I'm curious about the horse head diamond (never knew it existed, you learn something new everyday). Is it a naturally occurring shape or is it shaped that way? Does it sparkle? It looks awesome!
@Rockdiamond - I'm assuming the rough can't be too far off for them to cut it like a horse head?

It DOES sparkle which is why it's hard to tell it's a horse head in real life bc the light return is like blingy. It looks the most horsey in a static moment like in a 2d picture, if that makes sense. But once you know what you're seeing you SEE it.

That's so cool. Is the sparkle similar to a brilliant cut, step cut, or old mine cut? I'm just curious how they cut it lol. BTW I love your cats! I also have a gray tabby (fat though).

Not as flash as an MRB, but similar to that kind of sparkle as opposed to big bold flashes from steps or old cuts.

Interesting ring PB! You are correct though - once you see it, you SEE it!

Very unique ring - a great addition to your collection!

You got some great pictures! I showed my parents some not-so-good pictures I took of her and my parents were like "what"?

I saw this months ago and thoroughly enjoyed reading the writeup by DBL, what a hilarious piece! I thought, whoever buys this must have a wicked sense of humor, and I was not disappointed. "Pimp", and the explanation for the name... :lol-2: Enjoy your one of a kind horse!

Now I want to know what the write up said!

Y'er floater platter's lookin' good Pinto!! :geek2::mrgreen2:

I've seen horse heads set. Always with awkwardly-shaped prongs in awkwardly-placed nooks... how has no-one thought to just (heh, literally) tack 'em up before? Au naturale. Brilliant.

I still need to see this in person, you better come up with one of those obnoxious race horse names, Sir Lady Buttercup Vodka Sauce Remoulade... Something along those lines
OMG nothing wrong with PIMP!:angryfire:

Fine... Sir Lady-Boy Sister-Mother-Inbred-Pimp

I need one in my life now as a pendant!
