Viking torque necklace with wolf heads - $45 (Colorado and 11th)

condition: excellent
The Viking torque that you see here is made of multi-twisted thick silver cables that end in small wolf heads.

The diameter is about 7” across. Total length is about 13”. This makes the neck ring suitable for both women and slim men.

The Viking choker has a slight weight to it but not too heavy and comfortable to wear.

The typical Viking torques are made with several bronze or silver wires twisted together to ensure good flexibility of the choker, which can thus be easily bent open and closed and thus easily put on.

The torque is generally known as the neck ring of the Celtic warrior, but almost all Central European peoples of antiquity also wore a neck ring. Until the Migration Period, torques were even worn by women among the Germanic peoples.
