This is Us - Halfdan Hansen Sharing His Thoughts

“I went off to Canterbury University and dld electrical engineering and then I got a lob with an oilfield services company. My last assignment was In Tehran. It was brllllant. It was like joining the army but being paid well and not having to kill anybody. I came back here and my brother was worklng In the buslness because my dad had died In 1999, just after making the (Lord of the Rings) ring for Peter Jackson. Stuff to do with the Ring probably makes up about 30 per cent of our business but it's hard to know. Our bread and butter ls engagement rlngs and we do speclal commlsslons llke the Super Rugby trophy." - Halfdan Hansen, Jeweller. Nelson
