The Tears of Elénaril
When the Elven sorceress Elénaril wed her true love, much rejoicing occurred. Her husband, Nym Moonglarmer, expected many years with his wife but fate would not accommodate them.
Struck down by a strange, wasting disease after combating demons, Nym tended Elénaril upon her deathbed. Her last act before she passed was to collect his tears into physical form and create a pair of silvery earrings.
It is said she wove a great enchantment into the pair of them, and that enchantment might have endured if Miyeritar had not been destroyed and one of the earrings lost for all time.
