As we march closer to the Holiday shopping season, we need ideas as to what we may want to buy our loved ones. Well, our friends at Weta Workshop in their most recent newsletter have given us several ideas on what from Middle-earth we can get.
Jens Hansen, the Makers of the World’s Most Famous Ring – The One Ring™ for The Lord of The Rings™ and The Hobbit™ trilogies – have come on board to support TheOneRing.net in our 2013 Pledge Drive! And that is not all! You can enter for a chance to win your own gold-plated The One Ring replica – Details below!
Out of all the jewellers in the world, Peter Jackson chose The Ringmaker Jens Hansen to make The One Ring™ for our favourite movies. Jens submitted 15 ring prototypes in a variety of weights and finishes, and from this extensive collection, the final Movie Ring design was selected. This design has now become the “World’s Most Famous Ring”.
The Jens Hansen team also created Vilya, the ring worn by Hugo Weaving as Elrond, and last year made a special commission of 12 rings for The Hobbit’s actors who played the dwarfs.
In the workshop in Nelson, New Zealand – the middle of Middle Earth – the Jens Hansen craftsmen make gold and silver The One Ring™ replicas and character rings, along with sought-after distinctive, Scandinavian-inspired jewellery.
And, because Jens Hansen loves us movie fans so much, they are running a competition for us. Click here to like them on Facebook to enter the draw to win your own gold-plated The One Ring replica, in your size choice with engraving or without. And, don’t forget to follow them on Tumblr and Twitter so you can follow all their news. Good luck! [Enter Today]

As we reported earlier, today is The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit day at Comic-Con 2012 (aka #HobbitCon) and LEGO® was kind enough to send us this exclusive image of a brand new ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey‘ Playset! The set is called ‘An Unexpected Gathering’ and features Bag End with six mini-figures. As you can see in the image above, we have Bofur holding an axe, Bombur with a sausage and knife, Dwalin wielding a really large weapon and knife, Balin with chalice, Gandalf the Grey with walking staff, and Bilbo Baggins. As you can see the set is highly detailed with greenery, vegetables and much more. From the looks of the image we’ll have a nice inside component to play with as well. Stay tuned as we report more from Comic-Con 2012! [Live Coverage]
