A Guardian Circlet is a Circlet-class headwear available in both Golden Sun and Golden Sun: The Lost Age. It is sold in armor vendors at Tolbi in Golden Sun and at Apojii Islands in The Lost Age. This circlet can be equipped on all mage-style Adepts in both games, namely Ivan and Mia in the first game, together with Jenna and Sheba in the second. It increases the equipped Adept's base Defense rating by 25 points. Its buy value is 3400 coins and its sell value is 2550 coins.
In Golden Sun when it can first be bought in Tolbi, you really should not buy Guardian Circlet until, at the very least, after you've redeemed your Lucky Medals at the minigame at Tolbi Spring, which can easily net you large amounts of strong equipment Artifacts, because superior headwear for Ivan and Mia to equip are Ninja Hoods and Glittering Tiaras. If you can get a Glittering Tiara, you would get a circlet even better than a Guardian Circlet and for no money spent at all, but if not, then you can consider investing in a Guardian Circlet or two.
In Golden Sun: The Lost Age, Guardian Circlets can first be bought in Apojii Islands, meaning they are available to buy as soon as you get the Lemurian Ship to sail the Great Eastern Sea with. The fact Jenna and Sheba can be equipped with artifacts about as strong as a Guardian Circlet (the Nurse's Cap and Clarity Circlet in particular) would make it not worth buying for that much money on its own, but what makes it furthermore less useful as an item is the fact that in the town Izumo elsewhere in the Great Eastern Sea, which becomes accessible at the same time as Apojii Islands, you can buy stronger Platinum Circlets, and a Platinum Circlet would very much be a great upgrade to Jenna's Nurse's Cap.
