Head armor in the Golden Sun series belong to multiple classes which distinguish themselves by which individual Adepts can equip them. The pieces of armor listed here belong to the Circlet class of head armor, most which can be equipped by all mage-style Adepts to date: Ivan and Mia in the first gameJenna and Sheba in the second gameKarisRiefAmiti, and Himi in the third game. Two circlets (both with the word "tiara" in their names) are exclusive to females and are additionally available to Sveta.

All circlets that are counted as "common" are circlets that can be bought in unlimited quantities in an armor vendor's Buy menu and are sold without event. All circlets that are counted as Artifacts are special, stronger circlets 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 circlet 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 circlet are quite reliable indicators of how good each circlet is as they measure against each other in actual battle. A circlet that is priced higher than another is generally superior to that other circlet even if the other circlet has a higher physical defense rating than the more expensive circlet. Therefore, the following circlets are all arranged by price. Also, they are divided into groups based on what game they first appear in. Keep in mind that many of these pieces of headgear continue to be used in later games, even if they are not listed under that game's list of Circlets.
