Jewel made entirely by hand by the Italian craftsman Gianmarco Fontana. Ring made of 925 Silver, which is part of the "ANIMAL'S HUGS" collection depicting an elephant.
The elephant is the largest land mammal. Descendant of the mammoth, it belongs to the order of the proboscidia. It was once widespread on all continents, except Australia and Antarctica. Today it survives only in Asia and Africa. The African elephant can reach 4 meters in height and 9 tons in weight. The Asian elephant, on the other hand, is about 3 meters tall and can reach up to 5 and a half tons. The large head is dominated by the trunk. Without bones, the proboscis is equipped with powerful muscles and fulfills various functions: it is an organ of exploration thanks to the powerful sense of smell and the nerve endings with which it is equipped. It also serves to grab trunks and branches, to bring food to the mouth and in fights. The fangs can reach over 3 meters in length. The female of the Asian elephant is almost devoid of tusks. The female of the African elephant, on the other hand, is endowed with it like the male. The enormous size and the threat of the long tusks guarantee the elephant protection from predators. Not even lions dare to attack adult elephants. The elephant lives in herds of 5 to 50 individuals and led by an elderly female.
