Oscar Nominees to Receive, Among Other Items, Limited Edition of Gothic Dog’s Gold and
Diamond Dog Collar Charm
Los Angeles, CA, February 13, 2008 --(PR.com)-- Distinctive Assets, which distributes the “Everybody
Wins at the Oscarsè” gift bags, announced today that they have selected Gothic Dog's iconic skull and
crossbones dog collar charm to be included in the gift bags for all the non-winning nominees in the five
principal categories. Cast in 14kt yellow gold to capture the spirit of Oscar®, the limited edition charm is
encrusted with pave diamonds in the skull's eyes and has a pear-shaped diamond solitaire for the nose.
The charm is also engraved with a serial number on the base. Known as Bensley's Skull and Crossbones,
the charm is named after a ship's captain and his dog who Gothic Dog's founder, Jennifer Barber, met on
a beach in Mauritius. This version will also be available in a limited number to the public.
Among the most expensive items in the Gift Bag, the limited edition charm retails for more than
$2,000.00. The charm will be presented in a custom-designed box, which is hand-finished, and features a
protective velvet veil on the interior and push-button clasp closure on the exterior. Asked for comment,
Jennifer Barber, beamed: "Gothic Dog is so pleased to be included in this year's Oscar celebration, and
we're confident that the nominees will be delighted when they see their best friends sporting the Bensley's
Skull and Crossbones on their dog collars! There is no doubt that these lucky dogs will echo the class and
distinction of their nominated owners.” Barber noted that the box itself is a keepsake, and added, “some
owners have even been known to wear the charms themselves as pendants. You might see Gothic Dog on
the red carpet!” Like all of Gothic Dog's jewelry designs, Bensley's Skull and Crossbones began as a
drawing by Barber, sketched upon her return from a trip to the islands of the Indian Ocean.
