'We have drunk the cup of parting,' she said, 'and the shadows fall between us. But before you go, I have brought in my ship gifts which the Lord and Lady of the Galadhrim now offer you in memory of Lothlórien.' Then she called to each in turn.

'Here is the gift of Celeborn and Galadriel to the leader of your Company,' she said to Aragorn, and she gave him a sheath that had been made to fit his sword. It was overlaid with a tracery of flowers and leaves wrought of silver and gold, and on it were set elven-runes formed of many gems the name Andúril and the lineage of the sword.

'The blade that is drawn from this sheath shall not be stained or broken even in defeat,' she said.

The Fellowship of the Ring, "Farewell to Lórien"

I was struck by Galadriel's statement that Andúril would not be broken even in defeat, given what happened to Narsil the last time its bearer went to Mordor.

Aragorn Son of Arathorn
"'And to you my other guests I will offer such things as may be found in my armoury. Swords you do not need, but there are helms and coats of mail in cunning work, gifts to my fathers out of Gondor. Choose from these ere we go, and may they serve you well!'"
Théoden, The Two Towers, The King of the Golden Hall

For some reason I can't resist these pictures where makeup artist Jose Perez darkened Aragorn's eyebrows (must be because I really do prefer brunettes!).
