The caduceus symbol is originally the symbol of the heralds staff, belonging to Hermes or Mercury in Greek and Roman myths. The caduceus staff may not be the correct and traditional symbol of medicine, but it has been adopted by many organizations as a symbol of healing. Our caduceus cufflinks are stainless steel plated and feature the winged staff with two snakes entwined along the length of the staff. These medical cufflinks would make great gifts for a physician, a nurse, or medical practitioner. If you are big on mythology, then this staff of Hermes would be a big plus for you.
