The first jewel dated back to the early centuries of [[Númenor]], and belonged to [[Silmariën]], the daughter of King [[Tar-Elendil]].  From her, it passed to her descendants the [[Lords of Andúnië]].<ref name="Gladden"/>  The last Lord was [[Amandil]], whose son [[Elendil]] escaped the [[Downfall of Númenor]] and became High King of the [[Dúnedain]] in [[Middle-earth]].  He wore the Star of Elendil on his brow in place of a crown, as did his son [[Isildur]] after him.<ref name=eriador>{{App|Eriador}}</ref>

They did not discover the Ring but they brought to him the Star of Elendil and other things.<ref name="Gladden"/>
