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
C and I had a lovely holiday in your beautiful country. The itinerary was excellent but from our point of view it all went very fast. We would have liked to have spent more time in some areas, unfortunately we had only a few weeks available maybe next time we will come for longer. During our time in New Zealand we covered over 3,000 kilometres in 17 days so it was go go go.
Feed back for yourselves: accommodation was good to excellent but overall very nice. staff and owners we found to be very friendly and helpful.
Car hire very good and although our contract was standard we asked to rent sat nav but they said we could have that included at no extra charge. Good customer service.
Lastly but by no means least. We would like to thank you for an excellent service. Our every request was dealt with and the knowledge that we had someone to turn to for advice should we have needed it was a great comfort.
I hope you find these comments informative, and we would have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone travelling to New Zealand for a holiday.
Wishing you and your company every success in the future.
