Fodor's Review

Known now as "The Ringmaker," Jens Hansen craftspeople have long been known for skilled gold and silver jewelry creations. Contemporary pieces are handmade at the workshop/showroom, and many are set with precious stones or pounamu (jade) from the West Coast of the South Island. While they still do all this, the focus here has changed since Jens crafted the precious "One Ring" of Lord of the Rings film trilogy fame. You will find replicas of this ring all around the world, but here you can buy the officially authorized replica ring. The original prototype is on display, as is Frodo's chain. The studio opens by appointment outside regular hours.
