We stole this headline. We admit it. Its directly from the Press Release. But then, corny as it sounds, it makes its case very well. A rare diamond depicting a dogs head is being sold by Meche – one of the leading sources for luxurious cat and dog themed jewellery.
The 0.88 carat diamond stone has been cut into a dogs head complete with nose and tiny ears. According to Mercedes Franklin, creative officer at Meche, Such fancy diamond cutting techniques as this have nearly disappeared in this age of laser-cut stones. But in our quest to offer a truly exceptional tribute to man’s best friend, we found an American diamond cutter who still hand facets each diamond, creating a virtual sculpture in diamond.
The fancy cut dog-shaped diamond is set in platinum surrounded by 86 micro-set round brilliant diamonds. It also can be worn as a brooch. Price: $16,000.
Money, which represents the prose of life, and is hardly spoken of in parlors without apology, is, in its effects and laws, as beautiful as roses. —
