If your idea of spoiling your dog consists of allowing him/her on the furniture or feeding him canned dog food, you probably shouldn't continue reading this post or you may very well get sick as a ...well, you know.
However, if your dog sleeps in a Gucci dogbed or has a Danny (dog nanny), takes Doga (doggie yoga) or eats only free range chicken and sirloin, you may not be shocked that the people who can afford to, may spend upwards of millions of dollars to adorn their pooch with real diamonds, sapphires and bejeweled gold collars.
La Collection de Bijoux is a stunning line of diamond dog collars that showcases over 100 carats of sparkling diamonds and exquisite jewels. These breathtaking, limited-edition collars are in a class of their own, and are most certainly the first of their kind.
Dubbed "the Bugatti of dog collars" by Forbes Senior Editor Matt Miller, this 52-carat diamond dog collar is truly the "World’s Most Expensive."
The Amour, Amour:
Over 1,600 hand-set diamonds adorn Amour, Amour's chandelier design that features a stunning 7-carat, D-IF, brilliant-shaped centerpiece.

Exotic crocodile leather provides comfort and durability for the pampered pooch with the privilege to wear this exclusive collar. Price =$3,200,000
The Amour de la Mer:
The love between people and their dogs is deeper than any ocean. With a sapphire pendant as blue and sparkling as the sea, Amour de la Mer ("love of the sea") symbolizes the depth of this bond.
