Lord of the bling...
Hobbit hero Frodo Baggins' ring and sword are among an incredible £1.5 million archive of props from the blockbuster Lord of the Rings films that has emerged for sale.
Dozens of the smash hit trilogy's most iconic costumes and props are up for grabs including Gandalf's staff, Sauron's helmet and Gimli's battle axe.
Fans of the films, adapted from the 1954 book by British author J.R.R. Tolkein, can also get their hands on prosthetic hobbit ears and feet.
Amazingly the props have been compiled by a Lord of the Rings enthusiast who has spent more than 10 years scouring the world for authentic memorabilia.
They are being sold by Julien's Auctions in Los Angeles on December 5.
