Reinhold Reiling (1922 – 1983) was among the first goldsmiths who after the War translated the new design vocabulary into jewellery. After his apprenticeship and studies at the Schools of Applied Arts in Dresden and Pforzheim (pupil of Theodor Wende), he became in 1954 first a teacher and in 1969 professor of jewellery design at Staatliche Kunst- und Werkschule Pforzheim (later Pforzheim University of Design).
