Jens Hansen is pleased to have created for Weta - Gollum's precious 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 get your own 'Precious' 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 Weta.
This gorgeous piece of jewellery is completely smooth and comes without Elvish runes. If you prefer to have a ring with with Elvish runes, we recommend The One Ring - Gold Plated Tungsten Carbide from The Lord of the Rings with Elvish Runes.
The ring comes in a wooden gift box made from natural Cherry timber which 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 Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey logo on the outside and the logos of Weta and Jens Hansen on the inside. The inside bottom of the box is lined with burgundy 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. 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 are purchasing is a Gold Plated product - with reasonable wear and tear the gold finish should retain its lustre for at least 2 years, but it is not scratchproof. (We do not recommend this ring as a wedding band. For wedding rings we always recommend solid gold, white gold or platinum.)
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.
The ring comes in whole US sizes from 6 to 13 (see UK/Euro equivalent sizes below). Due to the nature of tungsten-carbide this ring cannot be resized, so please make sure you order the right size for you. Half-sizes are NOT available and CANNOT be custom-ordered. We cannot accept responsibility for wrong size ordered. Please double-check all measurements before you order.
Due to the nature of tungsten-carbide the engraving on this ring cannot be further adjusted, changed or altered in ANY way. Also, this ring CANNOT be custom-ordered completely unengraved. (Please order the Jens Hansen Movie Ring if you would like to incorporate a custom-engraved design).
