SUPER=03-San Diego;

but there's one elephant on the market that has a lot more sparkle than the rest.
Neiman Marcus is currently displaying a unique mother and baby elephant pin. It's decorated with more than 630 pink diamonds...making it over 20 carats.
Ten rubies fill in the elephant's eyes.
The diamonds in the pin came from Australia's Argyle Mine, the world's largest producer of pink diamonds. (----------------)
