The practice of altering one’s natural appearance to be beautiful or appear more beautiful is a practice as old as time.

These neck rings are gold and brass coils worn around the neck of women.

It is worn to have longer necks. This seems relatively simple, right? Societal standards of beauty for those people might have been having a long neck.

There are also other reasons why they wear it.

Just as a wedding ring signifies a commitment to the marriage in modern cultures. Women were not supposed to take it off until their husbands die.

Conversely, some have postulated that it was worn because it was less attractive to the men of the other tribes so they will not invade their communities and steal their women.

As a status symbol, that shows wealth and prestige.

I know you are wondering if it hurts? Of course, it causes chaffing and makes the flesh around weaker but as it is commonly said beauty is pain.
