Lord of the Rings question. Are the three silmarils roughly equel in power to the One Ring?

The silmarils don't really have power as such. They're beautiful gems that contain the light of the Two Trees. They burn any evil creature that touches them, but that's about it. Melkor (later Morgoth) just put them into a crown. If they had any power beside that, he would certainly have used it, or tried to use it.

"Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie."
So, no: definitely NOT equal.
