"Lesser Ring", as portrayed by Larry Forcella for MECCG

The lesser rings were forged by the elves as essays in the craft of ring making. These rings were made sometime between S.A. 1200, when Sauron came in disguise to Eregion, and 1500, when they began crafting the greater Rings of Power.[1]

Gandalf mentioned these rings to Frodo when recounting the origins of the Rings of Power.[2]

Portrayal in adaptations

1995-1997: Middle-earth Collectible Card Game

Several cards describing and depicting lesser rings were released, for example "The Oracle's Ring", "Wizard's Ring", and "Magic Rings" of different power (lore, stealth, courage, etc.).

2007: The Lord of the Rings Online:

Narchuil was one of the lesser rings forged by the elven-smiths. It was worn by Amarthiel.
