Ted Doudak is the founder and CEO of RIVA Precision Manufacturing, a vertically-integrated contract jewelry manufacturer based in New York, NY, serving ethically- and sustainably-conscious designers, retailers and brands for more than three decades. RIVA Precision is proud to be one of the earliest adopters of responsible jewelry manufacturing practices in the U.S., and is one of the first Fairmined-authorized suppliers in North America.
There’s a paradigm shift in precious metals sourcing—now, more than ever, traceability is key. And no other traceable gold has quite the cachet of Fairmined gold. RIVA Precision, one of the vendors who will be showcasing at the upcoming Responsible Gem Boutique 2022, is proud to be one of the first few @fairminedofficial Authorized Suppliers. Come see them to ask about their Fairmined gold chain offerings (they have four sizes of cable chains, and four styles of paper clip chains). They also offer lobster claw clasps and earring findings! All of them made with the finest Fairmined gold from the wonderful, hardworking folks at Minera Oro Puno in Peru’s San Antonio de Putin province! And if you are a Fairmined-licensed designer/brand looking to hand off the production of your Fairmined gold collections to a full-service jewelry manufacturer, RIVA also offers contract manufacturing services (from casting to finishing)!
