Described as cute yet functional, brklz is an e-commerce brand that produces collections of fashionable jewelry for dog owners looking to create a one-of-a-kind collar for their dogs.
Charms come in a variety of forms, including a dog’s initial, personalized name plates, Swarovski pendant charms and icons made with Swarovski crystals. The clips, pendant and jump rings are made of stainless steel, while the charms are brass. Each charm clip is specifically engineered to make it easy to attach and remain securely connected to a collar or harness.
In addition to charms and plates, brklz makes attractive collars and leashes to complete a dog’s trendy look. Made of all-weather, stain-resistant BioThane straps, they’re durable and easy to clean. The collars and leashes feature with zinc die cast hardware that comes with a matte black finish.
In addition, the company also offers the t-Winning set, a trendy initial necklace and dog brkl – so the owner will have a gold-filled necklace with an initial that pairs up with the pup’s letter brkl.
Penny, our fashionista test pug, is always ready to walk the red carpet, so we selected a charm-collar-leash set, which arrived in a tin box that Penny’s owner called “adorable.”
Penny and her owner loved the P brkl, the font of which is described on the brklz site as a “metal love” letter. The letter brkl and clip was the 24K gold-plated model, with the three other available colors being rose gold, black gun metal and matt rhodium. This set included an adorable tiny heart icon, which added to the cute factor.
This “doggie bling that gives her a little edge,” as Penny’s owner calls it, is high quality and has yet to get scratched despite being worn around the clock. The powder blue of the collar and leash against Penny’s dark coat enhances her feminine side, which is a plus as her owner admits that there’s a tendency for people to mistake the pug as a male due to her color. Other colors include pink, baby pink, turquoise and black.
Another positive note on the collar and leash is that they passed the weather-proof test. While many collars and leashes might warp, fray or break after repeated usage in rain or snow, this set has remained in the exact same shape since Day 1. At 39 inches, the leash length is good for small dogs, as it allows for easy control. The larger sized leash for medium and large dogs measures 47 inches in length.
For a petite dog like Penny, brklz are a winner. Penny’s owner wrapped it up with this statement: “You know what they say; give a pug the right jewelry and she can conquer the world!”
