Made from repurposed coral, most likely sponge coral.
You’ll notice its porous structure, different shades, veins, darker spots and many “imperfections” all of which create interesting patterns that add to its character.
Sponge corals are not sponges, they’ve only got that name due to their similar appearance.
They are as hard as other corals, which is a 3.5 out of 10 on the Mohs scale. Therefore they should not be soaked in water and are in general more delicate than other stones.
Designed & Handmade in Italy
We make our jewelry for modern women like you, who live consciously and seek jewelry that reflects their unique style.
Designed and made in Italy, each piece draws inspiration from the beauty of nature and the power of love.
Our designs celebrate the interconnectedness of life, the sacredness of nature and the beauty of being human.
Our values guide every step of our process, because we understand that true beauty can never be created at the expense of people or the environment.
Handmade with devotion, our jewelry may bear imperfections, but it's these very imperfections that breathe life and character into each piece, making it as unique and exceptional as the women who wear it.
Sustainable Metals, Gemstones & Pearls
At Rays & Riches, we're on a mission to create stunning and profoundly sustainable jewelry, rooted in our respect for all life and a profound understanding of its interconnectedness.
Our gemstones, sourced ethically from repurposed jewelry, embody this commitment. By reusing existing gems, we contribute to a circular economy, reducing carbon emissions and sidestepping the negative impacts of conventional gemstone mining.
Emphasizing our commitment, even our pearls are repurposed, as conventionally farmed pearls significantly fall short of being truly sustainable.
Our dedication extends to the precious metals we use by offering two sustainable options: recycled metals with a lower environmental impact and ethically sourced metals supporting responsible, mining.
With every piece we create, we aim to showcase the beauty of sustainable jewelry, a reflection of our love for the Earth and our belief in the importance of ethical, responsible practices.

So you can wear our jewelry confidently, whether you forget to remove it before showering or when washing your hands; Your jewelry investment is set to retain its beauty over time, with no worries about color fading.
Furthermore, our unwavering commitment to using only the highest-quality, nickel-free materials makes our jewelry hypoallergenic, offering you both lasting beauty and the comfort of knowing it's safe for your skin.
Care for your waterproof Rays&Riches jewelry
Best practices to keep your jewelry looking new for longer.
-Always make sure your jewelry is clean and dry before putting it away.
-Store your silver and gold-filled jewelry separate from each other and away from jewelry made from cheaper metals, to avoid the metals reacting with each other.
-Regularly use a soft cloth to wipe away dirt, sweat, chemicals etc.
- Avoid exposing your jewelry to skin care products, soaps, detergents and perfumes.
- Remove your jewelry before doing high impact physical exercise and before entering salt or chlorinated water.
-To deep-clean your jewelry let it soak in a bowl with warm water and a few drops of mild dish-soap. Check wether eventual gemstones are waterproof and make sure to rinse it off afterwards and dry it thoroughly .
Even with proper storage and care, silver jewelry requires regular polishing with a soft cloth at least twice a year to remove tarnish.
Gold fill is highly resistant to tarnish but still benefits from regular cleaning and polishing.
Removing tarnish is quick and easy with the anti-tarnish-polishing cloth that comes with your order.

A note on gemstones.
Most gemstones in our collection are waterproof and safe to clean with diluted, mild dishwashing soap, although plain water is usually sufficient. An exception are porous or soft gemstones like coral, turquoise and amber.
We recommend to regularly wipe your gemstones clean with a soft cloth and only use water&soap when absolutely necessary and never with soft & porous gemstones.
What Is Gold Filled ?
Gold-filled jewelry is not gold plated!
It is much higher quality, suitable for sensitive skin, long lasting and waterproof.
Gold filled jewelry contains a substantial amount of gold, with over 100 times more gold than gold plated or vermeil jewelry. By legal standards, the gold layer in gold filled jewelry must make up at least 5% or 1/20 of the total weight.
This not only ensures longevity but also renders gold filled jewelry hypoallergenic, making it a safer choice for those with sensitive skin.
Gold fill is also a more environmentally friendly option compared to gold plated or gold vermeil.
