Blair Drummond Torc Chocker
Choker, brass with semi-matte gold finish. Resemblant of the Iron Age torcs discovered at Blair Drummond.
Scotland’s most important Iron Age gold hoard was discovered in 2009 near the town of Stirling by David Booth using a metal detector. The buried treasure consisted of four gold torcs; neck ornaments dating to around 300-100 BC. Alongside tubular torc fragments and one torc of twisted wires were two made of fine, twisted gold, a style known as ribbon torcs on which this jewellery range is based.
