Seven for the Dwarf-lords
Seven of the Rings of Power were given to the Dwarf-lords.
These rings inflated their greed, and each became the foundation for a great hoard of treasure. Unfortunately for the dwarves, dragons were as greedy as them, and thus four of the rings were lost to dragons, while the remaining three fell back into Sauron’s hands.
The final ring to be lost, that of Thráin, was thought by the dwarves to have instead been lost by Thrór. Gimli’s cousin Balin (the reason he begins wailing and mourning when the fellowship arrives in Moria) travelled to Moria in part for the mistaken hope of recovering that ring. Sauron’s minions tried to use that ring to bribe dwarves to disclose the whereabouts of Biblo, in hopes of recovering the One Ring.
