In The Magician's Nephew by C.S. Lewis, rings are used to travel between the worlds of Narnia and our place. In The Lord of the Rings rings are used, and in the case of the One Ring, when Frodo/Bilbo or even anyone put it on, they would go into the Wraith 'world'. What I'm wondering is whether Tolkien and Lewis both planned to use rings, or is it just a coincidence? And why do they both take the wearer go to another realm?
