Hinged Ear Cuff



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.

My order is a gift—can I include a personal note?

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, include the exact note you would like us to write/include. We will then write the note on a card, and send to you 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.

How many variations of ear cuffs do you offer?

At the moment, we only offer one ear cuff style, which is high-polish, in 14K yellow gold. Hopefully in the near future we will be able to develop and add a few more ear cuff styles! If you have ideas, you are very much welcome to share it with us! We love getting product development feedback from our customers!
