although i may never got there (well at least for quite some time) i think the diamond image used by urself Domedia is abit tacky... sorta looks like snow leopard skin. I wouldnt mind tring to have a go and make it look all sparkley and shinny, more 'preddie' in otherwords

i only noticed it today, is it just a dummy one for the time being?

To get to the point it is crap. I am going to change diamond to ruby for the simple reason a diamond (realistic) is not easy to create as a small icon. It looked good large (600px wide) but scaled down.. not so good. I thought I had more time to get the ruby one done but forgot that dom is just such a gas bag LOL.

what if you did it in max?

you could have blue, pink and white diamonds just to give a further 3 more ranks

blue is the best i think. Isnt there a famous blue diamond? Star of india or somethin

correct dj, King Louis XIV of France in 1668 bough it.... (errh i am bored at the moment, i didnt kno that off the top of my head)
I like the idea of 3 levels (or rankings if you will) of diamond grade. Mine top3 would be:
3. white
2. pink
1. blue

1a. GOLD and DIAMOND fused together muwhohahaha |':'|

Naa diamonds suck as a small icon.. really suck so ruby it is going to be.
Unless someone tells me otherwise or a better option.

Ok dom.. make a lier out of me LOL.
I will use them then to create some new icons and add the new ranks.
But I will colour them.

Actually I think I will redo all the rank icons for better looking ones.
