Offering a necklace from the Golden Triangle region of Thailand, Burma and Laos: a single-tiered Torque in alloy metal, beautifully incised on the front with flowers and geometric designs.

Further embellished with 55 elongated pyramid-shaped, hand-made, dangling chimes, attached to the torque with small rings, that make musical jingling sounds when they touch one another. The neck ring curls back toward the front at each end, forming two decorative, triangular loops from which the clasp is formed by sturdy links and rings that cross a 2 1/4 inch opening at the back of the ring.

The torque is a neck ring, this one having a 16 1/4 inch inside circumference and weighing about 3/4 pounds, comfortable enough that generations of women of the Golden Triangle wore them every day, all the time. Legend has it that the torque is more than just ornamental: that it is worn to keep the soul from escaping.

Purchased from a Baltimore County Estate, this torque necklace has been professionally tested. It is an alloy of copper, nickel, zinc, silver and iron. In wonderful, pre-owned condition!

Securely packaged for safe arrival and insured. Please contact me for overseas or expedited shipping charges.
