dog col·lar | ˈdȯg kä-lər
A snug necklace made either of rows of pearls or beads, which is usually worn high up on the neck
Dog collars came into fashion during the Late Victorian and early Edwardian periods when Queen Alexandra of Denmark, how later became queen consort of the UK. She had a substantial scar on her neck that it was believed she was hiding and wore a range of different types of necklaces to cover it. She was known for her long, graceful neck, which she emphasized with jewelry. Sometimes a ribbon is used with a jewel in the front. Dog collars are also commonly known as wide chokers. Dog collar necklaces today are those that lie flat against the body instead of hanging loosely, generally meaning the chain is shorter - usually between 14-18 inches in length and designs to resemble the collar of a shirt or similar garment.
