    Grats. That's it. Peregrine's (falcon's) Diamond (rhombus). Pippin's wife, Diamond of Long Cleeve.

    Could this be Galadriel's swan shaped boat?

    It might have been, but it's not. And your on the right track as it were.

    I used the "?" like we use them in the crossword puzzles around here, so there's a pun (often a bad one) in the clue. You got that I used fairy in sense of fae, sidhe, etc.

    Now, listen to the words.

    Perhaps the ship that carried G, Frodo, Bilbo, et al to Aman, or Vingilot, which Earendil and Elwing sailed to the same destination.

    A little more abstract perhaps? The Moon which was steered like a boat by Tilion?

    Ah, but it wasn't a /fairy/ boat.

    Okay. We have ferry boat and elves. I didn't expect this to be that difficult...

    OK then, how about the ferry boat kept by the Elves of Mirkwood on the Enchanted River?

    No, nor Cirdan's boats at the Grey Havens. I'm looking for a particular boat, ferry as it were.

    Yes, but, it has a name. I won't give credit without it.

    Tol Eressea is the elves ferry boat. Twice Ulmo ferried the elves to Aman. It now lays moored in the Bay of Eldamar.

    First thing that pops in my head is the mithril coat Thorin gave Bilbo. Reckon it ain't gonna be that easy though.

    Shall the answer be the barrels that Thorin and Co. rode down the Running River/one through Mirkwood whose name I have forgotten.... They never mentioned it so I don't know what to call it......

    But yes my answer is Thorin and the company riding in the barrels. That's the first thing to pop into my head.

    It's either that or it's the scales and diamonds that Smaug had covered his body in.

    Bit of a wild stab: could it be the casket of Black Lebethron wood that carried the Crown of Gondor for Aragorns' coronation?

    A casket is definitely a 'container', though I must admit I'm struggling with 'tough', other than the fact that Lebethron was apparently a hardwood.

    Neither casket, nor barrel, nor hide of dragon.

    The clue is metaphorical rather than descriptive. And there is also a bit of word play involved. You are not really looking for a thing.
