Jewel of the day: Blossom Box Princess Choker Necklace

If you’re going to succumb to the choker trend, you may as well do it with some regal intent. This piece by Indian designer Blossom Box has a bit of a Mughal twist to its design: it’s gold plated with faux pearls and crystals, and is a one size fits all piece with an adjustable chain.

This sells for USD$150.

 

Jewel of the day: Vjera Vilicnik Red Velvet Roses Choker

Vjera Vilicnik was trained in the art of haute couture embroiders at the Ecole Lesage. This pretty choker, a velvet ribbon with three silk chiffon handmade flowers, is a simple but effective take on the choker trend and sells for a very reasonable £30.

 

Jewel of the day: Thacker New York Loveknot Choker

I’m all for ornate, but sometimes simple speaks volumes. This choker by Thacker New York is a collaboration with another jeweller, Flaca Jewelry. Made of brass, it’s “inspired by the beauty of love and promises kept.”

This sells for USD$158, and there are other rings and a bracelet in the same collection.

Jewel of the day: Love, Lisa Barbed Wire Choker

Chokers show no sign of flattening out as a trend, and this one has a tiny twist: a barbed wire design. By Love, Lisa, it is 6″ with a gunmetal lobster clasp closure set with black stones. The charm shown must be purchased separately (but it does look very cool with this piece). The necklace alone sells for USD$74.

 

Jewel of the day: Amarillo Jewelry Star Sisters Choker Necklace

So chokers are definitely in, but so is layering and stacking a bunch of delicate choker length necklaces to be worn at the same time. The Star Sisters piece is shown in this photo second down from the top (and all the necklaces are sold separately). If tasteful imagery isn’t your thing, they also sell a choker that spells out fuck. Because … you never know when you need to let people know that, all the time.

This is available in either sterling silver, or gold plated sterling. It sells for USD$188.

Jewel of the day: Stargaze Jewelry Opal Lili Choker Necklace

I am a sucker for opals and this is a pretty way to have or gift one at a good price. By Stargaze Jewelry, it’s available in either a gold or silver plated (over brass) 14 inch chain with a two inch extender. The size of the opal is not noted.

This sells for USD$39 and at the time of this writing, they were having a 40% off sale (which may not apply by the time this is posted).

Jewel of the day: Kathy Rose Rattlesnake Choker

I’m a fan of baguette cut stones and here they are used to good effect in a collar by Kathy Rose, outlining the “spine” of a rattlesnake in sterling silver and black diamonds.

Available exclusively at LA’s Roseark, this sells for USD$26,000.

Jewel of the day: Chan Luu Metallic Grey Floral Lace Choker

If I was going to wear a choker (which is probably unlikely as like the late Nora Ephron, I’ve come to realize I also feel bad about my neck ), it would probably be something like this one. By Chan Luu, it’s a strip of metallic floral lace embellished with Swarovski crystals. It measures 11 5/8″ – 14 1/4″ in length and is approximately 1 1/4″ wide. This sells for USD$115.

Jewel of the day: Baublebar Morgause Bib Necklace

Tis the season for dressing up and parties and generally anticipating the upcoming holidays. So if you needed a reason to break out the glitz, the next month or so should amply provide many.

This glitzy choker necklace from Baublebar ticks all the boxes for a festive holiday look. (Well, except for delicate. You’re out of luck if that’s one of your requirements.)

It is made with a zinc setting and acrylic (not glass) stones, but for USD$68, it provides the bling laden look you are probably seeing if this appeals. A merry and happy whatever it is you celebrate!

Jewel of the day: Annelise Michelson Algae Sea Leaf Choker

From Annelise Michelson‘s Algae collection comes this sea leaf choker (there are other pieces in the collection with the same motif). Not sure how comfortable this would be to wear but I like the look of it, standing up on the neck instead of draping downward. It’s made with silver or gold plated brass and sells for €1,125.
