Two face-to-face serpents entwine themselves decoratively around each other and around a staff that is topped with a sparkling round blue Swarovski crystal. A pair of outstretched wings frame the crystal and give this cut-out pendant its distinctive T-shape. The two tiers of feathers and other select details are enhanced with an antique effect which contrasts dramatically with the crystal's clarity.

The origin of the caduceus symbol goes all the way back to ancient Mesopotamia and a Sumerian god named Ningishzida. But it is Hermes of Greek mythology, as well as Mercury, the messenger god of Roman mythology, that the caduceus is most often associated with. Later, the meaning of the caduceus was expanded even more, becoming the basis of both the astrological symbol for the planet Mercury and also the element mercury.

Note: The caduceus is often confused with – and incorrectly used in place of – the Rod of Asciepius, which is the true symbol of the the medical profession. The Rod of Asciepius, which is used in the logo for the World Health Organization, has only one snake and no wings.

We wanted to give our customers a way of personalizing their pendants, but many of the pieces in our store are textured on the backside, have an uneven surface, or a design on all sides, making it impossible to engrave them.

Our solution to this problem was to offer engravable charms that you can add onto any necklace. They are small, about 1/2" wide (12 mm) and come with free engraving on the front side (backside engraving is available for an additional charge).

We currently only have these in two shapes (a heart or circle), but will be adding more as time goes on. The charms are also engraved in-house and custom fit with findings to match your pendant.

You can choose engravable charm options right on the product page of any pendant. Below are a few photographs of charms we've made for customers in the past, along with their pendants. I've also included a photo of a cute necklace we made for a customer with many of our themed charms.
