A dog is man’s best friend, right? A cat is…well, I like cats (mine, anyway). Yes, the world is a better place thanks to our pets. They fill our homes with warmth (and fur); they make us smile. My cat thinks his sole purpose is to serve as my alarm clock, but I wouldn’t trade him for anything nonetheless. Many members of this industry appear to feel the same way about their furry friends, and they often share that love on Instagram. From a jeweler’s little helper to the perfect diamond model, here are some of my favorite shots from Instagram of the industry and its pets.
