Precious Gifts for Your Valentine! Day 1: Jewelry

Looking for something “precious” for your Valentine? From flowers to DIY and chocolates to jewelry, Middle-earth News has you covered. Each item has been hand-picked by the News Staff and sure to please any Ringer.

Think Geek has gone steam punk with this awesome “Leather Statement Cuff”, which can be engraved with the quote “Not all who wander are lost”. It is one of Tolkien’s most widely known quotes and is taken from his poem “”All that is gold does not glitter”. A swallow accompanies the engraving.

If your taste tends to steer towards a more classic look, try this  officially licensed Lord of the Rings Bangle, crafted by Lord of the Rings Jewelry. Made in New Zealand from Sterling Silver, both sides of the bangle are engraved with elvish runes which read “One Ring to rule them all. One Ring to find them. One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.”

Lord of the Rings Jewelry also sells two unique necklaces, a Frodo Sting Pendant and a Gimli’s Axe Pendant. Both are Sterling Silver and come with a collectors card and a leather pouch.

One of my personal favorites from the Warner Brothers Shop is The Galadriel Necklace. Made of Sterling Silver, the necklace bares three intricate flowers, each set with European crystals and comes with a certificate of authenticity.

Considering ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ hits theaters this December 14, I thought this Smaug Ring was quite appropriate. Crafted by Badali Jewelry, this Sterling Silver Smaug holds tight to the coveted Arkenstone, made of Swarovski Crystal. A truly unique piece.
Want to go hard core? I’d recommend The One Ring, sold by Jens Hansen. By far, this is the top made One Ring out there. Handcrafted by the Jens Hansen Jewelry Workshop in New Zealand, this is the team who made The One Ring you see in ‘The Lord of the Rings Motion Picture Trilogy’. No one comes close to the detail and quality craftsmanship this company has, and you’ll have to be prepared to dish out some dough for it. The One Ring and the silver chain (like the one Frodo wears in the films) will cost you an estimated total of $2,610+ USD. And no, that doesn’t include shipping.
