Tolkien Week: Day 2
I can’t remember exactly when my parents surprised me with this Evenstar necklace, and no one can remember exactly where they got it from. It was for Christmas or my birthday in 2002 or 2003—back when The Lord of the Rings was still being released in cinemas and I was being swept away in the magic for the first time. I couldn’t have been more than 12 years old and I was overwhelmed; it was the most precious thing I’d ever owned (no pun intended). I still can’t get over how beautiful it is.
