The Perfect Gift For A New Mum

Recently my granddaughter came into the world. It was a very difficult pregnancy and there was a certain bit of heartache through out the last few months. But as I watched her mother put her protective hand over her bump. I know that she was going to be such an awesome mum to baby Zoe.

I wanted to buy her the perfect gift, something that would symbolise the love between a mother and child. Something to show the special bond they will always have. 

I was approached by Jana Reindhart to see if we would like to review the Lioness and cub necklace from their jewellery range. It shows a lioness carrying her cub in her mouth and is designed with such beautiful detail. The necklace symbolises the protection that a mother has for her child and the eternal love and trust that they both share with each other.

The lioness is the primary hunter for her young cub and becomes both hunter and protector to her cub. A bit like a human mum who goes to great lengths to protect her child. The Necklace is £95 in silver but it is also available in most other precious metals too. When you choose your necklace, you just click the menu and it shows the options of different metals to buy the necklace in. The necklace also has intricate details on both sides of it, which I love, because a necklace has a tendency to turn over as you wear it.

The Lioness and Cub necklace is right out of their Out of Africa range at Jana Reinhardt and it is handmade like all of the jewellery they design. You can get the necklace engraved too for a small extra cost. Each necklace comes with a Jana Reindhart tag too. 

The chain is a fine chain, so you don't really notice it as much on the neck and it emphasises the lioness and cub more on your neck. It lays flat on your neck and is very comfortable to wear.

Previously I had received a hummingbird necklace for Kim from Jana Reindhart jewellers It was perfect for her because the hummingbird symbolises joy, love and luck. So it is another fantastic necklace to give to a new mum. Kim had struggled for a while and this necklace meant the world to her. She wears it around her neck as a symbol of love between the two of us

The hummingbird is a rare bird, so it was kind of symbolic to give it to Kim. She is an absolute one in a million daughter. Again the Hummingbird necklace is available in the precious metal of your choice from silver to platinum. You can also choose the length of your chain to suit you. 

A Little Bit Of Background

Jana graduated from the Zeichenakademie, Hanau. It is one of the oldest goldsmith training centers in Europe. She then went on to work for some high end jewellers before deciding to set up her own business with her Partner, Ross. Ross graduated from the famous Sir John Cass University in London where he studied jewellery and silversmithing.

They now have a studio in Worthing, where they work with a small team of skilled goldsmiths and if you put in an order, they will endeavour to get it out to you the next day, if its in stock. 

They have an ethos where they like to add the personal touch to jewellery, and there is no computer imagery used to create the designs. Instead they use old fashioned methods of fabrication and wax carvings. This means that each piece of jewellery is unique for her customers and no two pieces are ever the same, because there are small differences in each of them. This adds to the excitement of receiving a Jana Reinhardt piece of jewellery.
