nelliemade :  I love black tack in the western pleauew…not so much in the hunters. I am used to it in Dressage, but since I spent so much time in the hunters in the 70’s and 80’s, the black seems so wrong – lol. That stuff does not come of your hands easily! Iodine is the other thing that I seem to always have on my hands.

This thread has veered was away off topic. As far as the diamond goes, if the question is what I think of the diamond for your ring, I say pass. You already have a much  better quality diamond in your setting.

Nope I’m going to say that’s gross.

ponyrider :  this was a driving hitch, which is supposed to be black… I would never dye a light colored saddle black/chocolate, I’d leave that up to a pro – but hitching straps, that I can handle!


People were always commenting on how nice my tack looks, and I’m like, hard work and elbow grease – and care! I’m surprised at the people who have even $3000+ saddles who have never even blown the dust out of their skirts, let alone taken the 10+ hours it can take to remodel a completely disgusting saddle. Even my saddles, which are kept in immaculate condition can take up to 5! But hey, I’ll take all the tack I can get this year, I’ve got a shindig to pay for!

i love diamonds with character, and i like this one. i think inclusions give diamonds life and remind you that they are naturally occuring materials!

Heather Barnes :  yikes! Wear gloves when handling Furazone! That stuff is stamped all over as Toxic – that stuff is so sketchy. There are much better products on the market now anyway. I don’t know anyone who still uses It for anything. But that is neither here nor there. 

Is that diamond marketed as salt and pepper? I’m not a fan of all the inclusions. It would drive me completely crazy. I never understood the boom of salt and pepper, but to each his own.
