The Symbol of Riverside

The Raincross symbol was patented in 1908 by Frank A. Miller, founder of the Mission Inn, and his architect, Arthur B. Benton. Intent on giving Riverside a special image, they drew on local history and culture. Elements of the Raincross logo include a replica of Father Junipero Serra’s mass bell, a wooden frame, and a double-armed cross from Miller’s collection. The double-armed cross is an ancient Anasazi symbol known as the "Indian Raincross," representing the dragonfly that comes with the summer rains. In 1968 the Raincross became the official symbol for the city of Riverside. Variations of this unique emblem are seen throughout the community in the logos of businesses, government departments and the city flag.

The Raincross Collection is designed by our own Jim Sweaney, and all the pieces are hand made in-house with 14 karat white or yellow gold. We can also create any of our designs in peach gold, rose gold, 18 karat gold, platinum, and sterling silver by request.
