Sterling silver domed torc shaped tie pin. The torc is one of the most prestigious items of Celtic jewelry. The Celts would pass their torcs on to their sons and it was considered a badge of leadership. Torcs were also believed to act as a talisman, providing the wearer with some mystical form of protection. Some Celtic warriors would go naked into battle wearing only a torc on their neck!
This tie pin was handmade by an Irish silversmith and like all our jewelry bears a full Irish hallmark from the Irish Assay Office in Dublin castle.
