Lorien Leaf Brooch Green Leaf Pin

$24.99

Lorien Brooch or Leaf Brooch. These Lorien brooches are modeled on newly opened leaves of the beech tree. Delicate vines of silver swirl around the 3-D leaf. In our version, the silver veins of the leaf are visible, unlike on lesser versions where they are covered in green glaze.

As you most likely know, Galadriel gave each of the members of the Fellowship of the Ring a cloak and a Leaf of Lorien brooch at the end of their stay at Lothlórien to protect them on their journey. Of the nine members, only Gandalf didn’t receive one, as he was presumed to be dead at the time. However, Gandalf appears later with a white robe and a Lorien brooch, which implies he visited the Elves in the meantime.

Description

Modeled closely on the Lorien Green Leaf Brooch in the Peter Jackson movies, these replica green leaf brooches have an ordinary pin back like the originals.

The Lorien brooch or leaf pin is decorative.

Because a pin back won’t hold the cloak on, it is recommended to utilize a hidden clasp to close your cloak, and use the Lorien brooch as decoration. Fortunately, our Raven Fox Cloaks have a subtle black eyelet clasp to hold your cloak on.

Material: Platinium over copper
Dimensions: 64 x 43mm (2.5 x 1.7 inch)
Closes with a pin on back as shown
Comes with a velvet-like pouch

The LOTR movie brooch was designed by Jasmine Watson. For the movie, there were approximately 60 brooches in all (for scale doubles, stunt doubles, etc.). Later, they made a mold of the original brooch for mass production as the Lorien brooch is a popular item with Lord of the Rings Fans.

The Lorien brooches were gifted to The Fellowship with the LOTR cloaks.

Both the cloaks and the brooches are imbued with special magical powers bestowed by Lady Galadriel to protect The Fellowship on its journey to Mount Doom to destroy the One Ring. The cloak helps keep the travelers hidden from those who are trying to find them and defeat them. The brooches can provide light where it is dark. Interestingly, they possess opposite powers.

The Lorien brooch is part of the story in “The Fellowship of the Ring.”

In the first instance, young Hobbits Pippin and Merry are captured by the Orcs and forced to travel with them. Pippin fears that even if Strider and the others find their trail, they’ll never know that Pippin and Merry were taken by the Orcs as the big prints of Orc feet would obliterate any tiny hobbit foot prints. Thus Pippin dives to one side in order to leave some of foot prints of his own and at the same time drops his Lorien brooch in hopes it would be found.

Sure enough, Aragorn finds both Pippin’s foot prints and the leaf pin. ‘Yes,’ he said, ‘they are quite plain: a hobbit’s footprints. Pippin’s I think. He is smaller than the other. And look at this! He held up a thing that glittered in the sunlight. It looked like the new-opened leaf of a beech-tree, fair and strange in that treeless plain.’

‘The brooch of an elven-cloak!’ cried Legolas and Gimli together.

‘Not idly do the leaves of Lórien fall,’ said Aragorn. ‘This did not drop by chance: it was cast away as a token to any that might follow. I think Pippin ran away from the trail for that purpose.’

‘Then he at least was alive,’ said Gimli. ‘And he had the use of his wits, and of his legs too. That is heartening. We do not pursue in vain.’

‘Let us hope that he did not pay too dearly for his boldness,’ said Legolas. ‘Come! Let us go on! The thought of those merry young folk driven like cattle burns my heart.’

Much later in a different scene, Frodo shows the brooch to Faramir to prove his story. He explains to Faramir that he, Frodo and Boromir were in Lothlorien and it was there that Boromir received a golden belt and Frodo and other the brooch.

Lord of the Rings fans, if you’d like to have one of these Lorien brooches or leaf brooches for yourself, don’t hesitate.
