Size Varies based on your dog's nose.
Finished weight approximately 6 grams of 14 Karat gold.
Solid 14 Karat Gold Charm - Oxidized & Matte Finished
Dog Nose Pendant in Solid 14K Gold for Small to Medium Sized Dogs
This kit works for any size dog, but if you want the whole nose in a pendant it is ideal for medium sized dogs.
We use the same amount of metal to create this pendant so no matter what size mold you return to us the pendant will be 6 grams of gold. This means smaller noses will be a bit thicker and show the whole nose. For large noses we may only get a part of the nose impression onto the final impression, and it will be a thinner piece. We can shape these into an oval or a heart shape.
Your dog's nose has a very detailed and unique print. Like a fingerprint, no two dog noses are alike and this pendant is an exact impression of your own doggie's nose!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Order this kit and we send you the safe, non-toxic compound that you can use to take an impression of your dog's own nose. Complete instructions come with this kit, and we include enough mold compound to take three impressions of your dog's nose.
It takes only a second or two to take the impression, and the mold compound is safe and mild. Once you take the impression of your dog's nose, you send it back to us and we create a pendant with the exact, detailed impression of your dog's very own nose! We then return the pendant and the mold to you.
The oxidized, blackened finish is ideal for these pieces as they bring out the detail, but we can also do just a soft matte finish, or a polished finish.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
About 4 weeks. The kit leaves our studio in 1-3 business days, and you have the option to choose the shipping speed. You take as long as you need to make it (the kit never expires), then you return the mold to us. Again, shipping speed is up to you.
Once we have the mold in our hands it takes up to 10 business days to make. We then return it to you free, and that final shipping to you takes from 2 - 22 business days depending on your location in the world. Once you complete the mold, return shipping to us is up to you.
WHAT DO I GET?

1. A kit with materials for 3 molds.
2. Free Shipping of the kit to you,
3. Final Shipping of the finished piece.
4. Complete instructions
5. A 6 gram solid 14k gold replica of your dog's own nose.
WHAT CAN I DO WITH THE PENDANT?
You can simply create a lovely keepsake touchstone of your dog, or wear it as a necklace. You may purchase a gold, silver or leather necklace separately, or slide this pendant on an existing chain, it comes with a large jump ring that slides over the end of most chains. We can also add your piece to a stainless steel key chain, a steel coat pin, or create a wood framed keepsake. You can purchase any of these items separately and request that we add your pendant to it. Let us know if you have any special requests.
CAN I GET ANOTHER ONE?
Once we have the impression, we can create as many pieces of your dog nose as you like for an additional fee. We return your mold to you with the finished piece, so if in the future you would like another nose done, you can send us back the mold.
WHAT IF I SCREW UP ALL THREE MOLDS?
Don't worry, if you really mess it up, you can purchase another kit for a set of three more tries. We include photos and instructions of the best way to do the mold, and usually the first one works great! Don't do a practice one, just go for it!
WHAT WILL MINE LOOK LIKE?
The results of the pendant are varied, and depend on the mold. The pendants can be flat or stick out, depending on the shape of your dog's nose. We create the piece from your mold, no matter what the shape, but then we shape the dog nose pendant into an oval shape that best highlights the details of the nose. The pendant is a layer of metal that conforms to the mold, and is around 1-2mm thick. The back of the pendant also varies, but we give it a soft, smooth matte finish.
This dog nose impression pendant makes a great conversation piece. This is also great for aging dogs as it makes meaningful dog memorial jewelry and a unique and treasured keepsake.
