Cartier versus Celebrimbor

Who makes the best jewelry? (Cursed or non-cursed.)

Second bout:

Who makes the best mantle clocks?

"Begone, foul dwimmerlaik, lord of carrion! Leave the dead in peace!"
"Come not between the Nazgul and his prey! Or he will not slay thee in thy turn. He will bear thee away to the houses of lamentation, beyond all darkness, where thy flesh shall be devoured, and thy shrivelled mind be left naked to the Lidless Eye."
"Do what you will; but I will hinder it, if I may."
"Hinder me? Thou fool. No living man may hinder me!"
"But no living man am I! I am Eowyn, daughter of Theodwyn!"
"Er, really? My mother's name was Theodwyn, too!"
"No way!"
"Wow! Let's stop fighting and be best friends!"

*Beats the rush for bout one...

Celebrimbor made three rings that only had power over fire, water, and atmosphere.
Whereas Cartier made a beautifully bejeweled multi-colored egg that through the ages became a Wonder of the Easter Islanders.
Each mid-April the single surviving Rapa Nui resurrects the thrilling Legend of the Egg.

Nod to Cartier *Aw jeez ... Mad*

‘. . . the rule of no realm is mine . . .
But all worthy things that are in peril . . . those are my care.
For I also am a steward. Did you not know?'

I wouldn't sneeze at an elegant little box from either one of those gentlemen,

as long as they also took me to second breakfast at Tiffany's.

too many memes lately

Reading this I only picture Fêanor in the background with "PATHETIC" all over ... :P
