Elvish Leaf Necklace
A Leaf of HOLLIN™
Also known as Eregion (meaning Land of the Holly in Sindarin), Hollin was an Elven Realm of the Ñoldorin Elves during the Second Age. It was located near the West Gate of Moria, or Khazad-dûm. These coins were made by the Ñoldorin Elves while under the rule of Celebrimbor, the great Elven-smith and forger of the Rings of Power. Hollin was later destroyed during the War of the Elves and Sauron.
The Tengwar side translates from Sindarin:
“Star-kindler, O Elbereth! White shining slants down like the Silmarils from the heavens - the radiance of the star-host.”On the reverse, in Dwarf Runes (Angerthas Moria):
“Under Celebrimbor, lord of Eregion Tegilbor made me in the eleventieth year of the third yen.”The bilingual inscriptions indicate the Elves and Dwarves in this region maintained amicable relations and traded freely for years during the Second Age.

Beautiful and crafted with care. The brass acquired a darker bronze patina quite quickly, which looks lovely, and the chain (which I received in bronze, though a silver one was pictured) matches it perfectly. The details on the pendant are amazing. The necklace is longer than I usually wear, but it suits the size of the pendant and can be clasped higher to adjust the length as needed. I wanted a subtle way of carrying my love of Tolkien with me—this is perfect!
It’s a beautiful piece. I got it to celebrate my wife and I having our 7th wedding anniversary and she loved it. As we sat in the car and she opened it she was very excited to open the envelope and has worn it a few times as well. It’s perfect for a nerdy lady like her and I was glad it was a smashing success unlike some of the other anniversary gifts she has received.
Beautiful piece that came beautifully packaged.
My mom, who is a huge fan, loved this as a Christmas gift.
I’ve ordered from here a few times now and as always the product is amazing. My wife’s gonna love this.
