The Amulet of Mara is an enchanted amulet and a symbol of Mara, goddess of love. Once the Dragonborn speaks to Maramal about marriage, wearing an amulet of Mara unlocks dialogue with some characters, allowing the option of marriage. An amulet of Mara is acquired from the quest The Book of Love, or one can be purchased for 200 GoldIcon from Maramal. Rarely, some guards wear it, and can be pickpocketed from them. Looting and wearing the enchanted versions of the amulet of Mara found on NPCs will not function like a regular amulet of Mara until Maramal is spoken to.


Because most items spawn randomly, these locations might not be accurate. Possible spawn locations of the amulet of Mara are:


  • General chests
  • In a chest inside Mzinchaleft Depths, in a hidden room underwater in the lower right hand portion of the first area, to the right of the entrance to the zone. Chest is the small one on the nightstand on the left side of the bed.
  • In a chest inside the war quarters in Blackreach.
  • In the chest located in the shack with Boethiath's Champion at Knifepoint Mine, during the quest Boethiah's Calling. Randomized loot not always guaranteed.
  • In a chest at the top of Reachwind Eyrie.
  • In a chest in Nchuand-Zel control room. Chest is in the middle and back of four Dwemer statues. A full set of Dwarven armor can also be found in this room, behind an Expert-locked gate on the right, when facing the statue behind the chest.


Random LootEdit

  • Dwemer cabinets, which contain random amulets and necklaces.
  • The amulet is a random spawn as dungeon loot.
  • Found on a dead Bandit, in a hay cart near a fire, inside Northwatch Keep.
  • Found in one of the two dead Riften Guards in Shor's Watchtower before "meet the men" objective in the quest Compelling Tribute as an Imperial.
  • Also may be found as loot for a dead or alive Whiterun soldier when fighting the first dragon in the main quest at the Western Watchtower.
  • May be found in a chest outside Fort Neugrad.



In The Elder Scrolls V: Hearthfire, an amulet of Mara, two refined malachite ingots and a silver ingot can be used to craft a Shrine of Mara for the cellar of a homestead.


This section contains bugs related to Amulet of Mara. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:

  1. Confirm all bugs with other editors on the talk page before adding them below.
  2. Always try reloading an old save first, before asking for assistance.
  3. Do not discuss possible bug fixes or origins. Leave those and all other first-person-anecdotes on the talk page, not the article.
  4. Always add  360  ,  PS3  , or  PC   to clarify which system the bug appears on.
  • An Amulet of Mara can be disenchanted at an Arcane Enchanter for the Blessing of Mara enchantment, which cannot be enchanted on an item.
  • Some amulets may not register with NPCs that can be married.
    • Solution: if The amulet received from "The Book of Love" and a marriage offer is not given, drop the amulet and retrieve it, or buy a new one from Maramal. It should open up proposal options during conversation.
  • If a randomly spawning Amulet and the one acquired from The Book of Love, are equipped, the inventory shows that both are being worn, instead of splitting the category into two. The 10% increase to Restoration spells does not stack to 20%.
