I don't recall offhand if this tidbit was from LotR or The Hobbit, but I do recall from somewhere that Gandalf strongly suspected that Smaug was drawn to the Lonely Mountain in the first place by the aura of power surrounding a Dwarf-ring somewhere in the Dwarf-Lord's hoard.
ICE RoleMaster LOME books were notorious for giving arbitrary (list of) powers for every individuals and items in LotR... (including the infamous Lobelia Baggins Umbrella, strike as a +15 mace iirc).
