The History of Black Hills Gold
Learn about the history of Black Hills Gold and Landstroms!
Take a trip back to South Dakota in the early days, before it was even a state and was just a territory, during the last great American gold rush of the 1800's! This video takes you back to the early days in the towns of Deadwood and Lead, and explains how Black Hills Gold jewelry began and how Landstroms came to be the sole owner of all the original Black Hills Gold designs. You'll learn about the famous characters of the past who were instrumental in making this style of jewelry the unique American art form it is today, such as Henri LeBeau, George Butler, R.S. Quimby, Ed Lampinen, Frank Thorpe and, of course, Ivan Landstroms.
