Friendships are tested during times of difficulty

The most tested friendship in J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit is that between Bilbo Baggins and Thorin Oakenshield. When Bard the Bowman slayed the fearsome dragon Smaug the Magnificent, Thorin refuses to share the accumulated hoard of Smaug’s treasure. This heightens hostilities between Thorin and the Bard and the elven king Thranduil who both want a share of what Thorin sees as his rightful treasure. Unknown to Thorin, Bilbo had earlier stolen Thorin’s family heirloom, the Arkenstone, from Smaug. Instead of giving it to Thorin as initially intended, Bilbo gives the Arkenstone to the Bard and Thranduil in order to prevent a war. This angers Thorin gravely and he refuses to forgive Bilbo, cursing both him and Gandalf (for insisting that Bilbo be part of Thorin’s company). Eventually the war with the Bard and Thranduil is averted when Gandalf interrupts the hostilities to warn both sides of an impending attack by the Orcs and Wargs. Instead of fighting each other, the factions join forces to face this new impending threat. Thorin would eventually be fatally wounded in what would be known as the Battle of the Five Armies. Before he died, however, he utters the words:

“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world. But, sad or merry, I must leave it now. Farewell.”

Thorin realises his error in placing treasure, gold and silver above friendships and happiness. He forgives Bilbo for his perceived treachery and befriends him for the last time before parting.

The Willing Heart Friendship Ring symbolises the strong bond of friendships and the value that we should place in them.
