Who started it? //The Choker

Who started it? //The Choker

The choker dates back 1000s of years to Ancient Egypt. Women wore jewelry (i.e. chokers) on areas of the body they wanted to protect. They felt wearing jewelry (especially gold jewelry) made them powerful. The 90s were full of chokers, and they are back!! Below are paintings by some of my favorite artists & street style images featuring chokers. The last section features shoppable links.  ENJOY!
