Trusted partnerships deepen our commitment to gold and extend opportunities for jewelers.
Distinctive among elements, gold reaches deeply into history and connects people to profound commitments and milestones. Universally sought after, from ancient Egypt and Viking battle adornments to South Asia and beyond, gold is a part of our human journey. With respect for its cherished heritage, Rio Grande’s gold collection has been developed for jewelers who carry on gold’s distinguished history. Our network of supply partnerships, expanding inventory, and alignment with customers allow jewelers to create the next gold heirlooms—as either classically elegant or playfully modern designs.
Gold’s unique properties make it particularly well suited to meaningful jewelry in endless iterations. Jewelers and customers desire deeply meaningful adornments, as they have for millennia, and gold is an unparalleled resource in this regard. Tarnish resistant and undiminished by the elements or the passage of time, gold represents constancy and promise. Solid or gold-filled, its yellow, icy white, or rose gold tones shine with opportunity and its ever-present appeal evolves with modern trends.
Becky Scheffler, merchandising manager, is committed to offering gold through supply chain connections that enable flexibility in meeting customers’ desires. She emphasizes real-time responsiveness and she is passionate about helping jewelers source their ideal materials. As part of the Richline Group, our precious metals team strives to offer high-quality gold and gold-filled sheet and findings to widen the breadth of choice, allowing jewelers more creative freedom. Nathan Button, merchandising director, points out that collaboration with our sister companies has deepened our access to gold supply. As a result, Rio Grande offers more options in karat gold and gold-filled sheet, wire, tubing, and strip in addition to its endless collection of gold and gold-filled findings.
Whether as a metaphor for someone kind—a “heart of gold”—or as a reward for a world-class athletic performance, gold is an elevated symbol of worthiness. This idealized resource is more accessible than ever with our customized approach to support and our vast selection of materials. Partnering with jewelers as a trusted supplier, we foster gold’s millennia-long heritage by tailoring both supplies and support to individual businesses. This highly attuned approach to customer service, encompassing precision cuts, quality materials. and rich variety, ensures the nurturing and growth of each jeweler’s unique business and brand.
