Torcs, also called Torq or Torque, were worn in ancient Briton and Europe, some 2000 years ago, particularly by the Gauls and Vikings. They were generally a single piece or strands of metal, twisted together, to form a large, rigid ring.
This understated, stylish neck torc is made with copper wire, which I have hand forged, forming large open spirals in an asymmetrical design on the front. The hammering on the ends of the piece has created a tapered widening on these sections.
The Torc has an inner circumference of 14 1/2”, including the 2” gap.
This item comes in a jewellery box.
