A local jeweler here, Jens Hansen, is home to the original ring in the Lord of the Rings. Not that I care anything about the movies, but it was cool to check it out nonetheless. That sucker was huge, too. I think the guy told me it was like 8 inches in diameter. It’s made out of steel with gold plating on the outside and super heavy. So if you ever wondered, the infamous ring is real and it’s not just a piece of costume jewelry.
