Rhinestone Dog Jewelry

Article Author: A Merryvaluation

One of Merry's many nicknames is the “Princess Pug”. If there was one Pug who believed she owned the world, this is she.

Naturally, then, when I told Merry the news that she would be reviewing real rhinestone dog jewelry (created by Jewelry Designer Dorothy Bauer), all the sparklies her little diva heart could handle, she was overjoyed. She checked the mailbox more often than I did.

Dorothy Bauer's jewelry is quite famous, which is why Merry was so excited. Chris Rock wears her designs in the film Head of State, and this year's Miss USA Dog Pageant (which airs on Fox TV this month) will be wearing a custom tiara created by the designer as well.

The first thing we learned when opening the box is that the photos don't do the jewelry any justice. It's tough to photograph jewelry well, but these pieces were just lovely.

Two different necklaces with simple rows of rhinestones were elegant and are guaranteed to work for any occasion. A third necklace featured rhinestone flowers and leaves, and was stunning and summery.

As we moved on to the puppy charms, it got even better. There were small rhinestone bones, an open star charm with tiny pink rhinestones, three different crowns (how perfect, for the little Princess), and a custom bone charm with Merry's name inside. Merry howled with delight. And I was equally pleased with a lovely custom rhinestone photo frame with Merry's name emblazoned across the top!

You can guarantee that she has been wearing either her bone, or a crown charm, nearly every day since. She loves the extra attention she gets when people notice her lovely jewelry.

I wasn't sure what to expect in terms of quality (after all, dog jewelry? could it really be human-grade?) but was blown away by the pieces we received. The jewelry form is constructed and soldered by hand. The rhinestones are Austrian crystal and are prong set. Most of the pieces are available with Fine Silver or 23K Gold plating finishes. And since every piece is handmade, they are unique and original.

In fact, many of Merry's two-legged friends have also expressed a desire to have Dorothy Bauer originals themselves! Luckily, this is possible for anyone - Dorothy also designs jewelry for two-legged Princesses as well. :)
