Review: Wisdom of Gandalf Pendant and Aragorn Engagement Ring from Badali Jewelry

Hi everyone! It's been awhile. What better way to return from a wee hiatus than by writing about my favorite people/products?!


The fine folks at Badali Jewelry have done it again. Following the success of their Eowyn Shieldmaiden pendant, they have just released another piece inspired by a character quote - this time by Gandalf, whose wisdom is unmatched. This pendant, available with either a chain or a choker, features what is perhaps his most famous line from The Fellowship of the Ring:

"All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us."

Just look at all the little details! 

I opted for the 24" rope chain, as I've never had much luck with chokers or anything that sits too close to the skin on or around my neck/collar. I love how low this hangs down. It makes for a nice statement piece.

If you follow me on any form of social media, you probably know by now that Gandalf is my favorite Tolkien character - so this piece is perfect for someone like me! And perfect for anyone who enjoys wearing their favorite quote. This is such a simple, yet beautifully done piece - just like everything made at Badali.

This one was a gift to myself. I hadn't bought anything in awhile and I had waited so very long for Badali to make their version of the Ring of Barahir. I was devastated after my original one from Noble Collection lost its gem several years ago; and then I realized that Badali would definitely make a better one anyway - and I was right! 

It might be an overreaction to say I want to cry every time I get a new piece in the mail, but it's true. I get goosebumps opening my packages and butterflies in my stomach. My eyes water a little when I see the amazing work of art before my eyes. How they manage to capture the essence of Tolkien's books so perfectly each time never fails to amaze me.

As you can see, I now have both Aragorn's and Arwen's engagement rings:
