Emerald Green Lucretia Choker by Dark Elegance Designs

I'm sure that if you've been reading this blog for quite some time, you've noticed that I adore jewellery. So, as you can imagine, when I was contacted by Rachel from Dark Elegance Designs a few weeks ago asking me if I would like to review one of their beautiful chokers, I jumped at the chance. I've actually been familiar with Dark Elegance Designs for quite some time, although I hadn't previously ordered anything from them (but I did have quite a few items on my wishlist!). I've trying to be good and not order any jewellery until after Christmas!

I chose the Lucretia choker in Emerald Green as it was always the choker I would look at whenever I browsed their website. I'm quite a fan of black and green jewellery at the moment and I was very excited for this to arrive.


The choker features a large bright green stone set in black lace, with a small silver cross suspended on thin draped silver chains. The green stone is set within a beautiful and detailed silver frame. It features a simple lobster claw clasp and can be worn from 13 to 15.5 inches. I wear it on its tightest and it fits me perfectly. I usually have to adapt chokers as my neck is quite small so I was pleasantly surprised.


This choker is incredibly beautiful. It's a perfect balance between detail and simplicity. In particular I love the colour of the stone, I couldn't quite capture just how beautiful it is. The colour looks wonderful against the black lace.  I recently bought a black off the shoulder velvet dress to wear at Christmas and this will match perfectly. I haven't included a full photo of myself wearing it as I've been ill for the past week and I am looking a bit worse for wear to say the least! I will absolutely upload some photos of me wearing it at a later date as it's just too lovely not to. My photos really do not do it justice.


I don't have anything negative to say about this choker. It's very sturdy and feels very well made. I can imagine it lasting an incredibly long time and I'm absolutely not concerned about it breaking on me any time soon!

Overall, I adore this choker. I do not own anything like this, and it's a wonderful addition to my jewellery collection. It's incredibly elegant and elaborate whilst remaining delicate. It's very beautiful. I will be wearing this at Christmas!

This choker costs £24.99 and you can purchase it from their website or Etsy page. Alternatively, you can also purchase it from The Gothic Shop. You can also follow Dark Elegance Designs on Facebook.

Disclosure: I was sent this to review.

  1. It's absolutely beautiful, and looks so lovely against pale skin.

    It's nice to see you back (says the reluctant blogger!), and I do hope you are feeling much better now.

  2. Apologies if this comment comes through twice but Wordpress is being a little temperamental.

    The choker is beautiful, and looks gorgeous next to pale skin.

    It's lovely to see you back and I do hope you are feeling much better.

    1. Blogger seems to be doing that a lot at the moment, most of the comments I receive these days come through twice! It seems to refresh the page without showing that comments have been submitted - I've even had to start copying my comments before I comment on something just in case it doesn't go through!

      It is! I will try and upload some more photos soon so you can see how lovely it is.

      Thank you! I've been struggling to find the time to blog, but now I've finished university for Christmas it is a little easier. I had a dissertation deadline for a draft chapter as well as being ill so things were completely crazy for a bit! I will never complain about having nothing to do ever again!

  4. It's beautiful. Do you know if they do anything similiar with varying stone colours? Unfortunately, I'm not a great fan of green.

    1. Yes, it comes in red, black, purple and blue I think! The details on the website also list that it comes in pearl and white, but I can't seem to see them on the website. They are really pretty! The black looks lovely!

    1. It is! It's a lovely piece. My Christmas list is full of jewellery and books, which isn't good as I'm quickly running out of room in my jewellery box and my shelves are overflowing!
