Celebrimbor was Curufin's son and Fëanor's grandson. Following the battle of Dagor Bragollach, he settled with his father and uncle Celegorm at Nargothrond, where he remained, denying their actions, after the two sons of Fëanor had been driven out by the crowd.
We find its trace during the founding, around the year 750 of the Second Age, of the Noldorin kingdom of Eregion. He held a prominent position in this kingdom, and he was the most gifted of the Jewelers' Guild. He was, however, misled, like the other artisans of Eregion, by Sauron, who, disguised in a comely form, forged with the Ñoldor the Rings of Power. However, he created the three Elven Rings alone: Narya, the ring of fire, Nenya, the ring of water, and Vilya, the ring of air. Sauron not having participated in their creation, they were preserved from his defilement; but they were nevertheless subject to the unique Ring of Sauron. When he first fingered it, Celebrimbor realized that he had fooled them and hid the Three, giving them to Círdan, Galadriel and Gil-galad respectively.
Wishing to get his hands on the Three, Sauron then invaded the Eriador and devastated the Eregion. Last of all, Celebrimbor fought against Sauron at the entrance to the Mírdain House, but he was defeated and captured. He was mercilessly tortured, but refused to confess where the Three were. After his death, Sauron used his corpse as a banner.
