Deep Purple Sinistra Choker by Dark Elegance Designs

Some of you may recall that I reviewed the green Lucretia choker from Dark Elegance Designs two years ago. I loved wearing my green choker when my hair was red, so I thought I would invest in another one now my hair is black again. I bought the dark purple Sinistra choker from The Gothic Shop.

I chose the dark purple choker as I thought it would be a wonderful alternative to the green. This choker features a dark purple stone set within an ornate silver frame. A purple teardrop stone is suspended from the lace beneath the silver frame. The choker is made from intricately patterned black lace. Overlapping silver chains hang from the bottom of the lace and frame the purple teardrop at the bottom of the choker. It features a lobster claw clasp and can be worn from 13 to 15.5 inches. It's actually a little big for me (I attached a hoop on the lace so it now fits perfectly), but apparently they do offer a free custom size service which I was not aware of before ordering. 

Unfortunately the only room in my house with decent lighting is the bathroom - and it's still yellow!

The colour of this colour is so incredibly beautiful. It's very difficult to capture. It complements the black lace beautifully and looks wonderful against black hair. It looks especially stunning in sunlight.

This choker is very well made. The lace feels lovely, and the I adore the detailing. This choker is surprisingly delicate and dainty despite its detailing. I'm very petite so I'm glad it isn't too overwhelming!

I'm incredibly happy with this choker, and I don't have a single complaint. It's beautiful, and I adore the colour of the stone.

I bought this choker from The Gothic Shop. It costs £24.99. You can use the code FBKNAV to get 10% off your order. This choker is also available from the Dark Elegance Designs website.

Disclaimer: I bought this choker myself. I am part of the The Gothic Shop's affiliate scheme, but this does not affect my opinion.
