As part of the exchanging of gifts Mayor Matheson presented #2 of a limited edition of 100 replicas of Sauron’s gauntlet ring. The ring was made in the Jens Hansen workshop for the Nelson City Council and measures almost 2 inches in diameter, and is made of close to 3 oz. of sterling silver & richly plated in 18ct gold.

The Nelson region in the South Island of New Zealand was home to sets for the filming of Chetwood Forest, Rivendell and the Dimrill Dale exit from the Mines of Moria.
