Description

Breathtaking thick ancient Greek Lion's head torc bracelet. Sterling silver

This piece belongs to a fabulous range of torc jewelry made by a workshop in Greece with a renown specialty towards torcs for over half a century. Such intricate and quality-made pieces demonstrate the characteristic unique value of greek artisan silversmithing with all its diachronic finess.

Torc jewelry describes ancient jewelry that was open ended in the front (as necklaces or bracelets) and usually contained decorative ornate animal heads on either side of the opening. This motif renders the attributes of design and decoration of gold and silver artifacts from the archaic period. There are great similarities found between celtic and Greek torcs of this type, as this rhythm was known to have existed all over Europe. The oldest type of torc (or torque latin) jewelry known were excavated in classical Greek burial tombs. Famous celric torcs, much later were also found in tombs of Celtic princes. Many historians argue that they were a sign of nobility while others suggest the torc to have been a decoration awarded to warriors for their deeds in battle. Before this predominantly masculine form of decoration, torc jewelry is know to have also been a feminine form of jewelry (before 4 B.C)

  • Pipe thickness: 7mm (0.28 inches)
