    I am a new jewelry designer who launched my collection a couple of months ago. My inspiration came when I got a dachshund named “Ellie”. She changed my life and so I began my search for fine jewelry with a dog theme still fashionable and edgy and I couldn’t find anything… hence I created Diamond Dog New York. My jewelry collection is set in solid 18k with hand-set Pave’ Diamonds, Sapphires and Onyx. Made in New York.

    Thanks and have a great day.

    Best,

    Поэтому я скажу просто
