In 1954, Hans RIVOIR established his namesake company as a jewellery trading business in the heart of Pforzheim, Germany’s ”Golden City”. Spurred on by the post-war ‘economic miracle’, RIVOIR underwent a powerful period of steady growth and development in the 19505 and 19605.

Known for supreme precision and reliability, RIVOIR’s enterprise soon earned the trust and admiration of numerous
jewellers both at home and abroad. Right from the start, RIVOIR was driven by exceptional creativity, the preservation of traditional craftsmanship, and the joined expertise of Pforzheim’s best goldsmiths and stone setters. As a result, the jewellery wholesaler soon grew into one of the region’s leading goldsmith studios. Having held the reins for nearly ńve decades, Hans RIVOIR passed on the legacy to son Stephan RIVOIR in 2002, thereby ensuring RIVOIR’s continued existence as an independent family business.

At RIVOIR, our staff actively shape and maintain the long-term focus of our corporate culture. Many of our loyal employees have been with us for decades and are deeply committed to RIVOIR’s key values and brand promise.


As a member of the Responsible Jewellery Council we practice an uncompromising adherence to responsible ethical, social and environmental practices along the entire jewellery supply chain. In the foreseeable future we aim to further strengthen our position as the partner of choice in diamond jewellery.
