Chains and whips might excite Rihanna, but today it’s studs and spikes that are doing it for us, and we’re getting all hot and bothered by this spike choker from up and coming New York based accessories designer Joomi Lim.

The jewellery equivalent of wearing Agent Provocateur undies under a buttoned up trench, this choker mixes the wildly sexy with prim and proper to a dazzling effect.

Working a distinctly tough edge, we love how the chunky silver spikes give a wild, naughty streak to the already sexy choker shape, while a row of 1950’s style crystals gives a nod to old school Hollywood glamour and stops the piece short of getting us too hot under the collar.

This necklace is such a statement piece that it’s practically an outfit in itself. Team with a floor-sweeping straight black maxi dress or a Le Smoking style tuxedo suit for the ultimate in effortless evening elegance, or wear with skin tight jeans and a simple vest by day for a look so rock ‘n’ roll, it’ll make Kate Moss wish she’d invited you to her wedding.

Joomi Lim Spike Necklace, £295, available at Matches.
