Celtic torque), or neck ring, was an important piece of Celtic jewelry, and was worn before 1200 BC to as late as 600 AD. It was a powerful symbol, perhaps representing the wearer's free-born status, and was often complemented with additional rings worn about the arms and wrists. Torques were made from copper, bronze, silver, and gold. They were worn by both men and women, and are depicted as such in both Classical and Celtic sculptures.
