Chokers & Collar Necklaces
Bold and beautiful, choker necklaces have been grabbing attention and
giving power to those who wear them for thousands of years. Ancient Egyptian pharaohs
wore jewelry on places of the body that needed protection, believing special powers
would be won. The popularity of collar necklaces came to prominence again during the
French Revolution, then the Victorian era with Queen Victoria painted wearing high-
collar crystal choker necklaces. As fashion trends often do, the vintage choker made
another comeback in 1920s America, and our younger fans may be familiar with studded
choker necklaces in the 1990s.
Sweet Romance’s head jewelry designer, Shelley Cooper, relies on genuine
materials and her exceptional artistry to create designer collar necklaces and
chokers. From fun and whimsical to Gothic and Victorian-inspired choker necklaces and
classic wedding necklaces, we invite you to shop our selection of handmade collar
necklaces. Every design begins as an illustration in Shelley’s sketchbook before being
made into a piece of wearable art for those who love the daily inspiration of jewelry.
