Rustic Vintage Natural Gold Nugget Inlay Band in 14k Gold
* * SOLD * *
A soulful vintage gold band, modeled in 14k yellow gold and inlaid with natural gold nuggets. This traditional style of gold nugget ring is made by forming a sleeve or trough, with a recessed area to frame the nuggets— these are then soldered in place, as-found, so their original organic shapes and textures remain intact. Because they have not been alloyed with other metals or refined in any way, these gold nuggets test around 22k gold, and have a rich, high color. This gold band was made and purchased in Skagway Alaska, an important destination during the Klondike Gold Rush, which began in the 1890s and brought tens of thousands of people to southeast Alaska. This ring is well suited to both men and women.
