The raw material base of Riva is the stainless steel 18/10. This number is the quality seal of riva objects, and refer to the metal composition: 18% chromium and approximately 10% nickel. the oxygen, when combined with chromium forms a thin oxide layer on its surface, which gives the stainless steel a high resistance to corrosion. Therefore, the better the polishing of a workpiece the more its surface is in contact with air and consequently more resistant to oxidation.
Symbol of purity, royalty and exclusivity, the term "24 carats" is a measure agreed to categorize the purest gold. It is in Riva's own workshops that the objects are gold plated, which makes possible the attention and special care of the craftsmen in each piece that receives the finishing.
The entire silver line of Riva receives 3 bath covers. Following the strictest quality standards required in major international markets such as France, Greece and Lebanon, each piece with a silver finish receives, first, a layer of alkaline copper, then a layer of 25 microns of nickel to finally deposit the Silver layer of 20 microns over copper and nickel.
