I think it’s safe to say chokers are in right now. All of our 90s and early 2000s dreams have come true since this trend came back. Lizzie McGuire would jump for joy. Thankfully, you don’t have to rock giant hearts or bands of fabric to be the Lizzie of your dreams. Chokers come in all sorts of styles. Check out these classic handmade chokers from Etsy to find the perfect option for you, that you won’t have to worry about seeing on anyone else.
1. A Dainty Stone
This choker is a classic option all your friends will envy. The small stone fits perfectly in the hollow of your neck and comes in both light green and light blue. This is one of the best handmade chokers out there!
2. Dangling Letters
These dangling charm letters are a cool take on the typical personalized name necklace. Rep your name with this choker or whatever word you want.
3. A Simple Sunflower
You can be cutesy or cool without being too in anybody’s face. This small sunflower choker lets your inner free spirit peak out just a bit when you still want to keep things casual.
4. Turquoise Teardrop
I love a cute teardrop stone. They’re the epitome of classic and dainty that can add a bit of bling to any simple outfit. This one comes in turquoise with small gold beads on either side and I’m so into it.
If you like the idea of small and pretty stones, but want a more neutral option, these pearls do just the trick. You can pick from one to three small pearls to hang on the delicate gold choker.
6. Something Longer
Sometimes people don’t like to have chokers right up tight on their neck. Thankfully, despite the name, that’s not your only option. This totally cute handmade choker necklace comes in a longer length that still gives you all the simple style of a choker with a little more room to breathe.
7. Leather Wrap
Chokers that come with leather straps are an adorable choice. With this golden charm you have all the glam you need, but the brown leather gives you rustic and casual notes to pair with it for a totally different style. Plus you can personalize the charm with whatever you want!
8. A Morse Code Message
This choker comes with such a cool idea. Using international morse code, you can have a hidden message in your necklace. The dot and dash charms spell out whatever you want. It’s a super sweet sentiment, but still in a cute and classic styled choker.
9. Another Name Necklace
If you want something more typical than the first personalized name option, go with these cute block letters spelling out your name. It’s still a cute necklace with your name, but you can feel a little more comfortable and casual when you wear it.
10. Many More Pearls
Another pearl option! This one is for those of you who like the pearl look, but want your choker to be a little less dainty and a little more casual and rustic to fit your everyday wear.
11. Sun Charm
If you’re more into charms than small stones, this tiny sun will perfectly fit your style. Ignore the thought that suns are cliche. How could the sun be cliche? This one will look so pretty on and go with anything. This is one of the best handmade chokers on Etsy!
12. Chain of Stones
This choker offers up something new to wearing your favorite stone around your neck. Rather than be in a little droplet, this delicate necklace sports an array of opal “chips” for a more uncut crystal look.
13. Gold and Vintage
For this option you may have to pay a higher price, but you’re definitely paying for a unique look none of your friends will have. The delicate charms of this choker are vintage antiques and super elegant.
14. Rose Gold Globe
The charm of this choker option is a delicate gold globe that comes in a variety of sizes and colors to fit whatever you love. Of course, the rose gold option is ridiculously cute and the choice I would definitely go with. If you like charms, you can’t go wrong with rocking the world around your neck.
15. Black Velvet
If you like a darker look, then handmade chokers like this choker are for you. Live out your inner glam rock or goth vibes in a delicate styling with this velvet band and black charm. You can juxtapose some darkness on a lighter look or go all the way into dark, romantic, and mysterious.
16. Cloud Choker
Maybe it’s just me, but I feel like chokers are a great place in your style to really just go for it. I’m always drawn to weird and unique options like this cloud charm. For sure none of your friends will have anything like it, and it can bring great life to simple outfits. Here’s my pick for the more eclectic of you out there.
17. Blue Druzy Geodes
These geodes take a simple gem choker to the next level. Their bright color and unique shapes are so gorgeous. Rather than a small and pretty stone, this is the real thing.
18. A Lace Choker
The label may say “wedding jewelry,” but who cares about that. This pretty lace could look good with any outfit, even with a pair of ripped jean shorts and a tank top. It adds simple elegance to a gown if that’s what you want, but also just to your basic summer wardrobe. This is one of the best handmade chokers to wear!
19. Rock your Zodiac
Necklaces that have to do with your zodiac are such a cool piece of customization, especially if you’re not interested in wearing your name around you neck. It’s a personalized part of you perfect for display. Rather than just go with your zodiac symbol, this cute choker lines out your star pattern for an even cooler display.
20. Feathers and Suede
This option is a great one to end on because it gives you all of the delicate, trendy styles you want from a choker, but in less expected ways. You’ve got these handmade chokers with turquoise and gold charms but put together in a new way through the feathers and the gold ring they hang from. Plus the band is brown suede. It’ll fit your style perfectly, while being something totally different you can treasure.
When it comes to a trend like chokers, you want to be able to rock one that feels unique and specific to your own style. Luckily there are hundreds of options out there to choose from. Go as personalized as possible with your name or your zodiac, or buy something simple that still feels different like the delicate druzy stones. If none of these fit your fancy, there are approximately 250 pages more to pour through on Etsy, each offering something special that could speak to you.
