Black Hills Gold is a unique American art form still rooted in the handcrafted tradition of it's origin, dating back to the late 1800s.

No two pieces are identical and you can see and feel the quality that goes into every ring, necklace, bracelet, earrings, and watch.


The Black Hills Gold Legend

The 1876 gold rush brought all sorts of characters to the Black Hills, including French jeweler Henri LeBeau who hoped to strike gold and make his fortune.

Legend has it that LeBeau, unfamiliar with the territory, became lost in the Black Hills wilderness. He collapsed of exhaustion and dreamed of lush grape vineyards from his home country. After awaking starved and parched, LeBeau luckily stumbled across native South Dakotan grape vines growing near a creek. LeBeau's life was saved and a legend was born.

In honor of the lifesaving grapes, LeBeau crafted gold "good luck" jewelry featuring the grape vine motif. The trend spread among other miners hoping for a little luck and LeBeau's jewelry soon became known as Black Hills Gold.



"To the one who wears the Black Hills Gold, good luck and fortune will unfold."

- Gypsy legend from the 1950s
