Kerah at her stall

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Talk to Kerah.
  2. Deliver Calcelmo's Ring to Calcelmo in Understone Keep.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Kerah is the owner of the jewelry stall in the Markarth's marketplace. Talk to her and she will share some information about the city and her family with you: "My family came here centuries ago. We've made a good living smithing the silver that flows through the city." If you want to know more about the fancy carvings and stonework, she will recommend that you visit Calcelmo, who knows the history of Markarth better than anyone. At the same time, she has a delivery she needs to make to him. Maybe you can do her a favor.

You can find Calcelmo in Understone Keep. If it is your first time visiting him, he will initially be quite irritated, but will calm down quickly. Then you can tell him about the delivery from Kerah. He will understand why: "Oh, that's right. I keep forgetting to pick that up. Poor Kerah, such a patient woman." Then, he will reward you: "How about some gold? People seem to like that, I notice."


  • After the quest, the ring will be available for purchase from Calcelmo's inventory.
    • PC Only The Unofficial Skyrim Patch, version 1.3.3, addresses this issue. Calcelmo will now equip the ring, which will prevent it.

Quest Stages[edit]

Delivery to Calcelmo (FreeformMarkarthD)
Stage Finishes Quest Journal Entry
Objective 10: Deliver the ring to Calcelmo
  • The following empty quest stages were omitted from the table: 20, 200.
  • Any text displayed in angle brackets (e.g., <Alias=LocationHold>) is dynamically set by the Radiant Quest system, and will be filled in with the appropriate word(s) when seen in game.
  • Not all Journal Entries may appear in your journal; which entries appear and which entries do not depends on the manner in which the quest is done.
  • Stages are not always in order of progress. This is usually the case with quests that have multiple possible outcomes or quests where certain tasks may be done in any order. Some stages may therefore repeat objectives seen in other stages.
  • If an entry is marked as "Finishes Quest" it means the quest disappears from the Active Quest list, but you may still receive new entries for that quest.
  • On the PC, it is possible to use the console to advance through the quest by entering setstage FreeformMarkarthD stage, where stage is the number of the stage you wish to complete. It is not possible to un-complete (i.e. go back) quest stages, but it is possible to clear all stages of the quest using resetquest FreeformMarkarthD.
