These are not quite your traditional horse profile earrings. They've been rendered in the style of line art, so that they look a little like a paint-by-numbers background before you've paint it in.
In a way it has the effect of making them more decorative than realistic: The horse's head becomes a lacy pattern of curving, tapering lines in smoothly polished sterling silver.
The matching teardrop border adds to the effect: First you see the overall shape with what looks like a free-form decorative pattern inside, then you look again and see the distinctive profile of a horse.
These earrings do justice to that lovable creature in an elegant way.
