Sneak Peek at the new Badali licensed "The Hobbit" line Can't Post

Our friends at Badali Jewelry are giving our readers a rare sneak peek at one of the first items in their newly licensed "The Hobbit" line of jewelry: Thror's Key!

"It is easy to forget the the events of The Hobbit were hinged on a very simple object, a secret key that would open a secret door. This was Thror's Key. Thorin's Dwarven party desired to reclaim the Lonely Mountain from Smaug, The Dragon, more than anything. The answer to the dwarves quest was a map, door and key created in secret by Thorin's grandfather, Thror. Gandalf presents Thorin with this secret key when the party joins together at Bilbo Baggins home. "Here it is!" he said, and handed to Thorin a key with a long barrel and intricate wards, made of silver. "Keep it safe!"

Engraved on the barrel of the key is the same phrase written in Dwarvish runes that are found on Thror's map: "Five Feet High The Door, And Three May Walk Abreast." The key will be available in 2 different sizes, a 1 7/8" Sterling Silver Necklace and a 2 7/8" White Bronze Necklace or Key Chain. Note that this product is not yet available on their website. A limited inventory will be available at Comic-Con, with online sales to follow.

Oooh, I *really* like this. [In reply to] Can't Post

What a gorgeous design.


Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

That is nice! [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm confused.

Is Badali "officially licensed" to make jewellery from the upcoming films, or just from the books.

From what I remember from the leaked picture, the design is quite similar.
