RIIA is a jewelry brand based in Los Angeles. RIIA channels an obsession with minimalism and constructivism to revive the elegance of pure forms.
In a true neo-minimalist fashion, our designs radically eschew the overly decorative, ornamental aesthetics of conventional jewelry with flashy stone centerpieces. Instead, RIIA calls attention to the materiality of the object. Our designs begin with blocks and grids, and from there explore the possibility of play through asymmetry, repetition, and moments where elements of a piece interact through movement, weight, or points of contact. RIIA pieces engage a meditation on form, the simplicity of our shapes and materials emphasized by careful artisanal construction.
All pieces are handcrafted in Los Angeles. We choose methods of sourcing our materials that have a positive impact on people and the land. To top it off, our pieces are made purely of precious metals, promising the finest quality and enduring value.
RIIA jewelry is a product of time, attention, and care. Each piece is personal, made unique by the touch of our team. All pieces are adaptable to modifications in size, or material.
RIIA was established by Ukraine-born designer Valerie Chaika.
