As the amulet has a far higher value than a normal amulet of Arkay, and can be found very early in the game. Without being stolen or pickpocketed, it may be worth selling to a merchant, rather than returning it to Andurs for the paltry reward of 15 (assuming it was not stolen from him after returning). Doing so incurs no penalty.

PS3 Occasionally the amulet will spawn under a wreath, making it unlootable, this glitch can be resolved by using the unrelenting force shout to launch the amulet into an area where it can be looted. Easiest way to get around this is to zoom onto the wreath and pan the camera slowly until you have the option to take the amulet.
