    If you have €16.250 (about the same in US $), you can now buy the gold ring which was used in the upcoming movie "Lord of the Rings". It is the german auction site eBay which is selling the ring, and the money they'll make on it will help children with cancer. Here is some info about the ring:

    - Fineness 585 Gold
    - 14 carat
    - Weight: 8 Gramm
    - Width: 6,5 mm
    - Thickness: 1,8 mm
    - Absolute individual item
    - Numeration "No. 1"
    - No merchandising item, but THE original ring for movie
    - Certificate by licensed Goldsmith

    Actually the German Goldsmith and manufacturer of this ring, intended to make himself a wonderful "Tolkien-Saga-gold-ring". But when the boss of New Line Cinema who produced "Lord of the rings" happened to see this ring, he was so enthusiastic about this ring that he authorised him with producing all the rings for the film. The goldsmith used a unique laser-technique for the engraving of the ring, that should prevent any falsifications. This original ring is also called the "mother of all movie-rings", because it is not only the first ring ever made for the movie "lord of the rings", (manufactured already in march 1999) but also the prototype for all following rings worn by the actors in the movie. Although those actor-rings, unlike the original, do not have the engraving like or any numeration. This ring has the inscription: "One Ring to rule them all, one Ring to find them, one Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them ..." The ring is the only one with numeration, on the inside it says fineness 585 and "NR.1" (No.1). So even a layperson can tell the difference between the original and the merchandising copies.
