Dauphine, My Sweet Dauphine

Beautiful, simple, and well-made, the Dauphine Collar has become my favorite collar for my little girl. It's lovely, with its oval ring and interesting buckle, and is functional, with a sturdy but soft leather. There is no way to go wrong with the Dauphine collar; to say the least, it's absolutely perfect.

extremely useful review
When you've written as many reviews as I have about collars, it becomes a bit boring and tedious. What more can a person say about wonderful collars when they've already said it all? (Of course, with bad collars, there's plenty to say about them.) There's a list that I follow for collars when I'm reviewing them, and it goes a little something like this:

-What's the collar made of? Is the material sturdy, and will it last a long time as well as through rough play?
-What sort of buckle does the collar have if it has one?
-Who would be interested in wearing the collar—a more dominant or submissive person? Also, who would be interested in buying it?
-What are the adornments/extra pieces that the collar has?
-And finally, what exactly can it be used for?

To talk about Leatherbeaten's collars is certainly a hassle in and of itself. They're too perfect for me to say anything bad about them (except for if you're someone with nickel-allergies, then you might have a bit of a problem). The Dauphine Collar is stunning, perfect, extraordinary, to say the least. It has an oval-shaped o-ring looped through a piece of folded over leather that's pinned to the collar strap with a rivet, sturdily and beautifully. It has an interesting pin-styled buckle that stays put when it's worn and allows you to drag around your partner (or be dragged around) without it coming undone. It's made of high-quality leather, unmatched in quality and scent by most online retailers that I've bought from. Is there any way to go wrong with getting this collar? No—not at all.

The first time that I laid eyes on this collar was when I received my first Leatherbeaten product, the [32469#pcode-B5P| Diabolo Collar]. It was on the tag attached to the collar, and I absolutely adored it. Though an intergalactic princess was wearing it on the tag, it's surely suitable for anyone, even those who aren't so exotic; in fact, it's good for people who enjoy rougher BDSM as well as those lightly into BDSM—it's also good for those just wanting to wear a lovely collar. It is more feminine and submissive, as the addition of the d-ring makes it compatible for a leash (or two, if you can fit them in). I actually love having this on my little girl—it fits her so perfectly and beautifully; I almost melt seeing her in this little collar.

Now, I know that you don't want to hear it, but I must add the boring part in—the measurements. Since I received the smaller size, it can fit necks sized 10 1/4" to about 16 1/2", a fairly large range, like most of the collars I've received from Leatherbeaten through Eden Fantasys. Each of the holes are placed 1/2" apart from each other, giving you the ability to fit many sizes; I would tighten it to the smaller size if you're in-between those measurements. The leather strap itself is sturdy but movable and does not need to be broken in; it also is 5/8" in width, making it a fairly medium-width collar. Dauphine's metal ring is also medium-sized, with its height at 1 1/2" and its width at 1". It does not move around much when played with and stays put quite well.

The buckle for this collar is certainly interesting, and takes a bit of time to get used to adjusting. It has a spike in the middle that goes through the adjustment holes on the leather strap to keep the collar in place. On the sides of the buckle, the straps slip easily through the buckle's bars. Though it is a bit hard to fit alone, it is much easier if a partner is putting it on you or if you're putting on a partner, rather than having them do it on their own. First, put the buckle on one of the straps and adjust its spike into one of the holes (according to you or your partner's neck size). Make sure that the spike is pointed outwards, away from where it would be placed on the neck. On your partner, wrap it around their neck and slide the free strap under one of the bars, adjusting the collar and placing the spike in a hole on this next strap. Now, take the strap and slide it through the other bar. Your Dauphine collar will now be secure.

    Great review, Sir Smile A pleasure, as always. I just love the oval shaped ring on this collar...so cute. I prefer a bit of a wider collar, personally, but this one is adorable and understated. Very lovely.

    I love the shape of the ring on this collar, too. But like you, my little girl also likes wider collars. Dauphine is really cute though. And thank you very much, Lexical! That's very nice of you.

    I'm sure that it would be, Earthquakepixie. I actually wouldn't have my little girl sleep in this because the leather does shed a bit, but I'm sure that it would be quite comfortable. The leather's very soft and smooth.

    Thank you very much!
