If you really wanna make this ring sizzle as a trick, buy Kenton Knepper's "The Ring". With this
ring, and Kenton's manuscript, you'll have your spectator in a trance before you can say, ummmm. . .
Kenton's original marketed trick came with two rings, so check on the availability of
those first. Personally, I can't find the set from Kenton anywhere, so this is a nice add-on.

As a mentalist, I'm always carrying weird magical conversation pieces.
I think people might
underestimate this ring. The effect is so strong that even when you know how it works, you still
can't escape the illusion.
I keep it conveniently around for the right moment because it
makes such a great convincer when doing something in a hypnotic vein.
There is only one way
I'd improve this - have a duplicate ring that doesn't have the illusion. Imagine after the spec sees
this effect, then you apparently pass it around for inspection. If you do that, you owe me a free
sample to try out! You *know* it would kick butt.
The ring works as advertised. It appears to zip apart as you rotate the ring one way and zip
together as the ring is rotated the other way.
I have the "gold" ring. When brand new it
looks beautiful. It sparkles like an 18 karat gold ring. However, you should know that the gold
plating wears off. The ring's appearance is not terribly nice as the plating wears off. But wait!
There's good news. When the plating is completely gone, the ring looks as though it is made of
silver or white gold. I've had people notice it and find it quite interestng. Mine fits my
ring-finger and I wear it as my wedding ring.
This ring is flashy, kinda small but will fit any pinky guaranteed and I use this for misdirection
to people mainly or just like to show people. I recommend buying this because it is really neat and
This ring blows. Most of the people in the forum for this ring also says it sucks. Not worth the
money, rather get a card trick. DO NOT GET IT!
This trick gets wonderful reactions, and is all around great. This is a must by. Get it now!
This thing's not really magic.. as the title say.. it's just an opticle illusion... and it doesn't
look like it shrinks and expands, it looks like it gets fatter and skinier(from the side)...
...it does trip you out. I showed this girl today and she thought it was pretty cool too!
This thing is awesome! Buy it!
IT Would not be my first choice but it is a good buy considering it is 25 carrot gold and an amazing
little thing to show your girlfriend or friends. It really does seem like the ring images are
shrinking and growing good buy cool little item to add to your collection.
