Trip Planner: South Pacific / New Zealand / South Island / Nelson-Tasman Region / Nelson / Jens Hansen Gold and Silversmith
Jens Hansen - The Ringmaker is Nelson's Most Established & Only International Recognised Artisan Jewellery Workshop.
Jens Hansen's hand-forged designs are easily recognized and crafted to last for generations.
New Zealand filmmaker Peter Jackson asked Jens Hansen to design and make the Movie Ring for his film versions of J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings™ and The Hobbit™ books. Reproductions of "The World’s Most Famous Ring”, and the iconic The Golden Kiwi are available.
Originally established in 1968 by Jens and Gurli Hansen, the central Nelson studio workshop is now run by Jens' son Halfdan Hansen.
Jens’ work is highly regarded nationally and internationally; he is in the Marquis Who’s Who and has designs in the permanent collection of the Museum of New Zealand, Te Papa Tongarewa.
Jens passed away in 1999, but his legacy lives on in the hands of the internationally experienced in-house jewellers. Creating designs with the distinctive ‘Jens Hansen’ style, these artisan jewellers hand-forge beautiful pieces of jewellery that are easily recognised and crafted to last for generations; diamond engagement and dress rings, bracelets, pendants, brooches and silverware.
Jens Hansen was also Peter Jackson's ringmaker of choice to design and make the ring depicted on screen as The One Ring for his movie versions of J. R. R. Tolkien's famous The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit books.

Many thanks to the whole team. I ordered Wanderers circle as a birthday present for my husband. I’m very happy with the whole process, first, the order was fulfilled within almost a week, which is great considering customised engraving. The package was delivered the following day. And the packaging was so nice and neat with attention to all the details. I didn’t review the product right away, was waiting for my husband’s reaction :) well, he is very pleased to say the least! :) we’ll definitely be ordering more!
As massive Lord of the Rings fans my fiance decided we needed "The One Ring " wedding rings Jens Hansen didn't disappoint. The entire process of choosing and buying our rings was easy and had a very personal touch to it. When our rings arrived we certainly not disappointed. The craftsmanship was amazing and we love them . Cant wait for the big day!!!
