A rare piece for our unrestrained consumerism files
The Amour Amourdog collar from Love Dogs Diamonds may be the most extravagant dog collar ever made. The one-of-a-kind, platinum, white gold and crocodile collar is studded with 52-carats of diamonds. Reportedly going for a cool $1.8 million, the collar features 1600 hand-set diamonds of up to seven carats in size.
If this one’s just a wee bit rich for your budget, the company also offers a group of more affordable dog-collars including the Juene Cheri, Amour de la Mer and – my favorite – the refined, masculine L’Etoile which go for prices ranging from $280,000 to $480,000.
Each collar is custom-made, fitted specifically to your dog — and the firm will tailor each design to your specific tastes.
