A choker is a close-fitting necklace, worn high on the neck. This type of jewellery can consist of one or more bands circling the neck. Chokers can be made of a variety of materials, including velvet, beads, metal and leather. They may or may not be adorned with sequins, studs or some kind of pendant and come in a variety of colours. They are popular with girls and teens in general, who often attach similar necklaces to their respective pets, most commonly cats and/or smaller dogs.
