The Ring We Might Have Made for Sir Ian

It is a statement of record that for the Peter Jackson Lord of the Rings movie trilogy we made the One Ring in all its appearances, the silver chain worn by Frodo Baggins and Vilya, ring of Elrond.

We did not make any of the other rings and jewellery in the movie.  For legal reasons we cannot use the actual name of the ring worn by the character played by Sir Ian Mckellen.  We call it “the Ring for Sir Ian”. It is not licensed merchandise.

We have however created our own interpretation of this ring based on descriptions of this ring given in the books. It was made in 14ct yellow gold and accompanied with an oval synthetic Ruby.


  • Metal type: Yellow Gold.
  • Settling style: Bezel. 
  • Stone type/colour: Natural A grade Ruby, Natural Garnet, Synthetic Ruby or Imitation Ruby. (Imitation Ruby is an unknown synthetic gemstone only imitating a Ruby colour.)
  • Stone shape/cut: Faceted oval cut.
  • Stone size: 6x4mm.
  • Band style: Flat profiled band with raised grooved detailing and a polished finish.
