Viking Age Dragon Cuff

Viking Age Dragon Cuff



Viking Age torcs (also spelled torq or torque) are large rigid neck or wrist rings typically made from strands of metal twisted together.

ARTIST NOTE: This type of torc was traditionally not removed - they were worn in declaration of fealty to the king or jarl or for some, gifted from their chief denoting them as an elite warrior.
Sterling is malleable - this particular cuff can be gently squeezed to customize fit for perfect permanent wear.

Chris and Allison (owners of Last Outpost) exchanged a set and have worn them for many years without removal. Fealty to each other.

A historical reproduction from the Viking Age original (which was covered in museum wax, delicately molded, and completely unharmed!) this cuff is a beautiful example of a popular Kievan Rus torc design. Hand forged and tooled, two dragon heads ("zoomorphic terminations") are accented by stamped detailing around the body of the bracelet. 

Cast in solid nickle-free artisan sterling silver. To imitate the age and accentuate the pitted texture of the original, each bracelet undergoes a raw process of antiquing to make it unique - blackened patina and texture will vary.
