14k Solid Gold Giraffe Pendant
Giraffes are unique among all animals, but they do have one distant cousin. Did you know that the African Okapi is the nearest relative of the giraffe? If you're not sure what they look like, you should look one up. I am an absolute addict for animal facts like that! It is just this kind of behavior that lead me to make a living crafting 14k wildlife pendants!
When giraffes are 5 years old, they are ready to breed. However, if the foliage isn't plentiful at the time she reaches this age, mating will be delayed so the fetus will be well nourished and develop into a healthy young calf. The pregnancy lasts 15 months. There's usually a break of about 20 months in between babies. Since giraffes have a lifespan of around 25 years, it's possible she may have more than a dozen calves during that time. Although the bulls are mature at around 4 years, they don't mate successfully until about age 8.
And now here's how to make a really lovely gold jewelry set of giraffes. Take one14k gold giraffe pin or pendant, add a pair of gold giraffe earrings and Voila! You've got a perfect matched set!
But on its own this 14k gold pendant is a real beauty that you could be proud to give to any animal (or giraffe, specifically) lover.
