Three-ring Hmong Silver Neckring

Details

This beautiful 3 ring torque, or neckring, was purchased in Laos in the 1980's. It was made at a simple forge by hammering and drawing -- pulling the silver through increasingly smaller holes until it is of the desired size. This torque is handcrafted from silver with a hammered design and features delicately incised flanges on both ends. The rings are fused together. It is likely made from French coins or silver bars.

Among the Hmong in Laos and Thailand, both men and women wear torques and it is often the first piece of jewelry a Hmong child acquires. A silver torque such as this one is worn in times of danger or illness, as the Hmong believe that silver binds a person's souls together, offering protection.

This torque weighs 158 grams. The opening measures 3 1/8 inches.

Thank you for the parcel of above. I adore the necklace of silver beads from the Karen tribe, and would like more or similar.
