A study of the choker
It is time to put the spotlight on the mainstay piece of our jewellery box – the iconic choker! The jewel that adds definition to your look: with a rock and roll edge when embellished with crystals or sensual appeal when accompanied by a seductive velvet ribbon. Throughout the times, the choker was perceived as a powerful piece of jewellery. A royal gem worn by the queens, a gender-bending statement piece during the 70’s and the all time favourite neck jewel in modern times. It is in fact the key jewellery piece for Spring/Summer 2022, prised by all fashion houses from Tom Ford and Chanel to Saint Laurent and Fendi. Let’s element exceptional chokers!
