But Fingolfin gleamed beneath it as a star; for his mail was overlaid with silver, and his blue shield was set with crystals; and he drew his sword Ringil, that glittered like ice. - The Silmarillion.

Ringil was the sword Fingolfin, High-King of the Ñoldor.

It was an Elvish sword that bit with a chilling cold, a blade what glittered like ice by the light of the stars. Fingolfin fought Morgoth before the gates of Angband, wounding him seven times. However, Fingolfin was no match for the Dark Lord. Morgoth broke Fingolfin's neck by stepping on it, With his last breath, Fingolfin hewed Morgoth's foot with Ringil, rendering him lame for the rest of his existence.

Ringil's fate is unknown, it may have been broken by Morgoth's foot or it could have been stolen and then experienced a similar fate to the legendary swords Glamdring and Orcrist.
