Director Peter Jackson did take some artistic liberties in adapting Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings to the screen. For one thing, he replaced Glorfindel with Arwen, and he gave Arwen a beautiful necklace that wasn’t in the book – the Evenstar necklace. Because it is not in the books, the history of the necklace is not clear.
Perhaps it is something like the Vial of Galadriel and captures the light of the evening star in its crystal. The ability of beings and substances to capture and hold light plays a very important role in the broader Tolkien mythology. More likely, though, this is simply a beautiful jewel worn by Arwen Undómiel, which means “Evenstar.”
At the start of The Fellowship of the Ring, Arwen is wearing the Evenstar necklace. When Aragorn departs, she gives him her necklace as a sign of her love and commitment. Arwen’s father, Lord Elrond of Rivendell, convinces Aragorn to breaks off the relationship with Arwen and Aragorn attempts to return the necklace, but she refuses to allow it. Lord Elrond objected to Arwen marrying Aragon because if Arwen married a mortal, she would lose her Elven immortality.
The Evenstar necklace then becomes the symbol of Arwen’s and Aragon’s relationship throughout the movie. eventually being broken when the enemy reveals to Aragorn that Arwen’s life is tied to the outcome of the seemingly hopeless battle with Sauron. At the end of the movie, the relationship between Arwen and Aragorn is joyous and hauntingly beautiful. However, Arwen’s Elven heritage provides a long life that forces her to mourn Aragorn when he dies, and then, she returns to the empty Lorién and dies alone of a broken heart.
