Medical Staff Jewelry Charm - Bronze. Also known as the caduceus, was a staff carried by the Olympian god Hermes who was a messenger between the gods and humans, and also the patron of travelers. Doctors used to have to travel miles far way to care for the sick, so the symbol had always been associated with doctors and medicine. It has remained recognized ever since, and is still associated with medical organizations and those in the field.
Our bronze is imported from Italy and is a high quality alloy of copper and tin. Our Thai bronze has an anti-tarnish compound mixed into the metal alloy that will delay but not eliminate eventual oxidation.
Length includes 5 mm jump ring. Cast and hand finished in Thailand.
