'I knew [Boromir's] gear ... One thing only I knew not: a fair belt, as it were of linked golden leaves, about his waist.' ...
'Alas!' said Frodo. 'That was indeed Boromir.... For the golden belt was given to him in Lothlórien by the Lady Galadriel. ... This brooch is of the same workmanship.' He touched the green and silver leaf that fastened his cloak beneath his throat.
Faramir looked closely at it. 'It is beautiful,' he said. 'Yes, 'tis work of the same craft.'
