Elves also became sorrow as the years grew. They had seen much, suffered much, and remembered it all, yet they probably had to see many tragedies repeating themselves (evil lord rises, fails, repents, resents, rises again, gets crushed, second evil lord rises, fails, repents, resents, rises again, gets crushed...)
I remember hearing Miruvor(or was it Grondy?) say that the wisest of the Elves came from the blood of the three kindreds combined (aka Finrod Felagund).
Now we can talk about the three groups of the Eldar again. You see the elves are very much associated with beauty, within and without. The Vanyar, in this sense, would be the carriers of light and bearers of beauty. They'd be the lovers of beauty. The Noldor are the makers and preservers. The Teleri would be the travellers and spreaders of beauty.
It can be understood why the Noldor and Teleri (mostly Sindar) were more moved by greed than the Vanyar, and why Morgoth had a much easier time using them.
Pure Noldors generally had dark hair (though Nerdanel was a redhead).
the first and last of Nerdanel's childred had the reddish hair of her kin.
...referring to the red, red-brown hair of the first, sixth and seventh sons of Fearnor, descending to them from their maternal grandfather, father of Nerdanel, Fearnor's wife...
