Martha Stewart’s two French bulldogs have diamond necklaces/collars, ugh

I’m generally not an “eat the rich” kind of person. I can’t stand conspicuous consumption from rich, out-of-touch celebrities, but for the most part, I do feel like “eh, what did people expect.” For Martha Stewart specifically, I think she’s earned her good life. She built a good brand from scratch and she lives that elite WASP life. Martha also has a huge assortment of animals on her many properties. I knew about her Chow Chows, but I did not know that she also has French bulldogs. She was on her social media the other day, and two of her French bulldogs were on camera with her. Those dogs were wearing sparkly, bejeweled collars. Someone asked Martha where she got them. Her answer pissed me off!

Martha Stewart sure likes to pamper her pups. The domestic doyenne, 79, took to Instagram Tuesday to share some precious photos of her pooches enjoying her brand’s new CBD dog treats — but one fan couldn’t help but ask about the blinged-out collars on her French bulldogs, Crème Brûlée and Bête Noire.

“Where did those beautiful jeweled collars for the girls come from?,” the follower inquired.

“Van Cleef or Cartier I cannot remember!!,” Stewart replied.

While neither fine jewelry brand currently sells designated dog collars, similar diamond necklaces from the two companies will easily set you back tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Stewart isn’t the only one dressing up her pups. Both Ariana Grande and Priyanka Chopra have decked out their dogs in Tiffany & Co.’s blue leather collar ($275), and the latter even travels with her Chihuahua in a $2,000 Goyard tote.

Martha Stewart literally went to a jeweler – either Van Cleef & Arpels or Cartier!! – and had them make diamond dog collars for her French bulldogs. IN THIS ECONOMY!! I cannot. I love jewelry too and I think it’s fine to invest your money in great jewelry pieces, especially if you’re going to get a lot of use out of them. But Martha Stewart buying diamond necklaces for her French bulldogs has taken me over the edge.

    I bet she is joking. Those do not look like real diamonds to me.

    • Va Va Kaboom says:

      I immediately thought the same thing. Honestly, I wouldn’t be shocked if she wasn’t joking. But the actual exchange between the two makes me think she was being sassy.

    • Chaine says:

      I thought she was joking, too. Surprised that anyone is taking it seriously.

    • Yup, Me says:

      I had the same thought, as well.

      But if they were real diamonds, I don’t think I’d care. We don’t know when she got the collars or under what circumstances. My dogs both have cut crystal water dishes. They look ultra fancy. I got them at the thrift store.

      I’m all for ‘eat the rich’ as a general principle, though.

      • olliesmom says:

        My little girl cat eats her dry food from a fine china dish with pink rose buds and a gold rim around the outside. It was from a set that I inherited from my mom. I know that my mom does not mind at all that I’m feeding my cat on a piece of her fine china because she would love my cat.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      Exactly. I think she was bing flippant.

  2. Nev says:

    I love it. SHE GANGSTA.

  3. Ann says:

    Do we know when she bought them? It might have been pre-Pandemic. Honestly, I don’t care. I think it’s ridiculous and I wouldn’t do it no matter how much money I had, but whatever. It doesn’t hurt the economy to buy jewelry.

  4. Astrid says:

    She has paid her dues, did the time and come out the other end and is still a source to be reckoned with as life style guru. If she wants diamonds for her dogs, so be it.

  5. Agirlandherdog says:

    I think there’s a lot we don’t know, so I’m not going to get worked up over it. Her comment makes it sound like they’re things she’s had for a while, and she can’t remember where they came from. She also doesn’t actually say they’re dog collars. Maybe they’re hers, and she’s had them for decades and thought, “f*** it, it’s a pandemic. Snoop can’t come over for a party, so I’m going to dress up the girls in my old diamond chokers and have a cocktail party.”

    • Vavavoom says:

      Yes, I hadn’t thought of this. Those dogs have YUGE necks so they could be human necklaces for sure.

  6. Vavavoom says:

    I dunno, I’m with the ‘what would we expect’ thought process here. And from what I’ve seen, so many of these items are actually gifted to the celebrities by the companies. And if she did buy them, well what else is she going to spend her money on? LOL

  7. MinxyMeow says:

    Personally, I think it’s just more humorous. I get it, we are all going through bad things with this pandemic and it’s a blatant display of wealth. But it also doesn’t make her any less rich by buying her dogs over priced baubles.

    If I had the free cash, I’d probably put my pampered cat in a shiny collar I spent too much on. He’d kick my booty for even trying but I like sparkly crap.

  8. Tiffany says:

    I really think she was being tongue in cheek with the comment. For all of the WASP ness with Martha, I don’ t think she would go out of her way to be this tone deaf.

    • original_kellybean says:

      Sorry, I didn’t read your comment until after I posted mine. I was just so annoyed that people took this seriously and had to post as soon as I read it, before reading any other comment.

    I don’t care if the rich spend their $ on the frivolous. There $ and if it doesn’t hurt anyone. Obviously it would be nice if they donated it but I don’t know if they are generous donors to worthwhile organizations. Also I think it’s the equivalent in my income bracket of splurging on $200 light saber for my kid and donate that much to charity (to ease my mom guilt).

    • Larisa says:

      Yes, but it’s a false equivalency. What needs to be compared is not the splurge but the disposable income. Poorer people usually save and sacrifice to splurge, or do it rarely. The rich splurge all the time without sacrificing anything. Just because you did it once too does not make it the same.

  10. Mac says:

    On another note, Martha looks great for someone who is 79.

  11. original_kellybean says:

    I think she was being tongue-in-cheek. They aren’t real diamond collars. ffs.

  12. Bri W. says:

    I don’t think those are real diamonds?

  13. CariBean says:

    I’ve got no issues with it. She earned that money, it’s her prerogative to spend it however she wants.

  14. GuestwithCat says:

    The bling looks better on the dogs than they do on most rich people I’ve seen anyway. But I don’t think those are real jewelry.

    How does she look so good? I know she’s had work done but is she seeing a surgeon or a sorcerer? Damn girl! She looks 50, not 82.

  15. Jbritt925 says:

    Y’all are really hurting for stories today…

  16. SarahCS says:

    I’m really not convinced those are real, sure she could afford them but that’s not the vibe I’m getting from her answer!

  17. olliesmom says:

    Martha and Snoop Dog are going to be hosting the Puppy Bowl this year. And they will have their dogs there. Martha will be bringing all four of her dogs and Snoop will be bringing his two dogs (he has two French Bulldogs also).

  18. Samanthalous says:

    Leave gansta Martha alone!

  19. WTF says:

    The issue here is income inequality, not whether Martha has the right to spend her money how she chooses. The wealth gap in the us is higher than any other developed nation. If you buy into the myth that the rich are rich because they “earned” it, and not because of government policy and manipulation, then it doesn’t matter. But it is a myth. Martha made a lot of money on her brand, but large scale investment, low tax rates, tax loopholes that have her paying a smaller percentage of her income than a teacher pays, sweatshops, exported and exploited labor are the real reasons that she’s so rich. until “regular” people get pissed off about it, nothing will change.

    I’m with you Kaiser, these necklaces piss me off. They’re a symptom, not the problem, but still.

    • Samanthalous says:

      She married well and started her own catering company, Martha has been in the business for over 40 years, and went to prison while her male counterparts did no time but kindly sold her out. I subscribe to her magazine, I applaud her and her constant reinventing of bee businesses for herself. I dress my dog in Burberry AND WHAT! Go to your political parties and complain about income equality.

  20. Likeyoucare says:

    Her money, she didnt stole it from anyone and she didnt live on tax payer money.
    She doesnt have to pretend to be an average human being.

  21. jwoolman says:

    The only way to waste money is to burn it. Otherwise, every penny spent for goods and services makes its way into somebody’s rent or mortgage, education, food, etc.

    But I doubt she would really put diamond collars on her dogs except for a lark, and these could easily be her own necklaces or just fake diamonds. Bling on pets just makes them targets for thieves.

    But the white dog needs something with color on the collar. Too hard to see diamonds. Try rubies or emeralds next time, Martha. The black dog looks fine, the black fur sets off diamonds nicely.

  22. LillyfromLillooet says:

    Martha looks great, and the dog bling makes sense to me. Over the decades she’s been in business, it’s become pretty plain that she is mean, controlling, and spending time with her is sort of a trial. For years now, her portions of MSW are about gardening and weekends with friends who turn out to be hired help. When I last clicked on the portion of her blog that says “family and friends” there are no pictures of people.

    It makes so much sense to me that her pets would become her emotional touchstones and of course she’d give them the best.
