Artists from the Nelson region donated works and we were please to offer #89 in the Limited Edition of 100 Dark Lord Ring replicas. Originally made as Sauron's ring in the movie the ring measures almost 2 inches in diameter, and is made of close to 3 oz. of solid 925 Sterling Silver and is richly plated in 18ct Yellow Gold. Individually stamped with our Jens Hansen hallmarks and edition number #89, the Ring had its own Matching Numbered Certificate of Authenticity, and the numbered rimu presentation box was autographed by Academy Award winning Art Director Dan Hennah.
The Jens Hansen team are proud to announce the creation of the first completely accurate replica of the ring originally created by us and depicted in the LOTR movie trilogy as Vilya. In the Tolkien books Vilya is the name of the Elven Ring of Power worn by Elrond (Hugo Weaving).
The original ring for the movie was created by Thorkild Hansen at the request of Peter Jackson's Art Direction team.
A limited edition Jens Hansen movie Ring replica will be on display in July and August in the Morris Graves Museum of Art, thanks to an agreement between the city of Eureka, CA and the Humboldt Arts Council.
