A choker is a close-fitting necklace worn around the neck. They can be adorned in a variety of ways, including with sequins, studs, or a pendant. They have been around for thousands of years, first gracing the world's earliest civilizations. Often made with gold or lapis, the necklaces were thought to be protective and instilled with special powers. Historically, they were associated with high fashion. However, in the late 19th century, a plain, thin red, or black ribbon choker had ties to prostitution. In Native American culture, chokers functioned as a form of protection for tribal warriors, guarding the jugular and deflecting arrows from the neck in battle. Also, it was thought to protect the voice and provide great speaking abilities to the wearer. The bone-choker would guide the warrior to speak the truth directly from the heart.
One of the first type of beads that were made was bone beads. These beads are made from actual bones, which are shaped and threaded to use in decorating. Most modern bone beads are a byproduct of the food industry. Bone beads are often soaked in tea, coffee or ink to change the color.
Red is one of the top two favorite colors of all people. Since red is the color of blood, it has historically been associated with sacrifice, danger and courage. Modern surveys in Europe and the United States show red is also the color most commonly associated with heat, activity, passion, sexuality, anger, love and joy. In fashion, it is color of the nobility.
