A seven generation family run business spanning 230 years and a well- respected British brand. As England’s oldest family jeweller, the business adheres to the highest standards of craftsmanship and quality that are its tradition. Their original designs are carefully executed and beautifully delivered. Henry Deakin having visited a game reserve outside Johannesburg was horrified at the plight of the rhino and returned to the UK with a desire to do something to help their cause. It was a lucky stroke of fate that the paths of ZCT and Deakin & Francis crossed and the Ithuba Collection was born.

Ithuba became our first victim of poaching on the 1 April 2015 when his mother was brutally murdered for her horns. Today Ithuba is living a wild and free life in his original game reserve. Ithuba’s story is a special tribute of how the Trust's dedication towards his care and rehabilitation saved his life and allowed him to be released into the wild where he belongs. ZCT continues to rehabilitate orphaned rhinos into the wild at our newly built facility the Zululand Rhino Orphanage. Annabel Pope sketched this portrait of Ithuba as a young orphan at the Rhino Orphanage and numbered prints are available for purchase.
