A new exhibit at The Vyne in Hampshire, England, claims to display the real life cursed ring that inspired J.R.R Tolkien’s classic The Lord Of The Rings saga. The 4th Century Roman gold ring was stolen from its original owner, who put a curse on the theif. Tolkien studied the curse and the ring a mere months before he began writing The Hobbit.
