Replica of the Celtic Torque of Ipswitch.

The Torques of Ipswitch is an English choker from the Celtic Iron Age and its shape is typical of the late Latène Period around 75 BC.

The Torques of Ipswitch, together with five other Celtic necklaces, was found in 1968 during construction work near the village of the same name in the English county of Suffolk.

Characteristic of the torques of the late Latène period are two twisted rods. This technique results in a high flexibility and the Celtic torques can easily be bent open and closed and thus be put on very well.

This beautiful replica of the Torques of Ipswitch is made of brass, carefully polished to a shine and weighs about 500 gr.

Dimensions: 19 x 18 x 4 cm. For a neck circumference from 50 to 55 cm.

The treasure find of Ipswitch, together with the treasure find of Snettisham, is one of the two most important finds of Celtic golden torques and is now in the British Museum in London.

Torques were an important symbol of power for the Celts of the Latene period and were worn by both high-ranking men and women. Even figures of gods wore necklaces, as the Celtic statue of Glauberg (Germany) shows. The torques of the Celts were usually made of gold and silver and often had artistically decorated end pieces.

Although the Torque is usually associated with the Celts of the Latène period, necklaces were also worn by Scythians and Germanic tribes, and in late antiquity the Torque was a decoration for deserving legionaries in the Roman army.
