Colliers de chien

A collier de chien (dog collar) was a type of choker/necklace favoured in the Belle Epoque/Art Nouveau/Edwardian period. It wasn't a type of jewellery much made by Arts and Crafts jewellers of the time, as Arts and Crafts jewellery represented freedom and movement, while colliers de chien represented formality and constriction. Colliers de chien were popular from c1880-1910; in the latter years of this period plaques de cou - a central plaque often worn on a wide ribbon - were popular.
