The caduceus was the staff carried by Hermes, the messenger of the gods, as a symbol of peace. Its similarity to the staff of Asclepius the healer resulted in modern times in the adoption of the caduceus as a symbol of the physician. Cufflinks feature a raised 3 dimensional Caduceus on a black enamel background. Cufflinks measure approximately 3/4" diameter. Symbolizing the medical profession and its members, the medical caduceus illustrates the unity of all members and their goal in society; to save as many lives as they can. The people involved include the nurses who assist with the intent to make life as comfortable as they can for patients, the therapists who don’t cut out hearts but put them back together with compassion and everyone else who have sworn to do whatever they can to help those who are hurt in any way. More and more people get hurt everyday, but these people are the ones who are there after every accident, every emergency call and every check up. These people deserve recognition and respect for what they do. Show your gratitude by giving your friends and family in the medical profession a pair of Enamel Medical Caduceus cufflinks.
