Born in 1949, James Rivière began his journey as a designer early, participating in competitions at the Triennale di Milano (a design and art museum in Milan) where he won competitions for jewellery designs in 1972 and 1973. He also participated in the establishment of the jewellery department at "Istituto Europeo di Design" in Milan, where he still teaches.

Rivière believes jewellery should be timeless, however, he follows contemporary styles, using strong colours taken from the Mediterranean culture: blue, orange, yellow, red. In some collections he is influenced by the modern movement of the Bauhaus, in others by symbolism and peoples of the past or by the abstract meaning of geometric shapes.
