Circlets are crowns that appear in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


Circlets are made from precious metals such as silver and gold, and precious gems, such as emeralds and sapphires. While most NPCs do not wear circlets, many of the Jarls do, barring Ulfric Stormcloak and Idgrod Ravencrone, who do not wear a circlet. Circlets also vary slightly in size from each other; the Copper and Moonstone circlet being slightly larger in size than the Copper and Onyx circlet.


Both unenchanted and enchanted circlets can be found as random loot in dungeons, and enchanted ones can be bought from general goods merchants. Occasionally, they may be a reward for completing a side quest or miscellaneous quest. Unlike most other jewelry, they cannot be bought at most jewelers (for instance, Madesi) and circlets cannot be crafted at a blacksmith forge.

  • Circlets can be worn with the Penitus Oculatus helmet or a Falmer Helmet (but not a Falmer Hardened Helm) while the benefits from both items will still be retained.
  •  360   Although they shrink to fit Khajiit heads without a hairstyle, circlets "hover" over an inch in the back of human and elven heads with the "shaved" hairstyle.
  •  360   Circlets do not fit Argonian heads properly: they fit on the forehead fine, though they clip in quite noticeably in the back of the head.
