Torc Necklace


Also known as torques or neck rings, torcs have been worn as early as the Iron Age. Based on archaeological findings, torcs were originally popular with the Romans and then became very popular again during the Viking age with both the Nordic and Celtic people. Some torcs featured terminals at the ends featuring animal heads, while other torc necklaces would hook together in the back, as seen in this image of the Hoen Viking artifact hoard found in Norway.
