Himber Ring (or Linking Finger Rings) was an idea from Persi Diaconis that was further developed into a routine by Richard Himber. After borrowing three separate rings, from three different spectators, the magician links them all together. They are then unlinked and passed back.

It has been featured by Harry Anderson, Jonathan Pendragon, and Kreskin.

Orson Welles created a version for his "Mercury Wonder Show" in which many rings, borrowed from audience, were linked together in a long chain.[1]
