         ”My wife (fiancée at the time) knows what a ridiculous Tolkien fan I am and she was kind enough to buy my wedding ring from Jens Hansen in New Zealand.  It cost over half of all the money she had in the world at that time.  

When it arrived in the mail, it was even better than I’d hoped.  The box and packaging was better than an iPhones’s, there was a lovely monogrammed jewelry polishing cloth inside and then … a 22 carat gold Ruling Ring.

Holy smokes, it was exactly like the one in the movie … because it is the one from the movie.  It’s a huge, heavy chunk of gold, shaped nearly flat on the inside yet with a perfect slope on the outside and polished to a mirror finish flawless enough to see your own eye staring back at you like Sauron’s … minus the flames and pure evil.  

When you drop it on a table it doesn’t make a ‘clink’ sound, it makes a ‘thunk!’.  Here’s a picture from Jens Hansen’s web site of an 18 carat yellow gold ring.”

I’ve never worn jewelry in my life but my lovely wife’s wedding ring gift is my most prized physical possession.  It’s my precious …

P.S., Does this mean my wife rules me now?  ;-)”

Thank you Thomas and enjoy your very special One Ring

THE NELSON RING ON ITS WAY TO USA

Nelson Mayor Rachel Reese came in on Thursday last week to receive #TheNelsonRing. This ring will be gifted to Mayor Andy Berke of Gig City Chattanooga USA, when #gigatownnsn representatives are visiting this week. Good luck to the Nelson representatives.

Here is a behind the scenes sneak peak and fortunately Martin, The Nelson Mail photographer, was able to remove the ring!
