The three rings definitively had some preservative powers for Elrond and Galadriel used them to keep their communities pure while all other Elves were fading.Certainly in the First Age, Olurin (Gandalf) wasn't bound to a particular form - he was bound to the world. Most of that order could change forms, pretty much as they pleased - as could Sauron, until he got that power taken away for being naughty...
Right, but even bound they were still immortal. His immortality was not connected to the ring he possessed.
