My apologies, I have quite forgotten about this. This one is inspired by some of my favourite Hui riddles.



Made by the last of the house of the eldest,
Sent to the bearer of shining shield,
Given to maker of water vessels,
Passed to one who went far afield,
Followed the siblings going westward,
Never to enemy was revealed.

Urwen has just left Hobbiton.
The third line makes me think it's the ring Narya. Made by Celebrimbor, then given to Gil-Galad, who gave it to Cirdan, who gave it to Gandalf, who traveleed west with (among others) Elladan and Elrohir, I think. And it wasn't revealed until Sauron was gone.

Narya is correct. "Siblings going westward" are Nenya and Vilya.
