NEW YORK (AP) 3 of 10 pet tags have been made with a diamond, silver or gold plate.
A rare gem-encrusted engraver with a tattoo of the American flag made them for a family of five, including a dog, cat, pig and chicken.
The engravers have been sold at auctions for as much as $7 million and more than $100 million, according to the American Numismatic Association, and some experts say they can fetch as much or more than the value of the items they are used for.
The new jewelry has been created by a group of collectors in New York’s Greenwich Village.
It is not clear how the plates were acquired.
The plates have been displayed at the Greenwich Village museum since last year, and are on display there now, according
