• The Rhino Love Project

    The Maria Callas Monaco Gala & Awards is more than a festive event.

    The RHINOLOVE project

    Responding to H.S.H. Princess Charlene of Monaco call for supporting the salvation of the African rhinoceros, we decided to make our response through Art. The Maria Callas Monaco Gala & Awards organization is joining forces with the Apergi brand by means of creating a beautiful piece of jewellery in various forms, depicting the whole of the rhino for the first time. Jewellery depicting horns are not to be worn anymore, as they are a reminder of what has been taking place in Africa: the poaching and the horrendous dehorning of the rhinos is a vulgar human act that destroys the beauty of the world and leads to the extinction of this unique prehistoric animal. It is our duty to our planet and to ourselves to participate by supporting this noble cause. For this reason the net profit from the sales will be delivered to the Chasing Zero organization of the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation South Africa for its purposes.

    We regard the chasing and dehorning of the rhinos as a tempest of malice in this world, that now is about to come to an end; and each
    end of every tempest leads to a rainbow of peace and beauty, thus for our little enamel rhinolove, we chose the seven colours
    of the rainbow.

    We hope you share our enthusiasm and embrace this adorable rhino, thus contributing to the salvation of the unique African rhinoceros.

  • The Hercules Monoikos Project

    It is a great honour to join forces with the Princess Charlene Foundation Monaco which supports and funds educational programmes preventing children from drowning and protecting them from injury. In our project, through the Maria Callas Monaco Gala & Awards Organization and its President loanna Efthimiou and jewellery designer Xaris Apergi, we have created a bridge between Greece and the Principality of Monaco, by means of art.

    Our inspiration for this project has been the personality of Hercules Monoikos, the ancient Greek hero to whom the name of the Principality of Monaco is attributed, as well as its port, which is named Port d’ Hercule, ofter the hero. In Greek mythology, Hercules represents the power of Good, fearlessness, invincible spirit, faithfulness to friendship and hospitality. We chose the Hercules’ club, as an emblem of human force, for a jewellery collection that will emit positive energy to do good for the people.

    Technical information: the Hercules Monoikos collection is made of Silver 925° & Gold 750° (Kl8). The earrings and pendant are adorned with small pearls for extra shine and contrast of surface texture.
