Black Hills Gold
The Black Hills are located in western South Dakota. The area is well known for Mt. Rushmore as well as Deadwood, a legendary gold mining town in the Black Hills that the Lakota referred to as Paha Sápa giving the illusion of black. In 1874 a military expedition led by General George Armstrong Custer entered the Black Hills. It was during this time when gold was discovered in the area, when settlers were rushing to the Black hills seeking to strike it rich in the new goldfields. In 1878 Along with the settlers was an artist and jeweler who after buying raw gold from the prospectors would create a new and exquisite jewelry that ultimately became the tradition and style of Black Hills Gold. This tradition and style has lasted for generation and is still alive and popular today.
