Who Wore the Risqué Choker?

On Monday we presented you with this woman’s choker necklace, worn by a female journalist at The Atlantic pre-inaugural party Sunday night at Publisher David Bradley‘s house. We asked for guesses on who it was, and this is what you told us:

The Atlantic‘s Scott Stossel wrote into FishbowlDC, saying, “That’s easy, I’d recognize that neck anywhere: Charles Krauthammer. I’d always pegged him for a big 50 Shades fan.”

Other guesses: Reader Vicky Shannon writes in, “My guess for the choker-wearer is Barbara Harrison.” Former White House Press Secretary Dee Dee Myers and AOL-HuffPost’s Arianna Huffington were among the other guesses.

Indeed, the correct guess is one that no one offered. It’s Washingtonian Editor-at-Large Carol Joynt (as pictured above). She says this piece of jewelry is among her favorites, but rarely wears it. She explained, “Bought it about 5 years ago at Hermes boutique in Florida as a Christmas present to myself. I’m aware women aren’t supposed to buy jewelry for themselves, but that’s like waiting for a man to open the door. By the way, there’s a heart on the lock. It’s sweet.”
