This is stylish: Equinite
Equinite makes jewelry with "equinite" inlays. What is "equinite" you ask? It's a magical gem that was discovered deep within the diamond mines of central Africa. It has been a prized gem for centuries....
It's horse hoof clippings. The kind you usually sweep up along with the stinky apples your horse leaves after the farrier.
But who knew they could be so gorgeous?
This particular example shown is the hoof clippings plus a few pieces of tail hair from the same horse. Very much on the pricey side, with almost all items in the hundreds (I did find this sterling silver pendant for only $39, though) and that also includes $50 for hoof clipping processing, plus another $20 if you want tail hairs added, BUT if you're looking something really special to commemorate your horse, I don't know if it could get any more special than this.
They have all kinds of items, including money and tie clips, cuff links, charms, bracelets, pendants, necklaces, earrings: the whole bejeweled shi-bang.
EDIT: at the back of Horse Illustrated in their "Blue Ribbon Deals" section they usually have a %10 coupon for Equinite products!
