Description:One of the three elven Rings wrought by Celebrimbor, Vilya, along with the Fire Ring, Narya, was given to Gil-Galad for safe keeping. Gil-Galad gave Narya to Cirdan but kept Vilya for himself.

At about the time of the founding of Imladris, Gil-Galad passed Vilya onto Elrond, who thereafter kept the ring with him and took it with him when he left Middle-Earth for the Blessed Lands.

'...and upon his finger was a ring of gold with a great blue stone, Vilya, mightest of the Three [ Elven-Rings]." The Grey Havens The Lord of the Rings, The Return of the King
