Yellow Gold Replica Ring   - Jens Hansen - 1 Yellow Gold Replica Ring   - Jens Hansen - 2

Our Most Authentic replica Rings

Yellow Gold & Smooth Polished

Just like in the films

The Jens Hansen Ring that was filmed for The Lord of the Rings™ movies was originally made in 18ct yellow gold.  It weighed approximately 17 grams (more than 1/2 oz.), is 2.7mm thick through the band and measures about 7mm tall (just over 1/4 inch) when laid on its side. The gold in the Ring came from the leading New Zealand precious metals supplier.

This is an authentic replica as made for the film trilogy. It is the only faithful replica; made by the original designers and makers to the exact proportions and pattern as the original used in the movie trilogy.  This also makes it the perfect Elvish wedding band.

If it is not perfect as is please click the Forge Your Custom Ring button below to use our Ring Builder tool for more options.

Choose the 18ct yellow for complete fidelity to the origianl, maximum gold content and lifelong durability.  (Rich golden color).

Choose the   9ct yellow as the best solid gold option on a budget. (Slightly brassy yellow color)

Choose the 14ct yellow for a mid-price option that is exceptionally hardwearing (14 carat is minimum content pure gold to be considered real gold in many countries - Straw yellow color)

 

Custom Engraving & English-to-Elvish 

This ring can be engraved on either or both the inside and outside of the band. Checkout our english-to-elvish translator.

You can have your own engraver or jeweller engrave the ring for you at anytime in the future, or if you would like us to arrange engraving for you when you buy there is a fixed cost of NZ$115- per side engraved. 

Please select the Custom Engraving option desired at the time of order and when you have completed your purchase we will contact you to confirm the engraving detail before commencing work.  Engraving typically adds 1 week to turnaround time in addition to the time to finalize the engraving design.

NB: Our laser engraver can handle any message, pattern, pictures or symbols desired so long as you are using standard fonts, or can provide a two-tone (e.g. Black & White) image file AND there is enough room for your message to fit on the ring.  We CANNOT for legal reasons engrave the same elvish script that features on our licensed The One Ring designs.  Other messages in elvish or any other language are ok, of course.

About The World’s Most Famous Ring

This Elvish Love Ring is a recreation of the “Movie Ring” that played the role of the “One Ring” in the “Lord of the Rings” movie trilogy by Peter Jackson.
The design is based on how one of Jens’ sons, Thorkild, described the ring as a child: “Simple, heavy band.”
Since the first movie premiered in December 2001, the Movie Ring has been the most recognizable ring in the world.

Timeless craftsmanship

Jens Hansen trained many of New Zealand’s leading contemporary jewellers and his pieces are seen in museums, galleries, and royal collections alike.
His works were known for their craftsmanship and  design quality and have lasted generations. Many of his early designs are still just as relevant as when they were first sold decades ago.
Thanks to its elegant, yet recognizable shape that fits every finger, the Movie Ring is perhaps the most timeless piece he ever designed.

Make the ring your own

The original Movie Ring was 7mm wide (just over 1/4 inch) and made of 18ct yellow gold.
Your Elvish Love Ring can be an exact replica, but you can also choose from three other widths (3mm, 4mm, and 5mm), four other materials (white gold, red gold, palladium, and platinum), and three other gold qualities (9ct, 14ct, and—yellow gold only—22ct).

Your own Elvish engraving

The engraving is often what truly gives a ring its meaning. You can choose your own Elvish (or any other language) engraving for both inside and outside the ring.
The Elvish Love Poem fits perfectly on the outside of the ring:
One ring to show our love,
One ring to bind us,
One ring to seal our love,
And forever to entwine us.

    Hallmark and makers marks

    What are hallmarks and makers marks?
    These are the small symbols typically stamped inside the band on a ring that indicate the quality and type of precious metal used, and the jewellery makers name and origin.  For us this normally includes our Jens Hansen signature hallmark.  It is generally recommended to retain these unless you have a special reason not to. As they are indents they cannot be felt when the ring is worn on the finger.
