Summer 2023 is fast approaching and it’s time to start adding a little something edgy to your wardrobe! Whether you’re planning a summer soirée, attending an outdoor wedding, or even just headed out for brunch with the girls on the weekend, choker necklaces can add style and sophistication to any look. Showcasing timeless looks with modern updates, chokers offer an easy way to add some personality and pizzazz—from chunky faux-leather styles in cheery colors to classic freshwater pearls that dress up a casual top.
Choker necklaces are distinct and can’t be compared to beaded necklaces, chain necklaces, or pearl necklaces. Even though we love all of these styles, choker necklaces have a unique way of turning a pretty outfit into something edgier. Since it’s summer, you’ll want to choose lightweight materials that don’t stick to your skin or burn in the heat!
To get in on 2023’s summer jewelry trend (because who wants dreaded ‘last season' vibes?), take inspiration from our selection of this season's best choker necklaces – perfect for adding customization options and finishing off any outfit!
Choker Necklaces Are Not a New Fashion Trend
At Adina Eden, we’ve been creating choker necklaces for years. Every year, choker necklaces go through reinvention and reiteration. But did you know choker necklaces have actually been around for hundreds of years? Their history spans way, way back. Since its existence, one thing remains the same: choker necklaces have been fastened close to the neck.
In the 20s, women wore beaded or ribbon chokers. In the 40s, chokers were introduced to new materials such as pearls, diamonds, and velvet. In the 90s, chokers were popularly made from a plastic stretchy design.
In recent years, choker necklaces have been popping up everywhere, from the runway to the streets. This jewelry trend is both elegant and edgy, making a statement with any outfit. These necklaces come in a variety of styles, from delicate and minimal to bold and extravagant. Choker necklaces aren’t just edgy like they once were in the 90s — they can be dainty and delicate too!

How to Choose the Perfect Choker
When it comes to choosing the perfect choker, there are a few things to consider. First, think about the occasion for which you'll be wearing it. Is it a casual outing or a formal event? This will help determine the type of material and design you should go for. For example, a more formal event might call for a pearl choker while a more casual event might call for something beaded.
Next, consider the length of the choker. Do you prefer a closer fit or one with a bit more breathing room? Pay attention to the closure of the choker as well. Some have adjustable closures, while others have a fixed length. Will someone be there to help you clasp the choker in place? It might be a struggle to do it yourself! Find something that’s easy to take on and off.
Lastly, think about your personal style. Do you prefer a classic and simple design, or something more bold and daring? With these factors in mind, you'll be able to choose a choker that perfectly complements your outfit and personality.
