Torc (troq or torque ) from Latin torques, to twist, is a common name for all rigid metal neck rings and it has been used since the Bronze Age.

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.
