When riding, equestrians don’t often make bold statements with jewelry, but that doesn’t mean we don’t like it. I find a simple necklace is a fantastic way to make a statement without compromising functionality and the conservative nature of show and barn apparel.
I have found that simple, elegant designs like the ones I seek are often hard to come by. That was, until I found Carrie Cramer Fine Jewelry. Carrie’s designs are perfect equestrians. Like many of us, Carrie is a dog lover. She’s brought her passion for these wonderful four legged friends into her designs. When asked about why she chose to do this dog and animal themed line Carrie’s answer was simple, “Dogs have that power to make everyone around them radiate, and that’s exactly what I hope my debut line of necklaces will do—make women shine.”
Each design is simple and timeless with a silhouette that beautifully reflects the animals we love. Every piece is made to order with various size and metal options to allow you to choose something that best fits your style and personality. She offers many different dog breed silhouettes, making it easy to find a design that represents your favorite furry friend. There is also a beautiful horse design, as well as a cat, and a handful of other fun shapes to choose from.
Two of my favorites are her corgi, titled Beau, in a stunning rose gold and her Labrador, called Fonzi, in sterling silver. If you are a traditional gold lover,, fear not! She has beautiful options in those metals as well.
The corgi necklace in white gold is simple beautiful. The diamond collar gives it a touch of class and sophistication, that, as a corgi owner, I appreciate. I don’t know about others’ corgis, but I am pretty confident that mine thinks he is royalty! This necklace is perfect for a night out, while still keeping my furry loved ones close to my heart.
The Labrador necklace design is smaller and simpler, making it perfect for everyday wear. It also adds a simple elegant sparkle to any outfit for a night out. I’m not sure Carrie knew how perfectly these two designs would fit my dogs, but they just do. My lab cross is sweet, quiet and down to earth, just like this smaller pendant.
Both necklaces have two options on where to clasp, which makes it easy to adjust the length of the necklace for a perfect fit with any outfit. For those looking for additional pieces, all of Carrie’s designs can be made as earrings or bracelets. And, if you have ever want to match your furry best friend, Carrie also offers beautiful ID tags!
