Hand armor in Golden Sun and Golden Sun: The Lost Age belong to three classes which distinguish themselves by which individual Adepts can equip them. The pieces of armor listed here belong to the Shield class of hand armor, and as such they are generally equippable by the warrior-style Adepts in each game: Isaac and Garet in the first game and Felix and Piers in the second.

All shields that are counted as "common" are shields that can be bought in unlimited quantities in an armor vendor's Buy menu and are sold without event. All shields that are counted as Artifacts are special, stronger shields that do not appear in the Buy menu. These are bought and sold individually and usually are unique, and if one appears in the Artifacts menu of a town's vendor that one shield can be bought by itself and then be sold by itself anytime afterwards to reappear in the Artifacts menu. The vendor shopkeeper will specifically remark about how rare a find your Artifact is whenever you specifically sell one.

The prices the games assign to each shield are quite reliable indicators of how good each shield is as they measure against each other in actual battle. A shield that is priced higher than another is generally superior to that other shield even if the other shield has a higher physical defense rating than the more expensive shield. Therefore, the following shields are all arranged by price.
