EW Original Gold Nugget Stud Earrings


The Klondike Gold Rush began in 1896 when local miners found shiny gold deposits in the remote Yukon region of Alaska. 100,000 prospectors traveled over miserable terrain to seek their fortune in the freezing mountains. Miners sifted through tons of silty dirt by hand, searching for gold nuggets that broke out of quartz deposits deep in the earth. These studs are made with gold nuggets mined from those same eroded Klondike streams and riverbeds - the land hasn't given up all of it's gold quite yet. Although each nugget weighs about 2 grams, the shape and color will vary slightly. Each one is unique, without any cutting, shaping, or treatment other than the 14k gold posts and backs we've added.
