Amanda’s Style File: Collar Craze

Today’s collar and choker-style necklaces, less formal and more fashion-forward than those that preceded them, are great for bringing in younger, fashionable customers.

The collar and choker-style necklaces on the market today, like this “Whirl” diamond collar in 18-karat yellow gold and diamonds from Carelle, are more casual than the styles that preceded them.

From the runway to red carpets, collar and choker-style necklaces are hotter than ever. While long necklaces and pretty pendants have their place, these styles are putting the “neck” back in necklaces, as they bring attention back up to women’s neck and collar bones.

The hot new styles featured in this Style File are less formal and more fashion-forward than their predecessors. They look great with casual attire as well as with a little black dress, and are a great style to bring in younger, fashion-focused customers.

Here are few examples to get jewelers engaged with this style.
