When we've got high buns and low necklines, what is the one thing that comes to our minds to complete the chic in the attire? That's right girls, a Choker Necklace.
Choker Necklaces are small bands tied around the neck area. These come in a variety of materials ranging from cotton and velvet to metals like gold and silver. While Chokers are the “in thing" on today's highest fashion platforms, what many people do not know is the history behind it.
Choker Necklaces date way back to the Mesopotamian Era, and were a classic fashion even in Egyptian culture. That's right ladies, don't just flaunt the style, flaunt the saga behind it as well! While these were originally made of gold and precious metals, they started coming in variations over time, each holding its own significance.
For instance, women wore black chokers to pay tribute to guillotine deaths prevalent at the time. In some communities, they were also seen as slave attire due to their binding nature. However, with time, chokers have come to represent a statement of bold fashion, and are worn as a pride by the women who carry it.
