Most of these black leather chokers are made from very soft leather or suede that even has a lot of give which makes them super comfortable to wear. The thinner ones are of a thicker leather and are more sturdy, but since they're thin, they're also comfortable.The Leopard and Salamander suedes have a shiny pattern printed on them. They sort of sparkle in the light. The Silvery Copper suede has silver and copper printed on it in a leafy filigree pattern. It is more like silver/copper leaf and is somewhat shimmery like glitter.The Shiny Storm Leather has shades of gray intermingling with the black in a shimmering wonderland of shiny, almost sparkling storm. The intriguing depth of this pattern is hard to capture in the photographs.I offer 4 sizes and your choice of finish on the clamps,lobster clasp and extension chain on the plain black leather chokers.
