Cirdan was supposed to have a beard? Oh, wait, it does say that in the books, doesn't it? *feels stupid*
Well, I guess at this particular point in time he didn't have a beard. I mean, how many thousand years pass between the forging of the Elven rings and the Ring-bearers leaving at the end of LotR? Plenty of time to grow a beard, I think.
Círdan had his beard at the forging I think. It could be after, but no records are made of that. So that is just a new fact PJ thought up I guess. But when Olorin entered middle earth, Círdan gave him the ring of fire, and had a beard on hi face.

Hm, Ive been stupid really, It must have been celebrimbor when he made them. Cirdan gave his ring to Gandalf later, so it must have been Celebrimbor, maker of rings. Question, why didn't celebrimbor wear a ring of his own?
Erm, I had thought that the other elf behind Galadriel in the movie was Celebrimor, but I wasn't sure. I guess now I am more sure that it was though. Why didn't he wear a ring of his own? Eh...I don't really know..heh.

Nope, there were three elven rings. One of them he gave to elrond, one to galadriel and one to cirdan. Cirdan later gave his ring to Gandalf. I wonder why celebrimbor didn't wear one of his own. Could it be that he forsaw his death and didn't want the ring to fall in the hands of sauron?

Celebrimbor gave Nenya to Galadriel after he made the Three because he was in love with her before she married Celeborn. Later when he realized Sauron's decpetion, he guessed that Sauron would be coming after him and he gave the other two to Gil-Galad. Later Gil-Galad gave Vilya to Elrond right before the Last Alliance and when he was dying he gave Narya to Cirdan.

Does any one know the names of the Dwarf-lords? -Sorry if its a stupid question-
Silver flow the streams from Celos to Erui, In the green fields of Lebennin! Tall grows the grass there. In the wind from the Sea The white lilies sway, And the golden bells are shaken of mallos and alfirin In the green fields of Lebennin, In the wind from the Sea!
