If you've only time to visit one jeweller in Nelson, it has to be Jens Hansen. Sadly, Mr Jens Hansen passed away before he was able to have his connections to LOTR recognised on the big screen, but his spirit lives on through his sons and the charming staff who made the process of buying jewellery a thoroughly pampering experience. Seeing through my disguise as a dishevelled backpacker, they allowed me to try on as many rings, bracelets and pendants as I wanted to, opened all the cabinets and made thoughtful suggestions to help me choose some beautiful pieces. I spent a total of 2 hours there, this is a serious purchase experience, so leave any unappreciative baggage behind. (They can always give out their credit card details over the phone later!). The LOTR connection was not mentioned once. They don't need to, but you can have see the actual 'stunt ring' that they keep in the shop. This is jewellery that you'll want to hand down to your grandchildren. Simply, a beautiful, beautiful place.
