Statement chokers

Dressed up or down, the return of the 90s choker means that neck-hugging necklaces are top of every fashionista's list.

  • Lightweight and amazingly flexible, Marco Bicego’s three-strand Masai choker (£14,600) was handcrafted using Marco’s signature “coil” technique. Engineered to sit like a second skin on the body, thin wires of 18 carat yellow gold are wrapped around to create slinky spirals.
  • NIRAV MODI’s Embrace choker (£36,000) gives off a wonderfully warm glow thanks to the pairing of pink diamonds and rose gold. Each section is made up of thousands of moving parts, assembled painstakingly by hand to ensure smooth movement.
  • A Tiffany classic, the Bow collection has been given an overhaul to give the new jewels a more lifelike feel. In this chic update, a casually tied ribbon, dotted with diamonds, rests comfortably on the collarbone, attached to an open choker in white gold (£8,975).
  • This Legends of Africa necklace (POA) from Bond Street’s VANLELES descends deep into the décolletage. Created in collaboration with Gemfields, it is bedecked in 29.82 carats of emeralds from Zambia – a mix of smooth cabochons, round brilliants and pear shapes.
  • Greek jeweller Nikos Koulis has nailed the choker revival with this effortlessly cool design from the Yesterday collection (£2,400). Set with a luminous emerald surrounded by diamonds, it will go with practically anything.
