Choker necklaces

The chokers are short necklaces that are worn around the neck. In general they are 30 to 35 cm, they can be in gold, coral, diamonds. When did the chokers appear? We see them in 18th century paintings, often worn as ribbons with a pendant or a letter on the ribbon; but in the 19th century they are mostly present in England. In the Belle Époque period it is again the fashion of these short necklaces, or dog collars as they are called in France, they return to the forefront with pearls, stones, lace, diamonds.
