Have you considered taking up falconry, but been put off by how bland the typical bird hoods are? Fret no more fashionable future falconers, for you can now purchase these incredible falcon hoods from Italian Jewelry house Tiroler Goldschmied.

The hoods, which were first debuted at the Abu Dhabi International Hunting and Equestrian Exhibition, each feature diamonds and other precious stones. The hoods will cost you anywhere from $6,500 to $53,000 depending on how many diamonds are featured and how long the hood took to construct. But then, no one ever said that falcon fashion was cheap.
