    It's in the books. In the Sil too. It's the ring of Barahir. Finrod gave it to Barahir for saving his life. It was passed down through the line and carried on all the way to Aragorn.

    It is the ring of Barahir. It was given to Barahir, a man, by Finrod Felagund when he rescued him at the Dagor Bragollach, which was a great battle during the Wars of Beleriand. This information is from The Silmarillion.

    A gift to Barahir and his descendants by Finrod Felagund, in reward for the saving of his life in the Dagor Bragollach. The Ring was used as a token by Barahir's son Beren Erchamion when he sought Finrod's aid in the Quest of the Silmaril, and passed down by his descendants for thousands of years. It was still an heirloom of the House of Isildur in the Third Age.

    "green jewels gleamed there that the Noldor had devised in Valinor. For this ring was like to twin serpents, whose eyes were emeralds, and their heads met beneath a crown of golden flowers, that the one upheld and the other devoured; that was the badge of Finarfin and his house.”

    Didn't Aragorn give the ring of Bahir to Arwen as a sign of their love, thought I read
    that in the appendecies of LOTR, though I may be mistaken, haven't read the book
    for a while, and I don't have it here with me. I'll check it up when I come home from
    school.

    I was right!

    In Appendecies B, under The Third Age, in the year 2980 it says:

    Sorry if the translation is bad, I only have the Norwegian ed. of the book.

    interesting....I guess PJ figured Aragorn needed a ring to show his status since he didn't give him his sword.

    i bought the ring and it looks awesome, but it doesnt quit fit the description. there is a lot of history involved with that ring. i would suggest looking for an encyclopedia of M.E. and it would probably account for the whole history of it.

    yeah they talk about it a little bit...also in the books arwen doesn't give aragorn the evenstar, does she? doesn't she (or galadriel) give him a green stone called the Elfstone?
    anyway,
    here's more repetitive information! :-D
    (from here: http://www.glyphweb.com/arda/default.htm )

    Dates: Given to Barahir in the winter of I 455
    Still held by his descendants into the Fourth Age

    Origins: Originally the ring of Finrod Felagund

    House: Handed down through the descendants of the House of Bëor
    Pronunciation: 'Barahir' is pronounced 'ba'raheer'

    Bio: A gift to Barahir and his descendants by Finrod Felagund, in reward for the saving of his life in the Dagor Bragollach. The Ring was used as a token by Barahir's son Beren Erchamion when he sought Finrod's aid in the Quest of the Silmaril, and passed down by his descendants for thousands of years. It was still an heirloom of the House of Isildur in the Third Age.
