This type of wire is a specifically hardened special kind of wire so that it retains its shape.  It is usually sold in coils and comes in sizes for Necklace (choker), bracelets, and ring sizes.  This allows jewellery to be made from it - most notably bracelets & necklaces - that can be stretched so that it can be worn fittingly & comfortably and yet will return to its original shape when it is removed.
