The door and its delicate silvery design could, though, only be seen under starlight and moonlight. Constructed by an elf called Celebrimbor, it featured a variety of patterns. The crown and stars signify Durin, while the trees with crescent moons stand for the elves, and the single star represents Celebrimor’s House of Fëanor.

Inscribed above the archway were lines of elvish text. The words read, “Ennyn Durin aran Moria. Pedo mellon a minno.” This translates as, “The Doors of Durin, Lord of Moria. Speak, friend, and enter.” This inscription in fact contained the very key for opening the door. The password was “mellon” – the elvish word for “friend.”
