Jana Reinhardt Jewellery – Passionate about animal welfare, Jana Reinhardt has created several exclusive pieces intended to raise awareness of the plight of orangutans, greyhounds and foxes. When you purchase one of these pieces, a donation will be made to a range of different animal welfare charities, raising much-needed funds.
Jana Reinhardt Jewellery started life back in 2006 when Jana decided it was time to set up her own brand. She had been working for other jewellers as a goldsmith, but really wanted to free her creativity and imagination and make pieces that reflected what she loved and is inspired by.
Her jewellery influenced by the natural world the animal kingdom and the naive art movement is all handmade to order at her studio by the sea in West Sussex.
After a couple of years going, it alone, her husband Ross, who also just so happens to be an expert goldsmith, joined her. Together, they have over 40 years of experience in jewellery making and qualifications in jewellery and silversmithing, so you can be certain any piece you buy from Jana Reinhardt has been handcrafted by an expert.
Being a small husband and wife team, they are passionate about their ‘micromanufacturing’. They don’t use machine manufacture, preferring the old techniques of wax carving and fabrication to create their products. These traditional methods have no negative effect on the environment, making Jana Reinhardt a more sustainable choice for jewellery lovers.
All the jewellery is available in your choice of sterling silver or solid gold, in a range of carats. Jana Reinhardt has made the decision to no longer make and sell gold plated items because of the negative effect this practice has on the environment and our planet. All precious metals used by the brand are from accredited suppliers, based in the UK and Germany, that continually buy back and recycle scrap metal, thus helping to create more environmentally friendly jewellery.
In a charitable initiative, the brand has joined forces with UK charity National Animal Welfare Trust, offering all NAWT supporters a discount of £20 (off any piece of jewellery) and making a donation to the NAWT for every sale the NAWT discount code is applied to.

Jana Reinhardt has also created some special pieces to help raise awareness and support causes close to her heart.
According to the WWF, the destruction of the rainforests means there are only 100,000 Bornean orangutans left. If you love these special creatures as much as Jana, you’ll adore this unique pendant featuring a finely hand-carved miniature monkey charm, swinging from a fine curb chain.
£20 of each sale will be donated to OVAID – a charity that helps these endangered animals by providing veterinary equipment and medicines and sending vets to orangutan rescue groups and centres in Indonesia and Malaysia.
Adorn your ears and make a difference to a dog’s life, £10 from the sale of each pair of these unique greyhound hoop earrings – and our greyhound necklace – will be donated to Galgos del Sol, a charity that rescues and rehomes greyhounds. Galgos are an ancient type of greyhound that is, unfortunately, one of the world’s most abused dog breeds, with tens of thousands killed each year in Spain.
Our gorgeous greyhound earrings and necklace can be made in sterling silver or 18ct yellow gold vermeil and feature a hand-carved pup, captured mid-run. Master goldsmith Jana wanted to show the dogs in a ‘happy’ running pose, rather than in ‘racing’ position, to show her opposition to greyhound racing.
