Our unique ring designs are crafted to highlight the beauty of natural Gold Quartz, and Alaskan Gold nuggets.
The high grade gold quartz ore is taken directly from the walls of the sixteen to one mine. The Gold Quartz is cut and polished to expose the pure gold veins inside the quartz.
Gold Quartz is graded based on the color of the quartz and gold patterning. We use the finest AAA grade with milk white quartz and striking gold pattern contrast in our designs.
Whats so cool about the combination of Gold Quartz and Gold Nuggets is that it displays both types of gold mining, lode and placer, in its pure raw form as it was naturally created.
Gold nuggets were formed in quartz veins, then broken free from their original source by natural forces. the flakes and nuggets are then concentrated in streams and rivers forming "placer deposits"
miners would search for the source of these deposits in an attempt to discover the vein they came from known as the "lode"
Starting with carved wax the ring designs are then cast in 10, 14, and 18 carat yellow or white gold.
Using our cast rings we select, cut and polish the gold quartz and mount the cabochon into the ring. These stunning patterns of gold veining and different character of the gold nuggets of the make each handcrafted ring a unique work of art.
You can add diamonds, rubies, emeralds, Sapphires, just about any gemstone available to create even more stunning effects.
We can also help you design your own custom piece if you want to make it even more personal.
