You will receive a collar I will make that is like the collar pictured. This collar will work best when you order it just 1/2 inch larger than the neck as measured at the level of the Adam's apple. This this collar is intended to sit high up at the mid level between chin and hollow of the throat.
This collar has decorative bails riveted to the back to serve as end loops for the surgical stainless steel repurposed body piercing component used as a clasp.
This ring requires a special tool called ring opening pliers to operate. To see how this works go here: You can also find a video showing how to open and close one of these rings on YouTube. www.youtube.com/watch?v=43XkD3UeG7I.
If I still have some in stock, you can purchase a pair of ring opening pliers from the Padlocks and Clasps section of my shop. Pliers like these are also available through a large number of other online vendors who carry body piercing tools and supplies.
Be very careful not to squeeze too hard when using these pliers. You can accidentally open the ring too far for the captive segment to be held securely in place. It is tension that keeps these rings closed. If you do accidentally open the clasp too far. There is another tool called ring closing pliers that you may want to locate. I do not carry those in my shop.
Each individual collar I craft is a piece of jewelry in its own right. My locking slave collars are made to be public or day collars. These collars are precious jewelry and must not be used for bondage play. Each collar will distort in shape and could also break if used for any purpose other than adornment.
To assure the ideal fit for this collar please take care in measuring the intended recipients neck as instructed below.
1. Use a cloth measuring tape (tailors or sewers tape measure) for best accuracy.
2. Lay the tape around the neck mid way between the jawline and the hollow of the throat.
A. Don't pull the tape tight but rather ensure it lays flat against the skin all the way around the neck.
B. Don't leave any slack and ensure you don't have a finger or thumb between the tape and the skin.
3. Add .5 inches to the resulting measurement to get the proper size to order for this collar.
EX. 13 inch neck at level of Adam's Apple gets plus .5" means you should order a 13.5 inch collar
*****Warning use extreme caution when wearing one of these locking day collars. Any item worn around the neck can be a choking/strangulation hazard. Ensure there is a key within reach at all times in case of accident, and never wear this locked while alone.*******
Allow 5-8 weeks for receipt of this item.
All of my made-to-order pieces take 3-4 weeks for me to process prior to
shipping. This is for 4 reasons:
1. I'm nearly always running a queue of 25-35 custom orders and I do each on a first order in first order out basis.
2. I run every aspect of this business all by myself in addition to managing my family. So I have to build in time to handle all the administrative duties as well as making each piece by hand.
3. I also like to maintain the utmost quality and I have learned that rushing things brings on mistakes and frustration for both me and my clients.
4. I order in all the materials for each custom client as needed and since I won't know what I'll need until something is purchased I, too, have to wait for the supplies to arrive.
Shipping speeds after that depend on where you are in the world and on what shipping options you select during the checkout process.
Also items going overseas may be subject to additional customs fees, which I am unable to predict or handle on my end for you. This sometimes means that customs officials will hold the package until they have received the customs duties. In my past experiences the client is rarely notified about this in a timely manner. So you will want to track the package both with the USPS and with your country's postal organization(s). For example with items going to the UK the package tracking switches from the USPS to Royal Mail once in the UK. Many countries in our modern age have several different organizations handling mail, so you may have to check with more than one carrier before you find which one is tracking your package.
All orders ship using the United States Postal Service (USPS.COM) Please note that Priority mail international takes 6-10 days for delivery and tracking is not available. Shipping upgrades for faster speeds and increased tracking are available during the checkout process.
****Overseas Clients, your country may asses import taxes or duties on items shipped to you. Those fees will be your responsibility. I enclose in the package an invoice which matches the item value posted on the customs form.******

It's a nice piece, however the pictures made it appear bigger that it is and it's difficult, very difficult, to reclose.

Beautiful craftsmanship, excellent fit and fantastic service. We originally ordered a locking system that did not work for this collar and seller not only contacted us to let us know of our mistake but actually modified the collar to work with the locking system we had intended at no extra charge. Would absolutely purchase from this seller again :)
