Latest Additions to The Dog Jewelry Museum

Two "new" manufacturers just added to the Dog Jewelry Museum. First off, Wild Bryde Jewelry necklace of a multitude of dog breeds. Wild Bryde specializes in animal and nature jewelry. Started in 1980 in a garage by Mike Warner and Tracy Holzman, much of their jewelry has a silhouette look, done in light weight metals. The necklace is great fun, featuring breeds from a long-coated Chihuahua to a St. Bernard.

Here's a close up of a couple of the dogs:

Next, the Lang company was in operation from the mid-1940s to about the mid-1970s. Just added to the Museum, is this sweet Spaniel puppy in sterling silver. This piece can be found now and then on websites or Ebay. I expect it is from the 1950s, a time when Cocker Spaniels were especially popular in the US.

Finally, another addition to our growing collection of "real breed" jewelry from Trifari. Here's a gold tone smooth-coated Chihuahua, delightfully detailed. Just when I think I've got all of the dogs in this series, I spot another breed! Check out the other Real Dog Breed pieces in the Trifari section at the Museum.

  1. Beautiful! I had no idea that Wild Bryde made dog jewelry - I have only seen their bird jewelry. The Trifari chihuahua and Lang spaniel are beautiful also.
