"Neck corset" manages to somehow sound more like an implement of strangulation than "choker." >_o
The actual piece, though, is definitely not torturous. The pearls are lovely accents. And while I can see a corset-looking clasp (?) in the front, it looks more like the gate to some grand estate. No one has been inside for a while, and the rose bushes are overtaking it in wonderful ways.
