If we go back in History chokers were there since the start of Human Civilization. Isn’t it fun to know that this crazy and classy trend of chokers has always been there? Well, it does fascinate us, and we would like to explore a bit of its history and how this choker necklace fashion evolved to its current status.Choker necklaces were initially crafted for the same purpose as the other ornaments – Protection. You read it right, jewelry ornaments were crafted for the only purpose of style but for protecting individuals in wars and from certain diseases. Few of them wore it to hide their scares. The neck is a vulnerable body part and chokers were made to protect from them later turned into fashion.
The tribal women also used to layer up their necks with beaded and metal chokers to protect themselves from throat disease. Later in the late 19th century, the trend of wearing chokers returned when Princess Alexandra of Denmark started wearing choker necklaces publicly. And in the 1940s the chokers came back with a bang.
This and our trend of choker necklaces have had an impact on the tribal jewelry style as well. The tribal necklaces showcase different kinds and styles in choker necklaces starting from the heavily embellished kuchi chokers to simple hasli chords.

These kinds of chokers belong to the kuchi origin. Usually, these chokers have top embellished with metallic weaving technique and bottom has dangling tassels and bells attached.
