Worn by Celts and Norsemen recorded back as far as 1200 BC to 600 AD. Sometimes referred to as a neck Torc or Torque, these rings are worn on the base of the neck and were considered imbued with powers of independence for the free born, warrior status, and an earthly connection with deities. Worn by both women and men.
Bulky and heavy, not lightweight or dainty at all. Masculine piece of jewelry like a warrior would wear. Excellent value.
I received a coper & brass Torq and couldn't believe the quality, not junk honest Viking jewlery. I have book Viking World and in there they showed 3 Torq with a wolf head on each end Exactly like the ones I purchased from here. They are heavy stiff braid and are worth this price and more.
