"there are Tolkien's latest thoughts, his best thoughts, and his published thoughts and these are not necessarily the same." — Tolkien's Legendarium
This article is non-canon.

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 1917) was still called 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.
