About Landstrom's Black Hills Gold...
Landstrom's is the oldest Black Hills Gold manufacturing company and is the only true heir to the original Black Hills Gold designs, tools, and manufacturing methods made over 100 years ago.
The distinctive grape and leaf design in three colors of gold make Black Hills Gold a unique American art form. In an age of robotic manufacturing, each piece of Landstrom's Black Hills Gold continues to be handcrafted by our highly skilled and talented artisans.
According to legend, a French goldsmith named Henri LeBeau became lost during the "gold rush days" of the middle 1870s in the Black Hills of South Dakota. He 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 rose, 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.
