Black Hills gold jewelry is a type of jewelry manufactured in the Black Hills of South Dakota. It was first created in the 1870s during the Black Hills Gold Rush by a French goldsmith named Henri LeBeau, who is said to have dreamed about the design after passing out from thirst and starvation. Black Hills gold jewelry depicts leaves, grape clusters and vines, and is made with alloys of gold with standard Solid Gold as well as green and pink gold. The exceptionally captivating design features tri-tone gold: Yellow, Pink, and Green. The pink gold used in Black Hills jewelry is made by mixing pure Solid Gold with copper, whose concentration in the alloy determines how intense the pink color will be. The green gold used to create the grape leaves and stems is made by adding silver and pure gold together.
On the Mohs scale of hardness, Ceylon sapphires come in at 9, which is very close to diamonds, which rank at 10. This makes sapphires highly desirable gems for jewelry, since people want gems with durability. Considered to be the best sapphires today are the ones mined in Sri Lanka. The blue sapphires from Sri Lanka, now referred to as Ceylon Sapphires (and Sri-Lankan Sapphires) are known for being lighter, brighter, and more vivid than the dark blue sapphires that come from other countries. Sapphires are seen as the guardians of love. When given as a gift, sapphires enhance love and tunes your spirits to one another. Also, they have been used to banish envy and jealousy as well as promote fidelity in marriage.
