The One to rule them all, this model was made to portray the golden ring of power shown throughout the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit franchise as accurately as possible with the use of Blender 2.79 and its Cycles renderer. Gold and precious, it even comes with the glowing, Black Speech Tengwar inscription that is easily faded in and out with the slide of a bar. At a value of 1, it's an unassuming but beautiful, golden ring. Sliding to 0, it quickly becomes the harbinger of the Dark Lord's will. If the light putout isn't right for your purpose or personal liking, you can also adjust the inscription's max brightness by simply increasing the number on the emission's multiplier.
The model requires nothing but itself -- the inscription texture is even nicely packed within the .blend file. However, the texture is included in the download just in case.
