How do I take care of the gemstones in my RIVA New York piece?
A simple but effective way to clean your gemstone jewelry or the gemstones in your jewelry is by using lukewarm water with a few drops of dish detergent. You may use a soft brush (and old toothbrush, for example) to scrub gently, especially behind the stone where dust and dirt can collect, and once you’re done scrubbing you just rinse in it lukewarm water and then pat dry with a soft cloth. (Please be mindful of the metals used in your piece; see sections above to read up on instructions and contraindications for cleaning 14K gold, sterling silver and gold vermeil jewelry.) If your piece does not require a deep clean, and you just need to, say, dust it, we recommend using a small handheld air blower (e.g., the ones that photographers use to clean their lenses). It is best to take off your gemstone jewelry when taking a shower, swimming, and especially when cleaning, washing dishes, etc.
I am purchasing this item as a gift. Is there a way for me to include a personal note with the shipment?
By all means! Please reach out to us within 48 hours of placing the order to request for a personal note to be included in your order. Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, include the exact note you would like us to write/include. We will then write the note on a card, and send to you (PDF or photo) for approval. 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.
Is the pendant detachable, and can I use it on another chain?
While we offer standalone gemstone charms that can be attached to any chain you already own (provided that your chain and chain ends can be threaded through the bale), for this particular necklace style the pendant is fixed and cannot be detached.

Easy Does It
A Stone's Throw Away from Fully Responsible
When we soft-launched in 2020, we only had a few key items in our catalog, including pendants and charms that featured dainty little gemstones. Many of you loved them! But when we took a step back to reassess our offerings, we discovered that the gemstones we used were not as traceable as we hope they would be. Unlike our recycled gold and recycled silver, which come with extensive paperwork to validate the veracity of their origins, the gemstones did not come with sufficient substantiations, and so we shelved them. Fast forward to two years later, as we were working on new designs, we found that we had a number of these pre-cut gemstones that were now just dead stock. The thought of leaving them there in perpetuity seemed wasteful, so we decided to make a limited number of gemstone necklaces out of them. Because being responsible doesn't mean cutting things off with a butcher knife at the sight of the littlest flaw. It means using a scalpel, to slowly but surely work through the layers, with surgeon-level precision, until your vision is fully realized. Rest assured we are working very closely with our purchasing team from here on out so that our next batch of gemstone necklaces will be made of stones of unquestionable provenance! We're getting there! Just a stone's throw away!
