Prototype One Ring Up For Auction!

Original Jens Hansen One Ring prototype goes on sale through Sotheby's

Sotheby's have listed for auction a unique prototype of the One Ring made by Jens Hansen, during the design process for the film. Jens Hansen was a noted New Zealand jeweler, and designer of the One Ring for the trilogy. An original concept drawing by Dan Hennah, Twice-Academy Award Nominated, will be offered with the piece.


From the Sotheby’s (eBay) web listing:

The sterling silver ring and concept design sketch are actual working items from the design process for the creation of the One Ring for the "Lord of the Rings" movie trilogy filmed in New Zealand. The ring is one of only 7 known remaining silver prototypes, each one different, representing the evolution of the design process. The ring includes the original sketch drawn by Supervising Art Director and Academy Award Nominee Dan Hennah. The ring was handmade by master goldsmith Jens Hansen and comes with a certificate of authenticity. The ring is in a wooden box.
