Hand Forged Metal Torc
Worn by the ancient Celts as well as the Norse, the Torc was generally a form of status symbol. Whether it was to reflect wealth or power, the idea was that you could instantly see the value of the wearer.
In the modern day, this idea is not lost as there are many ways a person will seek to show their status in society. These torcs serve as a nice link to our ancient ancestors and would not look out of place in the kit of any re-enactor.
Available in either Brass or Steel, these neck rings were hand forged by Max of Great Ash Forge.
