Academy Award season has come and gone, but it’s always the season to glam up your life. Even if it’s to huddle up at home with your closest friends to enjoy the enchanting entertainment of post-Oscar movies on TV, why not wear your party dress? Or don your most expensive jewelry with your flannel pajamas? Of course your favorite furry friend wouldn’t want to miss out on all the dress-up merriment.
What could be more decadent than diamond dog tags? If you shop at Tiffany, Cartier or Harry Winston, you’ll love The Pet’s Jeweler (www.ThePetsJeweler.com). This jeweler to Hollywood’s elite and their four-legged friends offer one-of-a-kind trinkets. All designs are solid 14 carat gold with handset diamonds.

This chic Canadian store hand-makes the jewelry for your pretty pet. You can commission matching necklaces for yourself too. Or you could create a pet version of your favorite existing jewelry.
