I love beautiful gold jewelry that doesn’t take itself  seriously. And of course, the theme must absolutely involve animals! ( at least when it comes to me) I don’t remember the last time I bought a piece of jewelry that had absolutely nothing to do with pets or endangered animals. If you have never been to this site, I would like to gently encourage you; the work here is like no where else. Or as I tell my best friend, it really is magic. (The site is called The Magic Zoo, by the way.)

The expression on the little face of the fluffy gold cat is priceless. He looks like he might’ve left a dead mouse in one of your Birkenstocks. Have you ever experienced this sort of gift from your feline? If not, you just haven’t lived.

It’s too bad my brother doesn’t wear jewelry. Since he was 10 years old he’s had a pet lizard of one kind or another. He’d have absolutely no way to wear this unique bearded dragon pendant in gold , but it still makes me think of him and his lizard love. I’ll bet he’d still like to see it, and maybe he’d get one for his wife! (Yes, she likes herps, too.)

Of course gold is expensive, (in fact, it’s now completely out of my price range) but I can still dream. I love to purchase things like that for the people I love. Receiving something in 14K gold really makes you feel like there’s a lot of love going around. I’m a real saver, so when I have a lump of money, I’ll spend it all in one place, usually for a gift. How long do you think you’d hold onto a piece of gold jewelry? Forever, right? I’m sure of it. So that’s what I like to save towards.

Since my mother collected trinkets, I think I must have “inherited” that form of entertainment. And even if I don’t wear that much jewelry, I love to look at it. I have a collection of colorful ethnic earrings, pendants, pins and charms from all around the world. In fact, some of my favorites are little things made by craftswomen in small African or South American villages.

So all that glitters isn’t gold!

And when it’s a piece of jewelry that represents your favorite pet, it doesn’t get much better than that! Who would ever give away a genuine, precious metal necklace that looked exactly like their favorite dog, cat or animal? That’s just crazy.

I love to dream, and like I said, I might not be able to afford any gold jewelry for myself or anyone else right now, but I know my ship will come in someday. Meanwhile, I’ll window shop online, and I encourage you to do the same!
