Jewel made entirely by hand by the Italian craftsman Gianmarco Fontana. Ring made of 925 Silver, which is part of the "Animalia" collection depicting the muzzle of a white rhino.

Its color is not white but greyish, and also depends on the mud in which it rolls: the skin is in fact the same color as the black rhino. The name "white" derives from an incorrect translation of the Afrikaans adjective wyd ("wide") which had been attributed by the Afrikaner colonizers to the pachyderm, and in particular to its lips.
On average this species has a head-trunk length of 320-370 cm, a height at the withers of 190-200 cm and a weight of 2900 kg; some males can reach a length of 5 meters and a weight of 3600 or 4000 kg, but these are very rare cases. The anterior horn can be up to 170 cm long. The lips are square in shape, and therefore make him a grazer.
