all you need is love…and a dog*

All you need is love and a dog…and maybe a red chicken…

This is Nigel, my Old English Sheepdog, constant companion and snuggler extroidinaire. And quite possibly the best dog that ever was.

He is the inspiration behind most of our dog inspired jewelry…and we love him so. Like our new Paws Forever Bracelet from our new Fall collection…For those of you that love your dogs as much as I do.

We are proud to announce our new Bridal division which offers organic and unique engagement rings for the bohemian bride. Rough + Luxe Jewelry was born out of creating my own engagement ring and the many requests from customers for heirloom quality diamond & sapphire engagement rings, anniversary band and wedding bands.

You may view our unique, alternative Bridal and Engagement line on our website at Rough Luxe Jewelry.
