Several examples of objects made of silver are the crown of Elu Thingol of Doriath, the silver harp of the House of the Harp in Gondolin, the Tree of Gondor, according to Bilbo Baggins the habergeon of Eärendil (which, if true, suggests that silver was stronger in Middle-earth than in the real world), and one of the gates of Gondolin. As well, it was often referenced in titles and names (for example Celeborn, silver-tree, Celebrimbor, silver-hand, and Celebrindal, silver-foot).
