In the fictional world of J.R.R. Tolkien, Elwing (in Sindarin, " fog of étoiles" (star-spray)), is the Elf (or more exactly, the Semi-elf) who married Eärendil. It preserved a Silmaril and accompanied Eärendil during its embassy near the Valar.
It was born with the neighborhoods from 500 from the First Age, before the fall of Doriath; it lost its parents Dior Eluchíl (Beren and Lúthien was his/her grandparents) and Nimloth, like its brothers Eluréd and Elurín in attack of Doriath by Wire of Fëanor, but succeeded to flee towards Mouths of Sirion, where it married Eärendil, of which it had two wire, Elrond and Elros.
At the time of the attack of the Mouths by Wire of Fëanor (the third and last massacre of Elves by Elves), whereas Eärendil was at sea, it threw itself in the ocean with Silmaril. Ulmo then changed it into large white bird, and it is in this form that it found her husband and accompanied it in Aman.
Valar granted to him, just as with her husband and his children, the choice of the race to which she wished to belong; it chooses to become an Elf with whole share, and elected residence in a white tower at the edge of the ocean, where it discussed with the birds and flew with them.
