The above picture is the One Ring which is said to be the focus of the main central plot of J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Lord Of The Rings". This One Ring is familiar to all those who have read Tolkien's book or who happened to watch its film adaptation. The One Ring was intended to be the most powerful of all rings and possessing and wearing it gives the wearer power and dominion over other who wear the other Rings of Power. It is said to be a magic ring of invisibility. Will you destroy the One Ring in the pit of the volcanic Mount Doom? Or will you keep it for yourself to have power and dominion over others? Are you a J.R.R. Tolkien's fans? N.B. Information verified in Wiki Image source: lotr.wikia.com

I've seen all the episodes of "The Lord Of The Rings". I did not like it. I did not even read the book! Anyway, any ring, I would not break it!

I don't think it's all powerful as it was portrayed to be. It just made corrupted hideous looking beings and an invisibility mode that can still be affected by people if they can sense it. Remember the scene where Golem bites the ring off of Frodo even when he is invisible. So what's the use if you can be sensed. And even if it were powerful what good use can it be put to. It was just gonna corrupt people; so it was better to destroy it. (*_*)

I never understood why Tom Bombadil didn't keep the ring. He was the only one who could carry it without becoming corrupt.

@Genipher Yes you are right my friend. Maybe J.R.R. Tolkien has the reason to make the plot of the story more interesting my friend.

@mandala100 I could see bringing in a bit of history for the readers but, all in all, I think Tom Bombadil should have been left out of that particular story. Or at the very least, his ability to control the ring should have been left out. Oh well. It is what it is.

I am not a fan of Tolkien's books, but I would surely keep the ring. May be inside a transparent case.

I might be tempted to keep it, but would know the wiser choice is to destroy it. So, evil can never get a hold of it.

I have read the books and seen all the movies. The ring gives power but corrupts the mind.

I'm a Tolkien fan. If I were given a choice, I would embark the journey to destroy the Ring just like Frodo. The ring looks pretty useless in the movie series but book readers will understand the dangers behind having a Maia or rogue Elf drawing the full power of the Ring. In fact, I believe that Saruman or a rogue Gandalf would be able to become another Dark Lord strong enough to rival or defeat a Sauron at his peak. In conclusion, the Ring has to be destroyed as it will bring cycles of war and destruction in Middle Earth if left untouched.

@holdoors You are accurate on your observation my friend going to the text of the book itself apart from it's film adaptation. That's great my friend.

I read the books as well as watched the movies. I would hope that I would be strong enough to destroy the ring even though it tries to make you do otherwise.

@sumofalltears Yes my friend I agree with you. One Ring has a power of its own like magnet and for sure it will tempt your mind not to throw or destroy it.

I wouldn't feel safe keeping it for myself, because I doubt it would really protect me from those who would be after me to get it.

I am a big fan of it. No I will take the ring to the pawn shop I took my son to the pub in England where Tolkien often sat and wrote these books. The pub is called The Eagle and Child in Oxford, England.
