One of the things Rio is most proud of is the depth of the product lines we offer to jewelers like you. This depth is due largely to our in-house manufacturing teams; so, this week on The Studio, you’ll meet Jeff Zirwas, a “Rio Superstar” and an indispensible member of the team. You’ll hear about how Jeff and all the creative problem-solvers in manufacturing create the products and tools you love.
