Rune Stones Inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien's 'The Hobbit' and 'Lord of the Rings'

Hand-Engraved Rune Stones

We have been fans of Tolkien's books since Mom read them to us as little children, and we've been fans of Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings   and The Hobbit   films since they began to come out. Over the years, we have made quite a few Middle Earth-inspired dolls and crafts, but it was not until watching The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies   that Elizabeth discovered the joy of engraving Rune Stones. If you've followed Tokien's "Lord of the Rings" series all the way through, these would be perfect "souvenirs"!

Inspired by Kili's Rune Stone (as seen in the Hobbit films), we've come up with ideas of our own for these hand-engraved Tolkien-themed stones. Some of them feature the Dwarvish Khuzdul runes, some the Elivish Tengwar runes, and others are engraved with individual symbols to represent different heroes. Each stone is hand-engraved, so no two rune stones are alike. Every stone varies slightly in size and shape. Each type or set of stones that we have made is listed below. Just click on the photos to see them at full size. If you have a different word or symbol that you would like on a stone, please let us know!

"Amralime:  My Love" Rune Stone

$13.00 + Shipping (without pouch)
$17.00 + Shipping (with pouch)

This is the most popular rune stone that we make! On this stone, we have engraved (in authentic Tolkien Dwarvish Khuzdul rune characters) what Kili says to Tauriel during their most romantic moment in the Hobbit  movie: "My Love" (Amralime). We even handsewed a small, cotton pouch (dark green) especially for it, complete with a shiny drawstring, for perfect gift giving! "My Love" Rune Stones are approximately 1" to 1-1/2" long.

Every stone we make is a ONE OF A KIND Rune Stone. Even if we made fifty of these, each real stone and its engraving are similar but unique to the shape of the stone. Photos above show three different "My Love" stones, which illustrates the difference in each of these handmade items.

Rune Stones are approximately 1" to 1-1/2" long.

COIN. There isn't exactly a lot of Erebor dragon treasure lying around these days, so we're going to share what we managed to salvage. This particular coin just happens to be a replica of one of the actual coins seen in Erebor (in the movie) under Bilbo's feet. You will receive one very special, heavy metal "dwarf coin" Prop Replica, cast in a Zinc Alloy with Bronze plating. It's about 2" in diameter and bears the image of a mighty Dwarf Warrior (his name has been lost to time) on the front and a Wild Boar on the back.

"Real Labradorite"  Kili Rune Stone

$50.00 + Shipping (without pouch)
$54.00 + Shipping (with pouch)

You will receive the actual stone shown in the photos. THIS IS THE LAST OF THESE REAL LABRADORITE RUNE STONES!

Labradorite is the actual mineral used by Peter Jackson's crew to make Kili's rune stone for the movie. This particular piece is an unusual Pale Grey with incredible inner fire of blue, green and gold. When held up to natural light at a window, looks like beautiful butterfly wings inside. The mineral is known for its stripey-looking "cracks" that run through it and has been polished to an almost-glasslike sheen.

NB: These labradorite stones look more like the one in the movies if you apply a coat of oil to the engraved area and wipe the excess off. The writing darkens, giving more of an engraved stone appearance. They do not, however, photograph very well that way, so we leave them unoiled for selling.

This nice-sized rune stone measures about 1-3/4" wide and has been engraved to look like Kili's Rune Stone from The Hobbit movie, using authentic Tolkien Dwarvish Khuzdul rune characters which read "Innikh de" (Return to Me -- this is what's on the stone which Kili gives to Tauriel and then Tauriel gives back to him, when she is crying over her lost love.) The other side of the stone is blank.
