ccessory, which was started to be worn even in pre-Christian times! It's about the choker.

How it all began - a short digression into the history of

The whole story of the choker transformations is related to:

  • by the
  • riot by the
  • threat
  • 's power of slavery
  • by the elegance of
  • by the nobility of

It's a mistake to assume that chokers are a legacy of North American Indians. The women of the Padaung tribe still wear such ornaments in the form of rings around their necks. Rings indicate the status of women in the tribe, serve as proof of the unearthly beauty and well-being of the lady.

Wooden, tight around the neck, the rings were worn on the necks of girls from noble families in Mediterranean and Asian countries back in the Ancient World. In those days, a woman with a long neck was also considered a model of beauty and, putting on her neck daughters wooden rings, parents hoped for the successful marriage of their beauties. The presence of a wooden ornament on the neck was evidence of the high position in society.

Some hundred years have passed and the rings around the neck have become an attribute of slaves. In the Thrush of Rome on the slave ring the name of the owner was knocked out. However, after some time the senators canceled such collars-passports, so that the captive inhabitants of Rome could not see how many of them and how few of their owners.

The gloomy Middle Ages revived the chokers, as a means of defense against thieves, robbers and vampires. Rich citizens hammered into the leather strip designed to protect the neck, silver nails, to avoid unpleasant encounters with bloodsuckers and not only. It is possible that the choker then looked like this

The elegant Renaissance changed the purpose of the choker. Now it was an elegant decoration in the form of a velvet ribbon( velvet ribbon) with a pendant, emphasizing the languid pallor of fragile ladies.

And yes-yes-yes! Indian leaders wore chokers from wooden beads, animal claws and bird beaks to protect themselves from evil spirits. In addition, such jewelry could save lives in battle, protecting the neck from a knife or arrow.

It was in the Indian reserves that the "children of flowers" watched all kinds of bracelets-bracelets and chokers. Especially fashionable among hippies of the 60's were tattoo chokers - ornaments that mimicked ornate tattoos.
