Jens Hansen - The Ringmaker

Jens Hansen - The Ringmaker is Nelson's Most Established & Only International Recognised Artisan Jewellery Workshop

Home of The World's Most Famous Ring.

Established in 1960, Jens Hansen's hand-forged designs are easily recognized and crafted to last for generations.

All the jewellery is handcrafted, original, precious and crafted 'to be worn'. This simple philosophy rewards us with creative pieces that we can all embrace, afford and love, and was also why New Zealand filmmaker Peter Jackson asked Jens Hansen to design and make the Movie Ring used to depict the famous One Ring for the film versions of J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings™ and The Hobbit™ books.

Danish-born Jens (pronounced ‘Yens’) moved to Auckland, New Zealand in 1952, where he completed a traditional jewellers apprenticeship. In 1960 he held his first solo exhibition at New Vision gallery. His journeyman years included time in Copenhagen, with Royal Danish Court Jewellers, A. Michelsen. In 1968, Jens settled in Nelson with his wife Gurli and Halfdan, his first son.
