Weta has released the next piece in their new Lord of the Rings jewelry line – The One Ring.
The One Ring was featured in the Lord of the Rings trilogy and was created by Jens Hansen – Gold and Silversmith of Nelson, New Zealand.
The ring is crafted in 18K gold plated Tungsten Carbide and made to the exact same proportions as the movie prop. The ring verse in Elvish tengwar is engraved on the outside and inside of the ring. The ring comes nestled inside a blue velvet-lined round walnut wood box that also features the ring script around the outside. The Lord of the Rings logo is featured on the outside lid of the box, with the Weta logo and Jens Hansen’s signature on the inside.
The One Ring comes in 5 sizes – US 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11 – and buyers need to be aware that Tungsten cannot be resized so care is needed when ordering to assure they have picked the correct size. The ring is only USD$99 and ships direct from New Zealand.
Another item that Weta is offering to accompany The One Ring is a replica of the silver chain given to Frodo in Rivendell to hold the ring.
The Sterling Silver Chain of Frodo Baggins is 25 inches (65 cm) long, crafted in Sterling Silver and features a unique S-shaped clasp, allowing the wearing to adjust the chain to any length they wish. The chain is USD$99 and is also the created by Jens Hansen.
As with the Elven Leaf Brooch, both The One Ring and the Sterling Silver Chain of Frodo Baggins will be offered in small numbers. Buyers are urged to order sooner, rather than later, to assure they don’t miss out.
