RIVA New York’s charms represent 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 use as a pendant: slip the charm into the Invisible Clasp that attaches to your RIVA Wall Street chain necklace or your RIVA recycled glass bead necklace. To use as a bracelet charm: slide it into the Invisible Clasp that attaches to your RIVA Wall Street chain bracelet or RIVA recycled glass 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!

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.

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.

True Colors Shining Through
An Ode to Enamel
Enamel in jewelry is not a new concept. In fact, it has been around for centuries, ever since artisans from the olden days discovered that it could make for an effective, less expensive alternative for colored semi-precious stones. RIVA New York has an enamel department dedicated to bring pieces to life with their expert techniques and creative eye!
