Choker

They are necklaces that are tighter on the neck and were very popular in the 90s. This type of necklace usually matches casual and youthful looks, which do not require much seriousness. However, it can also be used on more formal occasions, such as graduations and weddings, if it is made of more sophisticated material, such as silver or metal.

This accessory model is one of the best known and used among men and women. There are several types of chains, with variations in size, spacing between links, finish, and materials, so they can build different looks depending on the chosen characteristics.

Still, in general, necklaces in the form of a chain tend to convey different emotions according to the size and thickness of the jewellery, so that the larger and thicker ones tend to make them look more striking and flashy, while the smaller and thinner ones can represent elegance and casualness.

Collar

It is the most common category of necklaces because it is medium in size and can be found in different materials and characteristics. It is larger than chokers but smaller than long necklaces. In general, this type of necklace usually has single pendants or a set of hanging pendants and can be combined with varied looks, as they are not so flashy and have a medium length.
