    Question NOBLE COLLECTION: "Ring of the Witch-king" and "Ring of the King of Men"

    Hello everybody,

    I hope this is the right place to post; if not please advise.

    I am searching for information and pictures of these two items which have been produced by the NOBLE COLLECTION in the early beginnings of the LotR film trilogy. They haven't been around a long time afaik, maybe because people have been more interested in the ONE RING and Galadriels Nenya.

    Interestingly even the internet has merely no pictures of these items to show. I also cannot find any information if I can obtain these (especially the Ring of the King of Men) still somewhere.

    If any of you can help me with some information or maybe even with somebody who is going to sell these, I would be very grateful.

    Thanks to you all in advance!
    Peter

    I'm sure I've got a few saved in my LOTR files. I'll post some when I get into work.

    As promised, here's some pics. Unfortunately I only have one good pic of The NC King of Men Ring.

    Here's the version of the WK ring that I have. It's an official Japanese version that I picked up a few years ago. I like this one because of the sheer size & weight of it, and the skulls on it are more prominent as well. It is also cast as one solid piece and there is no stone to fall out. This thing is durable, I've worn this for years with no worries.

    Thank you very much NAZGUL-KING. These pics are very helpful because they clear up a few things which have gone lost in the mist of times.
    Your japanese version looks nice but not screen-acurate, though it seems to be "official"

    Can you also be of some help in hunting down a NC Ring of the King of Men? Because of my post count I cannot post a request in the forums market place but maybe there is somebody you know or maybe even some retailer?
    Any help is appreciated.

I used it for a display and it was totally tarnished after a year, but I really didn't mind though, because it actually had a very ancient, evil look to it.

    What do you mean? It comes with a certificate of authenticity!

    No Problem.

    Unfortunately the NC WK and KOM rings have been discontinued for many years now and they are extremely scarce in the aftermarket. At this point to find a mint one with the stone intact would be difficult (unless they were just displayed). I've owned two of the NC's Ring of Barahir and both stones ended up falling out. One lasted for two years and the other lasted for four.
