Visit the Lord of the Rings Ringmaker

Nelson is home to the Lord of the Rings famous ringmaker, Jens Hansen.

Visiting Nelson is always an absolute pleasure for its sense of relaxation and rejuvenation all rolled into one blissful, small seaside city.  The sun and sand alone are attractions enough, but add to that the beautiful gardens, long stretches of golden sand beach, renowned wineries, The World of Wearable Art and Classic Cars Museum and “The Ring” and you have the perfect stopover destination.  If you love the creative side of life you’ll find the city is full of fantastic original arts, with workshops to visit showcasing paintings, sculptures, glass, fashion and jewellery.

Leafy Trafalgar Street with its plethora of outdoor cafes culminates at the distinctive Nelson Cathedral, where time relaxing on the steps in the sunshine is never wasted.  Explore the phenomenal selection of dining options, from gourmet restaurants to popular local pubs.  With the beautiful Nelson scenery as a backdrop, dining outdoors is the perfect way to spend a balmy evening.

But just one block away from Trafalgar Street, perched on a very unassuming corner is a world famous creative gem.  It’s the workshop of Jens Hansen, “The Ringmaker” of the legendary ring from the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit movies.  A visit to Nelson is simply not complete without a visit to this internationally acclaimed ringmaker who specialises in diamond rings, The One Ring replicas and custom-made jewellery.

What our clients say
Sorry for not messaging before now, I've started a new job since we have been back and I am not sure where time has gone! Everything else went to clock work and we had a amazing time. The only slight problem we had was it snowed in the north island and they shut the road to Napier the day we needed it! We managed to get there but it was a 7hr diversion! But that's part and parcel of traveling in the winter! We have got so many photos to hunt through! Thank you so much for all your help and patience, I will certainly recommend you to any friends/family that think of doing a similar trip. If you are on trip adviser or anything similar and you would like us to review you please let me know as I would be more than happy to do so.
