The natural color that is used for creating all of these colors that you can see in Black Hills Gold jewelry is yellow 24kt. Yellow 24kt gold is mixed with sterling silver to create the green gold and the pink or rose gold is created through mixing yellow 24kt gold and copper.

There are different metals that are used for creating the frames of these pieces of jewelry as there are frames which are made of yellow gold while there are others which are made of sterling silver to allow you to select the materials and colors that suit your taste. The grape leaves that are used for decorating the pieces of Black Hills Gold jewelry are hand engraved and the whole pieces are handmade by professional and talented artisans which means that there are not two pieces of Black Hills Gold jewelry which are the same.
In addition to using grape leaves for decorating Black Hills Gold jewelry pieces, you can also find other designs and decorations in the form of grape stems and grapes. Black Hills Gold jewelry is manufactured in Black Hills only and it is thought that this happens because the gold which is used for making these pieces of jewelry with these features and designs is only mined in the Black Hills and this is not true.
