The hidden meaning in the symbols of The Lord of the Rings

What does it mean to hide one of the symbols in The Lord of the Rings? JRR Tolkien’s saga can be very mysterious.

The hidden meaning behind a symbol from The Lord of the Rings is revealed, Peter Jackson introduced some changes to JRR Tolkien’s work, among them the replacement of Glorfindel by Arwen in The Fellowship of the Ring. This was a way of giving his character more screen time, while at the same time emphasizing his supposed power to fend off the Nazgul. Another way for Jacen to expose Arwen was to give her a beautiful jewel that never existed in Tolkien’s story: the necklace known as the Evening Star.

Arwen takes the Evening Star at the beginning of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, but gives it to Aragorn before leaving with the others. Although Elrond did not quite agree, they were lovers., So when Arwen gave her elaborate necklace to Aragorn, it represented their commitment and their undying love. However, the fact that Arwen gave the Evening Star to Aragorn was much more than an act of rebellion against her father.

As an elf, Arwen was immortal. But Aragorn was a mortal man, though long lived. nothing said elves and men couldn’t marry each other, However, when the man died, the Elf Archer withered in sadness. This is why Elrond opposes their marriage in The Lord of the Rings. She knew that if she married Aragorn, Arwen would give up her immortality. Despite knowing this, Arwen decides to marry the King of Gondor. They spent 122 years together when Aragorn restored the glory of Gondor and Arnor. But in the end, Elrond was right, as Arwen died of a broken heart in year 121 of the Third Age.

Peter Jackson for the necklace seems to have been inspired by another jewel in the form of a stone from The Lord of the Rings Elven, In the books, Galadriel gives Aragorn the green gem set in an eagle-shaped brooch. However, the most important part of the Elfstone was its alternate name, Elessar. So Aragorn got the real name of Elessar and represented his royalty. But in the grand scheme of things, the Elfstone was a relatively minor detail, so Jackson’s decision to replace it with something more significant, like Arwen’s necklace, was appropriate.
