(catalogue number: BHJ158)

DREKI Brass TORQUES inspired by Viking art, easily adjustable and comfortable to wear. Torque (troq or torc), from Latin torques - to twist, is a common name for all rigid metal neck rings, that our ancestors had been wearing since the Bronze Age. Torcs were popular with the Romans and it is considered a typical Celtic artefact. It was a symbol of both religious and secular power, worship and protection, as torcs were worn by gods and godesses, heroes, warriors and aristocracy; it represented a high social status and importance.

Dreki means dragon in old Norse language.
