One Ring to rule them all.
One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all
and in the darkness bind them."
The One Ring created for The Lord of the Rings trilogy was designed and made by Jens Hansen - Gold & Silversmith of Nelson, New Zealand (Middle-earth).
Weta is pleased to be working with Jens Hansen to produce The One Ring in gold plated Tungsten Carbide. It's crafted to the exact shape, thickness and proportions of the original movie prop. The 18K gold plating and the significant weight of the Tungsten now ensures that you can own a One Ring that looks and feels absolutely right.
Jens Hansen's reputation as a brilliant ringmaker was one of the main reasons he was approached to make the One Ring for The Lord of the Rings. Today Jens Hansen's son, Halfdan Hansen, continues his father's legacy, and supervises the production of The One Ring for us. Find out more about Jens Hansen.
This gorgeous piece of jewellery has the famous words in ancient Elvish runes delicately engraved on the inside and outside of the ring, as well as on the beautiful wooden gift box made from natural Walnut timber. The box can be displayed open thanks to an ingenious and almost invisible elastic hinge or closed with a strong rare-earth magnet.
The lid features a The Lord of the Rings logo on the outside and the logos of Weta and Jens Hansen on the inside. The inside bottom of the box is lined with blue velvet.
Like anything made from natural timber, variations in grain and colour will occur and the colour may also change over time. This is an entirely natural process.
We can also offer separately a Sterling Silver chain - the 25 inch (65 cm) long chain upon which Frodo Baggins carried the One Ring in The Lord of the Rings. Also designed by Jens Hansen, this chain, with its unique S-shaped clasp is an exact replica of the chain that features in the close-up shots in the movies.

Tungsten is a natural element which has many unique properties. It has the highest melting point of all non-alloyed metals and is extremely hard - approximately four times harder than Titanium. Tungsten is most well known for its virtually scratchproof qualities. Even in high impact environments, tungsten will not scratch.
The product you have purchased from Weta is a Gold Plated product - with reasonable wear and tear the gold finish should retain its lustre for at least 2 years.
Tungsten carbide is 100% hypoallergenic and will not produce skin irritation or discoloration. Tungsten does not react to sunlight, salt water, chlorine or anything that the body emits.
Tungsten carbide rings require other metals to be used as a "binder", in the case of the One Ring, nickel is used. Tungsten bonds to the nickel molecules, preventing them from leeching into the skin. This is why Tungsten is hypoallergenic.
We cannot accept responsibility for wrong size ordered. Please double-check all measurements before you order.

Of all the LOTR collectibles I have, the One Ring was a piece I've never purchased. I almost bought a similar ring from another manufacturer, but held off just long enough for Weta to announce this for sale. I bought two, one for display and one to wear. LOVE them. Hide.
