According to legend, a young Frenchman lost his way while searching for gold during the gold rush days in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Growing weak with hunger and frustration, he fell asleep under a tree and dreamed of the beautiful grapevines and grapes of his homeland growing near the sides of a babbling brook. He was inspired by his dream so he created a tri-colored gold jewelry with the grapes, leaves, and vines which is known today as Black Hills Gold jewelry. In addition, to the legend of Black Hills Gold, it is also believed that anyone who wears a piece of Black Hills Gold jewelry will have good luck.

In the 1980s a federal judge ruled that if a manufacturer was to call its jewelry Black Hills Gold jewelry then, it must be made in the Black Hills of South Dakota.

This lovely, delicate brooch consists of an open quadrilateral shaped open frame which holds four various size grape leaves and a small cluster of grapes in the center. The piece measures 1 1/4" in length and width and has a safety clasp mechanism. The frame is stamped "Black Hills 10k Gold". Near mint condition.
