365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 265: Elendilmir

The Elendilmir (Q. ‘Elendil-jewel’), also known as the Star of Elendil, was a single white gem bound to the brow by a fillet of silver. It had descended to Elendil from Silmariën of Andúnië, and later passed to Isildur. At the time of the Disaster of the Gladden Fields, it was still in Isildur’s possession, and was ultimately lost with his body. A new Elendilmir was made in Rivendell for Isildur’s last remaining son, Valandil, who had become the King of Arnor. This new jewel, known as the Star of the Dúnedain, was later worn by Aragorn during the Battle of the Pelennor Fields.
