Gandalf and Narya Can't Post

Hi all! I have a question, and am hoping that some of you knowledgeable RR peeps will be able to give me the answer. Please bear with me, as my knowledge of information outside what is presented in the main text of Lord of the Rings is sketchy, and even there, I can't remember everything (shock horror Evil)...
If Frodo was able to sense Galadriel's possession of Nenya, why could he not tell that Gandalf had Narya (which I believe was given to him by Cirdan)? Is this because either Gandalf did not wear his ring, or because Frodo could only see Nenya due to the fact that he was a ring bearer and Galadriel allowed him to see it, or is there another explanation altogether? I hope this makes sense, and thanks in advance Smile
