The biggest news in jewelry this season is by far the choker, rising from an outdated piece you might find rummaging through your mother’s closet to the most desirable neckwear to pair with everything from jeans to cocktail frocks. Most would be quick to associate the choker with 90’s grunge, but the one’s we’re favoring are more aligned with the Victorian era- ornate, almost gothic pieces that hold a vintage allure. These are bold designs that cover most of the neck, unlike the thin bands popularized in recent past. It may be just a necklace, but it represents fashion’s shift from the streamlined and minimal to the glamorous and exciting. We’re looking forward to a Fall and Winter overflowing with luxury, so why not start from the neck?
