Day Collar

Day Collar

Our Definition

a piece of jewelry or accessory that is worn regularly as a symbol and reminder, frequently of an important and committed dynamic or of a commitment to self-ownership. Generally it is discreet in appearance, often passing for conventional jewelry.

Common Practices

Everyone is different! You'll see this repeated throughout our website and glossary. Common practices involving day collars include, but certainly aren't limited to:
  • Shopping for a piece that will fit in with the wearer’s everyday wardrobe.
  • Deciding on whether this will be for 24/7 wear, or for special occasions, and choosing the materials and durability accordingly.
  • Incorporating locks or screws in place of typical jewelry clasps 

Betty wears a chain bracelet to symbolize her D/s dynamic with her partner while still blending into the dress code at her job as a zoo-keeper.

Frankie wears a delicate chain that fastens with a small lock as a day collar, which serves as a reminder of self-ownership.
