A combination of 12k pink and green gold leaves, sterling silver and black antiquing has resulted in this unique and lavish jewelry piece. There’s even a quaint little story to go with this one:
According to legend, a French goldsmith named Henri LeBeau became lost during the “gold rush days” of the middle 1870’s in the Black Hills of South Dakota and fell asleep believing he was dying of thirst and starvation. During a dream, he saw a mountain stream with grapevines growing on its banks.
Upon awakening, he walked over a rise and found the stream and grapevines just as he had in his dream and, out of gratitude, dedicated his life and talents to creating jewelry in the shapes of grape clusters and leaves fashioned in pink, green and yellow gold. Today, a series of up to 40 different steps are necessary to capture the same dramatic detail in our traditional and contemporary Black Hills Gold designs.
