Necklace of Girion

Type: Gems & Jewelry


A magnificent emerald necklace given to the Dwarves by the Lord of Dale:
Emerald necklace.
A necklace with trios of cut emeralds, such as might have been owned by Girion.
[The] talk turned to the great hoard [of Smaug] itself and to the things that Thorin and Balin remembered. They wondered if they were still lying there unharmed in the hall below: the spears that were made for the armies of the great King Bladorthin...; shields made for warriors long dead; the... cup of Thror...; coats of mail...; the necklace of Girion, Lord of Dale, made of five hundred emeralds green as grass, which he gave for the arming of his eldest son in a coat of dwarf-linked rings the like of which had never been made before, for it was wrought of pure silver to the power and strength of triple steel.
