Search for magicians rings on this site. I've seen it discussed before. I think a few of the magic dealers have them. Some folks have had them made up by jewelers.

JFYI..they are called *wishbone* rings.
Don Alan, Fred Kaps, just to name 2, did wear a such one.

There used to be a tradition that you didn't buy a Magician's Ring for yourself. The only "honorable" way to obtain one was for it to be gifted by another Magician as a sign and acknowledgement of your skill and maturity as a Magical entertainer.

I've never heard of this tradition. Is this a tradition that you heard about, and if so from whom, or is there any documentation concerning this ceremonial exchange? Any of the past legendary masters involved in it?


I see that Ortiz wears one in At The Card Table. It makes for a rather clever gimmick for use with cards, coins and IT as well.

Isn't it supposed to be an "m" shaped fingerring?

Yes Dan, *M* for *Magician*, but when one is wearing it all ppl notice is a V-shape.

Mine isn't an M, it's a W I must be wearing it upside down. Of course since I am a member of the Wizards Club the W could also stand for Wizard.

Check with a jeweler. I have seen non-magicians wearing a wishbone ring.

What happened to the toothpicks and stuff you wrote Conus? That had confused me.

It is said that if you would cut the ring at one of the points, and open it up. It would be an 'M' for magician.

I think Daniel Garcia also wears a V shaped finger ring on his index or second finger. It's very cool. Like the previous post, I've not heard of the v shaped ring assoication with magicians until now.
