Ah, the gentle art of Fëanorian diplomacy.
Tolkien: any way you slice it.
'As a dead beast Beren lay upon the ground; but Lúthien touching him with her hand aroused him, and he cast aside the wolf-hame. Then he drew forth the knife Angrist; and from the iron claws that held it he cut a Silmaril. As he closed it in his hand, the radiance welled through his living flesh, and his hand became as a shining lamp; but the jewel suffered his touch and hurt him not.' - Of Beren and Lúthien, The Silmarillion.
