magic. I have his "Contact" trick which gets tons of millage, so I was interested in checking this out.

What you get: A deck of specially printed cards (on maiden back) so you can do this trick and access to a video download. The video download is about 20 minutes long and goes over a performance with the explanation of the routine and variations.

The Trick: Read the description to see. The trick is not necessarily visual, however, the souvenir is distinct and something that can be examined over and over. There are variations of the trick where the change happens visually, so you can really take some of those sleights from your toolbox to apply it to your performance.

You only need the cards provided to do this trick, so you do not need a deck, and I would recommend not using a deck to keep things open and fair looking.

The cards are needed to do this trick since the final products need to be examined. The signed version is pretty awesome and will leave another awesome souvenir.

There are minimal slights used and you will be able to perform this decently within the few minutes watching the DVD. There are a few moments where you can mess up, but they are easily fixed with practice.

I do not have many cons to say about this trick without getting overly picky, it is what it shows and it is workable and practical. You need the extra trick cards, but then again, it is a trick impossible to do without them.

Another solid release by Lax and everyone who helped develop this.

Great Closer! Thank you Rick Lax and Penguin Magic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 14th, 2018
If you are in need of a great closer or just a wonderful stand alone, this is the trick for you. Rick Lax and his friends have created a true gem in 'Diamonds are Forever'. The handling is clean and concise. The variations that are suggested are really good. The ability to work with gaffed cards and still have a spectator sign the card is powerful and convincing. I also appreciate that the USPCC has taken the time to produce such quality cards that match and can be included with my daily use Maiden Back Bicycle deck (See 'Marked Cards').
The nuances taught in the handling of this trick not only make this a great presentation, but are things that based on solid principles of magic and psychology that you can use throughout your adventure into the world of magic. Rick gives you straight forward, clear instruction and handling tips. This is a winner and I am integrating this into my routine immediately. Check it out, I think you'll find it to be valuable and an easy addition to your routine.

Good But Not Great Report this review

Only 4 stars because the final [move] is very obvious and not shown in the demo.

I just recieved this and ohhh my goodness, it is glorious! As a card collector, it broke my heart having to open this deck, so I suggest buying two. Simply stunning, from the tuck case to the brilliance Rick has thought of in this gaffed deck. Simply amazing to look at and I damn near fooled myself in the mirror! This basically does all the hard work for you. I look forward to the next deck Rick, even though this will keep me occupied for a while. For the card collector out there, it is worth the money just for this deck alone! Glorious!!!

If I would have known you have to do a switch with a regular ace I wouldn’t of gotten this. The video false advertised saying you only use 2 cards. I love rick lax’s tricks but when a demo lies , not so great.

Five Stars But....... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 25th, 2018
So everything you’ve heard is true. Easy handling and clean up, and Rick does a great job with his teachings of multiple handilings. Definitely a worker for a strolling magician or for multiple venues, but I do magic at work, so I see the same people all the time - so a trick like this gets a play and then I have to worry that coworkers will compare cards and lessen the impact.

My only suggestion: make the gimmick with the additional pip in multiple numbers and suits, and maybe even other Aces. It would be nice to have the ability to then perform this when working a room more than once (safely).

Once again Rick is brining me cold hard cash to my restaurant performances with this amazing trick in the form of “that was amazing, here’s a tip and thank you!”
Not kidding. Got the trick yestrady afternoon and performed it that night.

Rick’s explanation and follow ups are great.
Super video work!
Thank you so much for those 2 years of your life

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 15th, 2018
This is by far my new favorite card trick. I've been performing magic for 18 years, and by far one of the best of its kind. The best part is, they get to keep the cards as a souvenir!I have performing magic for my new friend at work for the past 3 months, including here then there, two card monte, the biddle trick, bending a signed coin, even mint box, and after i showed her this one, she said it was her favorite. Rick Lax has done it again!

You need this effect. It absolutely floors every spectator I have performed it for. You can hand out both cards at the end and everything can be kept by he spectator. This truly is an effect that they will never forget. It is not difficult at all to perform which means you can focus on your presentation and make this beautiful.
