Celtic Neck Torcs

Our traditional Celtic torcs are hand-made to order. Common throughout the ancient celtic world, the torc was not only a fine piece of artwork and jewelry, but a symbol of a person's status and standing in society. Order yours made in bronze or sterling silver as you see fit. To order, give the actual measurement around the neck where the neck and shoulders meet (similar to measuring neck size for a dress-shirt). Your torc will be made based on this measurement, to rest loosely just at the collar bone. Each torc is handcrafted to order by a very skilled but very busy craftsman. Please allow up to 8 weeks to receive your order.
