Rings of power are nothing new to fans of Middle-Earth: over the course of the story of The Hobbit, a certain One Ring is found by Bilbo Baggins. However, there are other rings that we will get to know during The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.  In the next few weeks, The Noble Collection will make us privvy to a few of those other rings by introducing five amazing collectible options: Lindir’s Ring, Elrond’s Council Ring, Elrond’s Riding Ring, Thorin’s Dwarven Silver Ring, and Thorin’s Silver Band. As with any of The Noble Collection’s items these rings are of superior quality and a must for any fan of Middle-Earth collection. Get a peek at all the ring offerings and pricing after the break.

Collecting The Precious: Are You a Super Collector?

I love Middle-earth. I also love collecting items representing that world. As you’ve probably noticed through the reviews here, I’ve got more than a few items in my collection. It helps bring the magic Tolkien created and Jackson adapted home along with smiles every time I look at my items.

Now, TORn, as part of our super-secret project, wants to showcase you and your collection!

Starting today, through to next Wednesday, we here at TORn will be collecting submissions in search of Ringer Super Collectors at large. What we need are three to four good pictures of you and your collection, along with a brief write-up about why you are a super collector (write-ups must be 500 words or less).

Email your pictures and write-up to Elessar@theonering.net. We’ll start going through the submissions and you never know — you just might see you and your collection posted soon!

Sneak Peek at the new Badali licensed “The Hobbit” line

Our friends at Badali Jewelry are giving our readers a rare sneak peek at one of the first items in their newly licensed “The Hobbit” line of jewelry: Thror’s Key!

“It is easy to forget the the events of The Hobbit were hinged on a very simple object, a secret key that would open a secret door.  This was Thrór’s Key.  Thorin’s Dwarven party desired to reclaim the Lonely Mountain from Smaug, The Dragon, more then anything.  The answer to the dwarves quest was a map, door and key created in secret by Thorin’s grandfather, Thrór.  Gandalf presents Thorin with this secret key when the party joins together at Bilbo Baggins home. “Here it is!” he said, and handed to Thorin a key with a long barrel and intricate wards, made of silver. “Keep it safe!”

Engraved on the barrel of the key is the same phrase written in Dwarvish runes that are found on Thrór’s map: “Five Feet High The Door, And Three May Walk Abreast.” The key will be available in 2 different sizes, a 1 7/8″ Sterling Silver Necklace and a 2 7/8″ White Bronze Necklace or Key Chain. Note that this product is not yet available on their website. A limited inventory will be available at Comic-Con, with online sales to follow.

Badali Jewelry at Comic-Con with TORn as guests!

Waaaay back at the dawn of TheOneRing.net (last century) Badali Jewelry was the very first sponsor of our enterprise website that dared to follow “The Lord of the Rings” movie trilogy when it was just a whisper on the wind. Since then the maker of officially licensed Middle-earth jewelry have been tight with the website. But this year at Comic-Con, TORn and Badali are getting even closer! Besides making amazing One Rings, they feature custom works spanning 22 specialized genre lines and they expanded space for this year’s show, allowing enough room to share with us! TORn will be hanging out for the duration of SDCC, so really, we can’t thank them enough for that. (We will also have staff hanging with our friends at the Weta Workshop booth, more on that in another story!)

We checked in to see what they had going on for the show and it turns out they have some great new items, including plenty of “Hobbit” related stuff and some significant discounts. Here is what they had to say:

Our main announcement is that we will be hosting TORn at our booth this year, but of course, you already know that. ;) We are spreading our wings into two booth spaces this year so that means more room for people to peruse and have a friendly chat with the BJS Inc and TORn crews. We are in our traditional location of Booth #530 and now also #532.

We will also be debuting 3 brand new Officially Licensed The Hobbit pieces; Sterling Silver Bag End Door Necklace, White and Yellow Bronze Large Bag End Necklace or Key Chain, and Thror’s Key, used to open the Secret Way into The Lonely Mountains. These pieces are so detail oriented you have to see them with your own eyes to fully enjoy them. (more…)
