- One Charm, Three Ways
Looking for a piece of jewelry that will literally reflect your mood? Look no further than this cute little charm! One side features a smiley face, while the flipside carries a sad face—and it suspends from our signature swivel bale, so it’s easy for you to flip from one side to the other. You may use it as a pendant or bracelet charm (simply slide it into the RIVA New York Invisible Clasp that attaches to your Wall Street, Cobble, Luna, or Cobble necklace/bracelet), or as an earring drop (attach it to your RIVA Classic, Midi or Baby Hoop earring). Available in sterling silver, gold vermeil and 14K yellow gold. From RIVA New York’s Expression Collection.
At the moment, our Moody charms are made to order, so please allow up to two (2) weeks before your order is shipped. (But please welcome the surprise if we can get it to you faster than that!)

This particular charm represents a departure from the old-school single-use format. No need to get different charms for different uses! One charm can go a long way! It can pinball from your neck, to your wrist, to your ears! To use as a pendant: slip the charm into the Invisible Clasp that attaches to your Wall Street chain necklace; or your Cobble, Luna, or Sunset bead necklace. To use as a bracelet charm: slide it into the Invisible Clasp that attaches to your Wall Street chain bracelet; or your Cobble, Luna, or Sunset bead bracelet. You can even use them with chain necklaces or bracelets that you already own (i.e., even if they’re not from RIVA New York), provided that your chain and chain ends can be threaded through the charms’ bale! To use as earring dangle: slide into into your RIVA New York Classic, Midi or Baby Hoop earring!
What is recycled gold? Is every 14K gold piece from RIVA New York made of recycled gold?
Recycled gold, sometimes referred to as reclaimed gold, is gold made from old jewelry (or gold bars or coins), and discarded electrical and electronic equipment. The gold is melted down, refined (and re-refined) until all impurities and metals are removed, and the gold goes back to its most pure form. Gold can be recycled with very little to no degradation, and so purchasing/owning jewelry made from recycled gold is a very smart and sustainable approach. Yes, every 14K gold piece from RIVA New York is made of 100% recycled gold. We purchase recycled gold from SCS-certified suppliers; we also recycle gold from old jewelry and jewelry scraps.
I am purchasing this item as a gift. Is there a way for me to include a personal note with the shipment?

If you would like to write the note yourself, we recommend having the order shipped to you first, and then we will include a blank card for you to write your personal note on; you would then be responsible for shipping your gift to the recipient.
How is gold vermeil different from gold plated?
Gold-plated jewelry uses a thin layer of gold, usually 0.5 microns thick; whereas gold vermeil uses gold plating that is at least 2.5 microns thick. Also, not all gold-plated jewelry sterling silver as the base material; gold vermeil jewelry requires a base material of sterling silver.

That’s the Beauty of a Charmed Life
Something in the Way it Moves
This particular charm comes with what we call a swivel bale. We wanted the wearer to be able to “flip” between the two faces–and plus we wanted the charm to be able to adapt to different uses! Thankfully, because of the backing we have from our parent company (who boasts of more than three decades of product development and jewelry innovation), a solution was devised in no time! Our swivel bale is a 360-degree bale that allows you to position your charm in any direction you see fit, so that you can use it as a pendant, a bracelet dangle, or an earring drop! Lane-hopping at its finest! No need to get different charms for different uses! You’re welcome!
