    Jumbo Headbands

    Headbands have come a long way and now they are big, embellished, and come in tons of textures, colors, and prints. We expect these oversize crowns to stick around for a while.

    Minimal Pins

    Whether you need to fasten a loose fringe, or simply add a subtle adornment to your hair, metal pins are an excellent option. Their negative space effect adds an interesting element to any hairstyle.

  6. Adorn Yourself In Black Hills Gold

    September 10, 2019 by barbara

    Sometimes, when it comes to shopping for jewelry, it can be hard to find just the right thing. There are so many options that it can sometimes feel overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to feel that way. Whether you’re looking for a gift for a loved one that is authentic and elegant, or simply looking to treat yourself, Black Hills gold earrings could be the answer for you.

    What Is Black Hills Gold?

    Black Hills gold is a piece of heirloom jewelry that is often handcrafted. The term “Black Hills gold” does not refer to a type of gold, but rather to a specific style of jewelry that comes from the Black Hills area of South Dakota.

    What Are the Origins of Black Hills Gold?

    Black Hills gold was developed in the Black Hills area of South Dakota in the 1800s. Gold was discovered there around this time, which caused an influx of settlers looking to mine it. Black Hills gold was originally designed by T.S. Butler, who was a local goldsmith. Later on, his grandson F.L. Thorpe started a company manufacturing the jewelry and helped to design many of the elements of Black Hills gold jewelry we are familiar with today.

    What Does Black Hills Gold Look Like?

    Over the years Black Hills gold has come to include more designs than it originally started out with. However, some signature details of a piece of Black Hills gold jewelry include tricolored gold, with the hues pink, green, and yellow being the most common. Some signature designs that you will see often in this kind of jewelry are grapevines, leaves and stems.

    So, whether you’re looking to surprise someone special with a unique gift or are maybe looking to try a new style of jewelry for yourself, Black Hills gold could be the right thing for you.
