Ring on Wand, or Ring on Stick, is a trick in which the magician causes a ring to penetrate a magic wand, usually while its ends are held by members of the audience. The trick was a favorite of many of the great magicians of the twentieth century, including Charles Bertram, Nate Leipzig, and Dai Vernon. An old trick, it has been adapted more recently using a pencil, a pen, and a spoon.
