This question already has an answer here:
- Why weren't more Rings of Power forged? 2 answers
I have a question concerning the creation of rings in the Lord of the Rings. It's, at least, hinted that the reason the Elves depart for Valinor after the demise of Sauron is because their Rings lose their power of preservation, hence the enchantments on Lothlorien would eventually wane, making it less like Valinor. But why can't they create more? Lets look at the Facts:
Fact 1 : We know that Celebrimbor is the only Elf that can forge the rings since Sauron under the guise of Annatar taught him how to. We also know that Celebrimbor was killed by Sauron before he could reveal this knowledge. However, Elves can't truly die until the end of the world and are lingering about in Valinor and I am sure that's where Celebrimbor is.
Fact 2: We know that Elves can go to Valinor and come back to Middle-earth since the Noldor have done precisely this.
So my question is, Why can't an Elf go to Valinor, learn the secret of forging rings from Celebrimbor, come back to Middle-earth and forge new ones?
Some are suggesting this question is a duplicate but I don't see how. I am suggesting a possibility where an opportunity was indeed present. Answers such as the elves fearing the past does not seem too convincing to me, after all it was a Maiar that got corrupted not the ring wearing elves. Why would they doubt themselves?
