Celtic torque), or neck ring, was an important piece of Celtic jewelry, and was worn before 1200 BC to as late as 600 AD. It was a powerful symbol, perhaps representing the wearer's free-born status, and was often complemented with additional rings worn about the arms and wrists. Torques were made from copper, bronze, silver, and gold. They were worn by both men and women, and are depicted as such in both Classical and Celtic sculptures.

Torque trouvé à Trichtingen, sud-ouest de l’Allemagne (entre 350-100 av. J.-C.) Ce collier est bien différent de celui trouvé à Uri (image précédente). Gainé d’argent il pèse beaucoup plus lourd, près de 7 kg, et ne devait pas être porté. Retrouvé en 1928 dans un marais, l’hypothèse avancée suggère un don votif ou une dédicace à une divinité.
