Wall Street Paper Clip Chain Necklace
Our signature chain: featuring high-polish flat-edged paper clip links to give off modern minimalist vibes, yet chunky enough for maximal impact. This is a "foundation" necklace, meaning it has no closure—you will need to pair it with one of RIVA New York’s signature Invisible Clasps. Personalize it further with a RIVA New York Letter Charm or Gemstone Charm from the Expression Collection! Comes in Gold Vermeil, Sterling Silver and 14K Yellow Gold, in five (5) different lengths.
At the moment, Wall Street necklaces 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!)

Please take note that this is an open or “foundation” chain, which means that if you purchase it as is it won’t come with a closure—you will need to pair it with one of our signature Invisible Clasps in order to complete your piece. After adding this item to your Cart, you must continue shopping and navigate to our page of Invisible Clasps to select a clasp. Another option is to use our Build Your Own Chain Necklace page so it’s easy for you to mix-and-match in one place! (If you already own an Invisible Clasp, then you may purchase this standalone item.)
Wall Street Paper Clip Chain Necklace
What is a foundation chain?
We call this a foundation chain (we sometimes refer to it as a base chain in other areas of our Website) because it is the foundation of a RIVA New York Expression Collection necklace. You get to choose an Invisible Clasp for it, and then you get to add a charm (optional)—so you end up with a piece that is uniquely you! A foundation chain does not have a closure, as you can see in some of the photos here. That is simply because the Invisible Clasp that you select to go with it will serve as its closure. To make it easy for you, we have created a Build Your Own Chain Necklace page so you do not have to jump back and fort between our Shop pages and your Cart as you build your custom piece—and it’s super fun, so you should try it!
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.
What is gold vermeil?
Gold vermeil is a type of high-end gold plating. Gold vermeil is more hypoallergenic because it uses a thicker layer of gold (at least 2.5 microns thick) compared to regular gold plating. Gold vermeil is a more affordable alternative to solid gold pieces.
