Pendant Warrior Rhino

Warrior Pendant Rhino. 2017. A life-like carved African Black Rhino head in grey obsidian is set into an 18 Karat white gold base shaped as the African continent and embedded in a Masai tribal warrior shield made of 18 Karat yellow decorated with gold with Sapphires and Rubies. The hoop at the shield is made of 18 Karat rose gold set with Diamonds, and in its form is inspired by Cadeaux Jewelry’s Hamburg collection. The Obsidian carving is by master gemstone cutter Stefan Klein of Idar-Oberstein, Germany.

Every year World Rhino Day is marked on 22nd September by organizations concerned with the preservation of both African and Asian rhino species, and by the public. Poaching of black rhinos caused a decline in numbers to under 3000 animals in 1995. Thanks to conservation efforts numbers are again over 5000. Southern white rhinos which were near extinction are now back to a population of 20000. Numbers of Asian one-horned rhinos are back from near-extinction to 3500. Sumatran and Javan rhinos are critically endangered with remaining numbers in the dozens only.
