Who needs diamonds?
Sparkle all year long with necklaces, cufflinks featuring silhouette of your pet
Diamonds get a lot of credit for being a girl’s best friend, but when it comes to the best bud of them all, dogs, cats and other four-legged creatures are the real jewels. Photographer Kim Hartz and Contre Jour jewelry designer Alyssa Kilpatrick are combining their talents and creating custom pet silhouette necklaces or cufflinks for the pet lovers on your list.
Hartz brings a pet into her photo studio and snaps a profile picture and then hands the image off to Kilpatrick, who designs a laser cut image of the pet.

They also custom design cufflinks in sterling silver ($300), 14k plated gold ($500) and 14k gold ($650). The photo is included in a studio session, or is $50 for just the profile picture.
Kilpatrick’s applies the French phrase “Contre Jour” which means against daylight to the jewelry design and Hartz translates the concept to photography where it means to light a subject from behind to create a silhouette.
