The collier is a style of necklace that has taken the world by storm these past few years. It is a style of necklace that fits tight along the neck, emitting the look of a dog collar, or otherwise known as a choker necklace. Collier necklaces come in various styles such as chains, leather, cloth, beads, gems, diamonds, and more. As one can imagine, collier necklaces also come in every color imaginable, and even multiple colors on one necklace alone. A common trend of collier necklaces that are seen in the summer months are flowers or small daisies, and in the winter months, specifically during the holidays are diamond colliers. Furthermore, a new style that has hit retail stores nationwide are name collier necklaces. These typically have a person’s name, or an adjective that describes the person, centered in the middle of the chain. Some of the most name collier necklaces are “mom”, “daughter”, “love”, and “believe”.
