Why RIVA

Blurring the Line Between Engineering and Art

We provide designer-driven manufacturing solutions that are devised, crafted, and forged using the sharpened edge of enduring expertise. With all of our manufacturing components located in-house, our inventive application of time-tested techniques provide our clients, both prospective and active, a sense of inevitable satisfaction.

Our Values

Conservation Minded

Riva has made a commitment to do its part to conserve our natural resources. Water is our most precious resource, so we take care to remove impurities by filtering the water we use before releasing it back to our community. The metal byproducts of our manufacturing process are reclaimed also. These are just a couple of examples of how we practice conservation. Our desire is to preserve and protect what we have been given so that future generations can enjoy what we do today.

Our Values

Environmental Stewardship

Riva cares for the environment by monitoring our energy usage and environmental impact. Simple things like installing energy efficient lighting, reducing our energy consumption during working hours and ongoing performance maintenance of our machinery to ensure optimal output without waste are examples of what we do to reduce carbon emissions and our carbon footprint. Each Riva team member knows that tomorrow depends on how we take care of things today.

Recycled Silver

The environmental and social costs of metals mining include using as much as 10 per cent of world energy,  contributing to poisonous emissions and human rights abuses, as well as vast landscape damage. In an effort to produce sustainable jewelry, RIVA Precision Manufacturing uses recycled sterling silver from United Precious Metals. United is a recycled silver vendor certified by SCS Global Services.

Mercury Free Mining

Global mercury pollution is one of the greatest threats society faces today, potentially affecting every community in every part of our world as mercury never breaks down to a non-toxic state. RIVA Precision Manufacturing proudly supports the Mercury Free Mining Challengean organization dedicated to removing mercury from the gold mining industry and offering a $1,000,000 prize to the team or individual that discovers an environmentally friendly, affordable means of separating crushed, finely divided gold from its ore.

Our Values

Ethical Responsibility

We live by the Golden Rule so we will never buy products (precious metals, gems, etc.) from sources we do not know or trust. We will not create work conditions that deprive our team members of human dignity or a safe environment. And we will never compromise ourselves for a shortcut. These principles are non-negotiable and are part of the Riva DNA.

Fairmined

RIVA Precision is currently offering chain manufactured from 100% certified fairmined gold. Custom fairmined gold pieces are also available upon request. Supply is severely limited.

Conflict Free Metals

RIVA Precision Manufacturing is committed to using strictly conflict free and/or fair-mined metals to manufacture high-end, ethical jewelry. Our suppliers are certified by the Responsible Jewelry Council. Their certifications guarantee Conflict-free gold from a conflict-free smelter as certified by Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative (CFSI) to the Conflict-Free Smelter Program (CFSP), conflict-free gold conforming to the Signet Responsible Sourcing Protocol (SRSP) criteria for refinery sources and recycled gold as certified by SCS Global Services to the SCS Recycled Content Standard. This also covers the sourcing of 3TG. Additionally, all the silver we use is certified recycled by SCS Global services. (see more above)
