If you're coming from State Route 812, we're only 2.5 miles away and nestled between the Resha Road and Third Road. We can't wait for you to visit our cozy hideaway!

We always love staying in touch with our amazing customers, and we'd be thrilled if you joined our email list and followed us on social media. That way, you can stay up-to-date on all the latest news, promotions, and products. And of course, we always love seeing you in person at our retail shop! Thanks for being a part of our community.

We purchase all of our raw metals directly from a company out of New Mexico that sources from refiners on the LBMA. This means that materials are traceable and conflict free. Recycled materials are used whenever possible. Rio Grande strives to move beyond compliance in the responsible use of the shared resources that sustain our planet. Solar panels have powered our 180,000-square-foot facility since 2010, resulting in net-zero energy consumption. Ethical sourcing is a guiding principle for our business, from recycled fabrication metals to mine-to-market gemstones.

About our Jewelry

Have you noticed your sterling silver jewelry getting a little darker over time? Don't worry, it's just tarnishing, which is totally normal. In fact, some people actually like the look of tarnished silver because it adds depth and character to a piece of jewelry.

However, if you prefer your silver to stay shiny and bright, we have a few tips to help prevent tarnishing. First, store your jewelry in the air-tight baggie along with the anti-tarnish cloth that we provide. This will help keep oxygen and sulfur away from your jewelry.

Also, be sure to remove your jewelry before applying soaps, lotions, or before taking a dip in the pool. These substances can speed up the tarnishing process.

Oxygen in the air will tarnish Sterling Silver, so properly storing your jewelry will help minimize that oxidation. Here are some storage tips:

Store individual pieces separately.

Store each piece in an airtight bag.

Place in an area with low humidity.

Keep clasps/closures unhooked.

Place a packet of silica or piece of chalk in the storage bag.

We understand how much your jewelry means to you and we want it to a lifetime. The good news is that taking care of it is super easy, and we're here to help you with that! To keep your jewelry in great shape, avoid using household cleaning supplies and be mindful of certain foods that contain sulfur, like mustard, onions, and eggs. We know you love to look fabulous and use hairspray, lotion, and makeup, but it's best to put them on before wearing your jewelry. Lastly, don't forget to remove your jewelry before sunbathing or swimming - we want to help you keep those precious pieces sparkling and shining for years to come!

Do you love your jewelry to sparkle and shine? Here are some quick and easy tips to keep them looking their best! First, make sure to store each piece in a separate air tight baggie with the anti-tarnish tab provided. When it's time for a little extra shine, grab a non-abrasive yellow sunshine cloth to avoid scratches while cleaning and polishing. Just remember to rotate the cloth frequently for the best results! And when you're polishing, try to avoid intentionally oxidized areas to keep that special finish looking great. With these simple steps, your Sterling Roots jewelry will stay looking as good as new for years to come!
