Exactly what is it about this style of jewellery that makes it "fashionable or classic" for a British Princess, but "definitely not appropriate" for a Moroccan Princess?

i understand well what you mean layla27. this design isn't common in morocco. there are some worn by berber but they are very different.

what i don't like (personal opinion) is the combination of hair up and the chocker tight around her neck. it shows her neck even longer and the look stretched.

diana wore it beautifuly. short hair and her face shape gives softness for the look.

There are certains types and styles of jewlery that are worn with a Kaftan, and some styles are more appropriate for old ladies than for young one. Most moroccan ladies know about it and know the Do's and Don'ts. This one is a Do not unless you are 60 years old :).

Wow thanks guys! I thought Salma's choker and earrings were saphires like Diana's set but I guess they're emeralds, very beautiful!

And Mademoiselle Lilo Salma's necklace in your pics, is that a design or an Arabic word?

Why is it inappropriate? I thought it was beautiful on her neck. On one hand Moroccans want their king to modernize and on the other hand as soom as Salma or someone breaks tradition - you hear complaints. You can't wear a choker until you are 60 years old in Morocco?

Apparently not. I wonder when this rule was introduced?

well, for those who aren't moroccan it's difficult to understand layla27 post.
and for those who are moroccan, take it this way: it's a question of taste.

it's common for european ladies, princesses or not, to wear chockers. since they wear uncover dress at the top, so it's evident to see their jewel and it's goes well with their type of dress.

with caftan, it's difficult. that's why moroccan don't wear it and it's not common. plus it's true i saw old ladies wear chockers more than young ladies.

imo, chocker isn't appropriate with traditional caftan. it doesn't look nice.

and i don't see what's the relation with a modern king with letting to his wife wear chocker?? does the chocker this days a proof of modernisation

Without letting the great choker debate overrun the thread, it must be said that 'questions of taste' and 'inappropriateness' are two quite different things.

In the absence of anything else to criticise Lalla Salma, I suspect the choker has been chosen as the weapon du jour.

Well you know it's your proper opinion

i'm surprise to hear such comment from a moderator here in this special thread and never in others threads when other princesses are ciriticized about their "errors" in jewel, hair and so.

each time they do mistakes shall we say "it's the weapon du jour"

any way, it's usual salma does mistakes, either wearing modern suits or traditional one. it isn't a surprise that she comes with strange combination often

Clymene, don't get on your horses please. Every country has its own styles of jewlery and clothes. Sometimes mixing diffrent styles can be a good idea, others it is not. Usually, only old moroccan ladies wear chokers made out of pearls. Young ladies have other styles that are considered more suitable.
As Zineb said, if you are not moroccan you can get this idea, but to make it more clear, imagine yourself wearing a t-shirt, jeans, baskets and putting a pearly choker on your neck. How would that look to others ?

Haha! Layla, je ne "monte pas sur mes grands chevaux". I'm a Moroccan! And I have seen this kind of jewelry worn by old ladies as well as young ladies more than a few times.
