This torque necklace comprises a twisted wire torque that is inset with a turquoise cabochon at each end, and a turquoise and two coral cabochons towards the front.
Two bell-shaped pendants each with suspended fringes terminating in small bells are suspended from the torque on either side of a wide complex mesh chain from which a large wire and granulation-work medallion is suspended. An old, worn, silver coin inscribed in Arabic forms the middle of the medallion.
The torque can be closed by squeezing together the two ends and fastening the hook end into the opposing eyelet. It can be worn without actually being closed.
Seiwert (2009, p. 496) illustrates a related torque.
The example here is in a fine and stable condition.
