Wear Your Silver Snowflake Jewelry!

silver snowflake necklace
Across the west we've seen very little snow so far this season. In fact we've seen very little precipitation of any kind. According to forecasters with NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center back in October:
The western half of the continental U.S. and central and northern Alaska could be in for a warmer-than-average winter.
 And so far they have been right.


Maybe if everyone puts on their favorite snowflake jewelry we can

The Change Of Seasons Is Here

Fall leaf
It’s late October.  Some of us feel a certain rush to still get a couple of things accomplished before winter breaks in. The yard needs to be cleaned up, a couple of paint jobs need to be done, the garden needs winterizing, the lawn cut one more time, the sprinklers blown out.

But then some of us experience a most beautiful, warm, sunny Fall, and we want to get away, go on our last camping trip, get out of town. There is just so much to do. Well, it’s important to remember to slow down, take a

It's almost October so it's time for some Rose Zircon!

rose zircon earrings photo
While the American Gem Society recognizes both the Opal and Pink Tourmaline as the official genuine birthstones of October, lab - created* Rose Zircon is a brilliant stone which offers a less expensive alternative.

Being a fairly hard stone, Rose Zircon can be faceted and polished to a brilliant luster, and has superb clarity with few inclusions, making it a perfect choice for birthstone jewelry.

If you're considering a proposal, there are some things you can do to ensure that the ring you choose for this special moment will be an outstanding choice... one she'll be proud to show off on her wedding day and forever after.

The best engagement rings offer the highest standards of quality and workmanship. Traditional designs feature solitaire diamonds (a single diamond) normally held in a setting with six prongs (referred to as the Tiffany mount). Other designs include smaller side stones in addition to the solitaire.

Show Mom you care on Mothers Day

Mothers Day JewelryThis year Mother's Day lands on Sunday, May 13th. Mother's Day is a day that commemorates all the special things that mothers do: nurture our children, provide the best advise when issues arise, offer comfort when things get tough, extend support and caring when life throws hurdles in the way, make the family laugh and cheer us up when we really need it. Above all, our mothers will always be there for us.

We sometimes forget, or take for granted the multitude of roles mothers play that make the wheel of family life turn. We might often overlook the fact that mothers go through emotionally difficult times too. We may neglect to see when our mother's daily routine and workload gets overbearing and hard to manage. And yet, through it all, mothers still maintain their foundation as a center point of our families.

Call Now: 888-580-8448Mother's Day is a good opportunity to recognize all these efforts, acknowledge her dedication and express your feelings of gratitude. For some of us, it may be difficult to tell our mothers that we love them. A thoughtful present can help show our love and help communicate that message for us. A nice floral gift is a good start, your Mom will certainly appreciate it!

And a beautiful piece of gold or silver jewelry is a lasting gift that Mother can cherish for a long time. At BlackHillsGoldSource you'll find the best selection of authentic mothers pendants made by Landstroms. Mothers jewelry is a piece of jewelry, usually a ring or a pendant that is "personalized" with a birthstone for each of the mother's children. All Landstroms jewelry is made in America in the Black Hills of South Dakota the same way it's been made for over 100 years: by hand.

Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for her

Valentines gift image

Valentine’s day has been the subject of legends, traditions, medieval plays, rhymes and poems for many centuries and today it still buzzes through our society every February. This year why not will make Valentine’s Day the best yet and memorable for both of you?
Here’s an idea that is sure to add that extra touch to a special day. Assuming that you both work regular hours, suggest to her that you have a special happy hour around 5:30 or 6:00 pm. Of course, you already arranged for a nice bouquet of flowers to be delivered earlier that day.

When that time arrives, relax and have a nice glass of wine and just talk away the day’s events. At 6:30 pm your limousine arrives to whisk you away to that favorite local restaurant you save for special occasions right on time for your 7:00 pm. reservation.

Once at the restaurant, you get comfortable, maybe order an appetizer, have a nice bottle of wine with dinner and then it’s time to present her with a gift, preferably a piece of beautiful jewelry.

Then onto dessert, maybe some coffee, the relaxing limo ride home… and there’s still time for wherever the wind takes you.
We're moving into late January, so it’s time to hustle but you can still get it done! Here are the steps to make your Valentine’s Day event a success with the least amount of time and effort.
  1. Restaurant – call today to make your reservation! You can save money by checking first at but do it now, February 14th is less than a month away!
  2. Flowers – save time, call FTD at 888-580-8448 today and order your flowers, get it done!
  3. Limousine – you can easily schedule a limo online through various services such as This may be a little pricey so you can skip this step and use your own vehicle (or have a single friend chauffeur you).
  4. Jewelry – our suggestion: a beautiful Black Hills Gold heart pendant, made in America since 1878 by Landstroms Original Black Hills Gold.
The main thing to do is to plan ahead so that when the day comes you can both relax. It’s supposed to be an enjoyable, relaxing and fun evening. So anything you can do, such as selecting your clothes in advance, getting an early start, and keeping her in the loop (except for the surprises!) will help to make your special evening one that you will both remember.
