What is Black Hills Gold Jewelry?

In essence, by law any piece of jewelry bearing the description "Black Hills Gold" must be manufactured in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Traditional Black Hills Gold designs are typically comprised of rose colored and green colored leaves and gold grapes and grape vines. The rose color is made by combining gold with copper, and the delicate green color is achieved by adding sterling silver with gold.
Nowadays there are many manufacturers of Black Hills Gold jewelry, but Landstroms is the oldest of them… the Original Black Hills Gold.
Landstroms Original Black Hills Gold is a unique art form created the way it was originally made… by hand. Though Landstroms is the sole owner of all the original Black Hills gold designs, newcomers have created their own designs and have contributed to the popularity of Black Hills Gold jewelry as well.
