Absolutely! You wring maximum impact out of this effect with a borrowed ring, preferably a wedding band. A ring with a heavy stone will throw the balance off and you will feel gravity pull the heavier part of the ring downward as you slide it on the wand or stick. This might not bother some but it bugs me. I suppose it's alright to use your own silver or gold band provided the spectator is allowed to thread it on the wand/stick at least once at the beginning. Of course, it won't stay that way for long.

I perform this all the time with my own ring. I was tired of the flimsy thin multiply puzzle multiple like rings. I wanted a ring that does the job. because the ring and stick are examinable no effect is lost. one of my favorate routines.

Let's not forget John Carney's reworking with a straw.

I learned Jim Ryan's version from Jerry Mentzer's Magic With Finger Rings. Excellent responses to the routine!
