History & Friendship

The story of RÊVER is a story of a friendship, a rich history and inevitably, a shared vison.

Ariel Tivon – 2nd generation of a family-run business established in 1963 specialising in design & creation of fine gem-set jewellery. Gil Holt – 3rd generation of a family-run business established in 1915 originally specialising in silversmithing and then branching out into other forms of luxury goods. Each on their own trajectory and each one talented in their own right, brought together one fateful night.

“The connection was immediate & electrifying! Each of us instantly knew that we were destined to meet & work together. It sounds strange but we both instantly just liked each other and felt that the meeting was pre-destined. We started to talk and the more we spoke, the more we found we had so many commonalities in our personal backgrounds as well as our professional lives. Very shortly thereafter we shook hands and agreed to collaborate and bring the best of what we do to a wider audience. Thus RÊVER MASTERPIECES was born.” Ariel Tivon
