Carabiner-Shaped Invisible Clasp
- A RIVA Innovation
One of our bestselling Invisible Clasps to complete a RIVA New York Wall Street chain necklace or bracelet. It could be argued that the carabiner is what inspired the idea of clasps or locks as a modular jewelry item, so we figured: why not pay homage to this sporting goods staple by creating an Invisible Clasp in its image? Featuring a barely-there push-closure for a seamless look. From RIVA New York’s Expression Collection.
At the moment, Invisible Clasps 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!)
- Dimensions: 10.1mm x 18.6mm, with a thickness of approximately 2.50 mm
- The linchpin of modular jewelry
- Use as a closure for your Wall Street chain or your Cobble, Luna or Sunset recycled glass bead necklace or bracelet
- Can also hold charms and other connectors (stack two Invisible Clasps together —why not?)
- Choose from high-polish, textured (snakeskin), enameled
- Made by New Yorkers using ethically sourced and recycled materials, so it’s a piece you can be proud of
Gone are the days when clasps could only be filed under jewelry findings. We have reshaped them, embellished them, gave form to their function—and so now they have become statement pieces all their own. What makes RIVA New York’s Invisible Clasps stand out is their locking mechanism: a barely-there push closure that snaps open and shut ever so smoothly and ever so swifty, not only for a seamless look but also to promote easy assembly of your modular jewelry piece! We patented this functionality, by the way, which adds to the cool factor, don’t you think?
Please take note that this listing is for a standalone Invisible Clasp. You will need to pair it with a RIVA New York foundation or base chain. After adding the Invisible Clasp of your choice to your cart, you must continue shopping and add our Wall Street chain necklace or bracelet (or a our Cobble, Luna or Sunset bead necklace or bracelet) to your cart to complete your piece. You may add a charm, too! Another option is to use our Build Your Own Necklace or Bracelet platforms so it’s easy for you to mix-and-match in one place! (If you already own a foundation or base chain from RIVA New York, then you may purchase your Clasp as a standalone item.)
Carabiner-Shaped Invisible Clasp
Why is it called an Invisible Clasp?
We actually get asked this a lot, especially via Instagram DMs! “Why is it called an Invisible Clasp when we can clearly see it?” Well, we do not mean that the whole piece is invisible, obviously! By “invisible,” we mean the push-closure is incognito or barely-there, so to the untrained eye it will look like a solid link and not a clasp! We hope that clears things up!
Which chains work with these Invisible Clasps?
Our Invisible Clasps work with the foundation paper clip chains in our Expression Collection: namely, the Wall Street Necklace chain and the Wall Street Bracelet chain. Their links (and end links) are sizable enough to act as anchors for the Invisible Clasps. Note that our Cobble, Luna and Sunset bead necklaces/bracelest are also meant to be paired with Invisible Clasps, since they have rings at the ends. If you are planning to use a RIVA New York Invisible Clasp with your own chain, make sure the end links are large enough to fit the clasp.
Can I customize my enamel color for my clasp?
You can choose between the 5 enamel colors that we have available! Unfortunately, we will not be able to offer enamel colors outside of the 5 colors that we offer. At least not at this time!
