Gandalf had excellent taste in headwear and fireworks. Our friend John "JRR" Tolkien was the Lord of Magic and not just the author that some say he is. How else could he have made dragons, dwarves, and elves come to life. I think we all know that he actually had the ring up in the tower he wrote in and has passed it on, surely to someone who now plays tabletop RPG games. Put that in your pipe and smoke it, my dear hobbits and wizards!
