Two-Tone Wall Street Paper Clip Chain Necklace
- Build Your Own Necklace
Our Wall Street necklace gets a cool upgrade! Sizable geometric flat/square-edged paper clip chain in sterling silver, with half the chain plated in gold vermeil for a standout two-tone look. Most call it ombré; we call it awesome! This is a freestyle or “foundation” chain, 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 five (5) different lengths.
At the moment, two-tone 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.)
Two-Tone 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 forth between our Shop pages and your Cart as you build your custom piece—and it’s super fun, so you should try it!
How do I add a clasp to this chain?
The clasp that you can add to or use with this chain is called the Invisible Clasp. We offer 5 shapes of Invisible Clasps for you to choose from, and each shape comes in different variants: high-polish, textured (for 14K yellow gold Clasps only), and enameled. To add an Invisible Clasp to this chain, simply navigate to the Invisible Clasps category under our Shop page after you had added this chain to your Cart, select the Invisible Clasp of your choice and add that to your Cart! You may also use our Build Your Own Chain Necklace page—it’s super fun! It allows you to virtually try different chain-and-clasp combos to take the guesswork out of building your RIVA New York Expression Collection piece!
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.

The Two-Tone Look is Hot Right Now
Well, it's been hot ever since mixing metals in jewelry design was discovered, and who knows how far back we’re talking? All we know is that mixing yellow gold and white gold in one design has always made for a standout, eye-catching fine jewelry piece… And now we’re bringing that parlance to demi-fine jewelry territory by mixing sterling silver and gold vermeil in one piece! So now you don’t have to choose between one look or the other! Brilliant or what?
