A neckloce is a necklace for males. It is an article of jewelry that is worn around the neck. Neckloces are frequently formed from a metal jewelry chain, often attached to a pendant. This variety of neckloce is an important part of urban "gangsta" fashion. Another common type of neckloce is a single strand of white shell fragments, popularized by informal surfer culture in coastal regions.
