#REDIRECT [[Nauglamír]]
The '''Nauglafring''' was an earlier version of the [[Nauglamír]]. It was, like the Nauglamír, the object of quarrel between [[Dwarves]] of [[Nogrod]] and [[Elu Thingol]], who at this time in the legendarium (around [[1920]]) was still called Ellu Tinwelint.
+
 
+
It causes the death of Tinwelint as it gets caught behind a tree branch when he is riding outside the [[Girdle of Melian]] and is attacked by the Dwarves. Tinwelint, unhorsed, is slain, after which [[Melian]]'s protection is lifted and [[Doriath]] is sacked. The Nauglafring itself is later lost in the sea.

==Etymology==
+
The word '''Nauglafring''' is [[Goldogrin]], the precursor of [[Noldorin]] (which in turn is the precursor of [[Sindarin]]). The first element is ''[[Naugrim|naugl-]]'', "dwarf", and the second element is ''fring'', "carcanet, necklace".
