Leave it to Jennifer Fisher to create something so remarkably fresh, coveted, and modern with a simple 180-degree turn. The jewelry designer took a classic gold choker and spun it around. The result? A backwards piece so fashion-forward that it has found fans in celebs like Emma Watson, Rihanna, and Elizabeth Banks (above).

Cuffed around their necks, each accented their varied looks with a Jennifer Fisher reverse choker ($200; Watson wore hers with an off-the-shoulder Balenciaga design, while Rihanna elevated an army-green Jason Wu suede coat with hers. And Banks committed to an all-over metallic theme by pairing hers with a rose gold Monique Lhuillier frock. Sleek, minimalist, and impactful, reverse chokers are as versatile as they come—perfect for both the office and after-hour events.

With the stars as our guide, we sought out playful derivatives of the original, from pearl-studded pieces to ones duo-ended with semi-precious stones or rhinestones. And bonus! It acts as a two-in-one necklace: Reverse the reverse choker for a traditional look. Shop our picks below:
