This is a magnetic choker, made out of a genuine snake leather strap, and it measures just a hair over 1/4″ wide. There is a long and skinny hidden magnet inside of the back ends of this choker, so all you need to do is wrap it around your neck and let the two ends overlap in back – The magnets will automatically connect and hold. Sitting on top of the leather strap is a GORGEOUS Victorian-looking center, which measures approximately 1.25″ tall and wide. It has beautifully detailed scroll and swirl work set into a black-rhodium base (sealed over sterling silver). It is set with approximately 200 tiny round synthetic “diamond” stones, which really shimmer, shine and POP against the darker black background. This is meant to be worn up on the neck as a choker and not down at the base of the neck.
