SCOD - The Evenstar (and other magical things) Can't Post

Mae govannen. Today's screencap I feel is a peculiar one - one that I'd like some opinions about.



So here we have Aragorn being returned the Evenstar

Now, how exactly is Aragorn holding it? I can see that the necklace is draped over the crevice by his thumb, but I sincerely doubt that that alone would hold the Evenstar in place. Also, it's evident that the Evenstar itself is sort of cradled in his palm (note the shadows and the way it touches his skin). Now, I doubt anybody would normally hold something this way (or maybe I'm wrong), so what is trying to be said here?

Is this meant solely for Eowyn's point-of-view?

Is there something I've missed entirely? (perhaps the actually weight or nature of the Evenstar)

A similar instance happens in Fellowship of the Ring with Bilbo:



This sequence is probably much easier to determine in terms of gravity and magic, but between both the Ring and the Evenstar, what can we make about the jewellery of Middle-Earth?
