If a divination spell is attempted against the wearer, the caster of the divination must succeed on a caster level check (1d20 + caster level) against a DC of 19 (as if the wearer had cast nondetection on herself ).

However:

If you cast nondetection on yourself or on an item currently in your possession, the DC is 15 + your caster level.

So, shouldn't the DC for the Amulet be 24? The item is Caster Level 8th.

Nah. This is similar to how the person who brews a potion sets the parameters of the spell. I have no problem with the person wearing the amulet NOT being the spellcaster. They didn't cast the spell, after all.


Then this portion "as if the wearer had cast nondetection on herself" needs to be removed.

That's describing the mechanic it's emulating, not discussing the items caster level. AKA the Nondetection as if it was cast upon your person and not on the amulet or the area the amulet was in so it's powers affect both you and your gear.


Then it should read as if the caster had cast it upon the bearer.
