Does anyone know if there are magnetic finger rings for purchase?

I have seen something like what you are decribing. I believe it is called the Elohim Ring, and I have seen it available from Hank Lee: http://www.magicfact.com and The Trickery Magic Shop http://www.thetrickery.com

It is basically a finger ring with a magnet inside it. It is around $65. Hope that helps.

I think there's also one called the "Omega Ring," basically a signet style ring with a magnet on the bottom. I've seen ones with it behind the signet, but that requires you to turn the ring around to use it. This one doesn't have to be rotated, but on the down side, I think the magnet is visible on the palm side.

Here's another idea: Buy an inexpensive ring that has an available hollow space under the top area; some rings have them, while others such as wedding bands obviously don't.

Buy a small rare earth magnet from Radio Shack or an online magnet dealer, and hot-glue it in its secret spot, hidden in the ring. When you need the magnet, turn the ring around on your finger. The ring will ideally now look like a wedding band from the front, while the part on the palm side of your hand is available for magnet-requiring effects.

Can You get rare earth magnets from Radio Shack? How big? and if so who will do my job for me as I recover from the severe kicking I give myself.
Magic is doing improbable things with odd items that, under normal circumstances, would be unnessecary and quite often undesirable.

Elohim Ring is very good, I like it very much. Very smooth and streamlined design. I bought it from Hokus Pokus.

I agree with Jerdun.
I bought a couple from a Flea Market. I glued one under the signet. The other I flattened the bottom and glued one there with crazy glue.
They both work fine.

A dremel tool with a metal engraving tool will let you carefully hollow out a spot on the ring and that magnet will be there forever.
I buy my rare earth magnets for my chop cups from a guy on ebay. They are tiny and cost about 18 cents a piece. Yes, you can get them from Radio Shack and they are fine magnets. They cost a LOT more though, still only about a buck a piece.

Great ideas! I like the idea of using an inexpensive ring and a rare earth Magnet.

Thanks
