Modern Caduceus Medallion Charm


The Caduceus has its roots in Greek mythology. It's a staff entwined with two serpents and topped with wings. This symbol was associated with Hermes, the messenger god. It arose in the U.S. in the early 20th century when it was adopted by the U.S. Army Medical Corps. This happened due to a mix-up with another similar symbol, the Rod of Asclepius, which features a single serpent coiled around a staff and is the true ancient symbol of medicine. Despite this, the Caduceus has persistently been used in various medical and healing contexts in the United States, especially in nursing symbols and logos.

    18K Gold over Eco-Brass: Gold jewelry is strengthened with other alloys, or metal mixtures, because pure gold is too soft for daily wear. Our 18 Karat gold is 75% pure gold. We work with recycled eco-brass to reduce our environmental impact and to offer our styles more affordably.

    Gemstones: All of our gemstones are lab-grown, genuine AAA grade and offer a remarkably similar appearance to mined gemstones. Plus, they have the added benefits of being fully traceable and manufactured in controlled conditions.
