    • Prefer the luxe look of polished metal for your pet collar buckle? Upgrade any pet collar style in our shop with either a silver or gold-toned metal buckle. Just add this upgrade item to your cart along with any pet collar you want to order.
    • Available in: SILVER or GOLD (all other hardware on collar will be made to match).
    • Our metal buckles are NON-BREAKAWAY only and not available for quick release safety 'breakaway' collars. This type of buckle is best suited for dogs (can be used with a leash) or for cats who do not need a breakaway collar. Ordering this upgrade is considered a custom item and is not valid for returns or exchanges.
    • This upgrade is for one metal buckle. Please add as many upgrades to your cart as you need, to match the number of collars you would like to upgrade in your order.
    • Our metal buckles are NOT engraveable. If you wish to personalize your collar, please do so by purchasing an ID tag instead. We cannot personalize the buckle clasp itself.
    • Note: Metal buckles are naturally heavier than our standard black plastic buckles. Each metal buckle weighs 0.51 oz (which feels similar to the weight of about 2 stacked U.S. quarters / coins). Metal buckles are not recommended for kittens or delicate mini-sized dogs. Pets that are 8 lbs and up generally should be fine with these buckle clasps.

Sizing & Hardware Options

Standard Collar Sizes (listed in inches)

The numbers listed below represent the shortest & longest adjustable length range for the neck size options we offer. We strongly recommend measuring your pet's neck before ordering, if this is your first time. Tip: A simple piece of string or ribbon (or equivalent flexible household item) can be used to assess the collar length your pet needs -- then measure the amount of string you used, laid out flat alongside a straight ruler. Often, customers may not realize their pet is smaller (or larger) than average prior to measuring!

If your pet is in-between sizes, select the closest size from the dropdown menu, but be sure to provide your pet's exact neck size measurements in the "Special Instructions" message box (on the Cart page before checkout) so that our seamstresses can make any necessary custom sizing adjustments to ensure an optimal fit for your pet. We'll take care of it as long as you give us the measurements! :-)

Kitten 6-10" (inches) Fits small cats
Adult Cat 8-13" (inches) Fits average-sized & larger cats
XL Cat 12-16" (inches) Fits extra large, big cats
Tiny Dog 6-10" (inches) Fits very small pups (measure to be sure)
Mini Dog 8-13" (inches) Fits Chihuahuas, Yorkies, toy breeds
Small Dog 12-16" (inches) Fits Beagles, Jack Russell Terriers, Pugs

A Note About Adding Custom Slide Tags to Collars: If ordering a personalized slide tag name plate to be put on your collar, the length of the tag will reduce the maximum length of the collar by 1.5 inches. If your pet's neck size is very close to the maximum of a certain size range and you plan to get a slide tag with the collar - to avoid any fit issues, we recommend ordering the next size up, or adding a note in the "Order Notes" box (located on the Cart page before checkout) to let us know your pet's exact neck size so our studio can make any necessary adjustments as needed.


Collar Terminology & Options

"Size" refers to the collar's adjustable length (in inches).Note: The standard width of the collar will remain the same - either 3/8" or 1/2", regardless of the size/length you select.  (The width can be found in the product description for any specific collar style you are considering).

"Buckle Type" refers to the black or white standard plastic side-release clasp shown in all collar product photos in our store. On every collar product page, you will be given the option to select whether you prefer a "Breakaway" or "Non-Breakaway" plastic buckle clasp. Both types look the same as what you see in the photos — the difference has to do with the internal pronged mechanism, which makes them function differently. See the illustration below to compare the visual differences. Please Note: The details regarding the differences shown below will apply whether it's pertaining to a white or black buckle clasp:

The functional differences are as follows:

"Hardware" accent color refers to the various standard metal components that are part of the pet collar— i.e. the collar length adjuster, the round split ring for cat collars (or D-ring for dog collars), and the included removable bell. Note: The hardware color choices do NOT apply to the plastic buckle clasp - the buckle will always be plastic (unless you specifically order a metal buckle upgrade to go with your collar).
