Item details

Handmade

Material

Stainless steel, Titanium

A torc is a neck ornament consisting of "a band of twisted metal, worn especially by the ancient Gauls and Britons." It generally has a rigid structure so it hangs around your neck like a bangle. By capturing free-floating rings at all the junctions of this 6-sided fullpersian variant, the weave becomes semi-rigid. This forces it to keeps a mostly circular arc when worn, but it still lays comfortable against your skin without rubbing or chafing like a traditional torc often does. Due to the rigidity, it cannot be made shorter than 16 inches. And I HIGHLY recommend you add 1-2 inches on when measuring your desired length as it is a thick pattern and compresses when coiled.

The round pattern has a thick ropelike profile, but the weave itself is hollow, so it is not weighty and easy to wear everyday. The links I use for this are polished precision hand-cut stainless steel rings made by Josh Diliberto.

This necklace is also available in titanium! Titanium is 40% lighter weight than stainless steel but also crazy-strong. Titanium chains will be made using all custom hand-cut rings and have a more satin-level shine to it. Titanium is also available in a dark charcoal grey/black tone.

This clasps with a stainless S-Clasp or titanium indestructible toggle bar. If you prefer a stainless steel toggle that I have laser-cut custom for Steampunk Garage, please say so in the "Notes to Seller" box upon Etsy checkout.

-----
Comes with a LIFETIME GUARANTEE against abuse or defects - no questions asked!
-----
Stainless steel and titanium are hypoallergenic.
They will never rust, tarnish or leave black on your skin.
Wear your Steampunk Garage jewelry in the shower, the pool, or even in saltwater and sulfur springs!

We tumble all our rings for 24-48 hours before working with them to remove burrs, cutting oils, and give them a great shine.
