    Old Gold Ring found detecting yesterday 9.3 Need help with figuring how old this is..

    Found hunting an old park yesyerday. Was 10 inches deep and under a 5 inch root. It weighs 9.3 grams...Couldn't find any stamps that say ALASKA14K.... Just trying to find some history about it. One friend thinks it's from the late 1800's.. Thinks it might be the first Norstroms ring. Anyhelp would be much appreciated. Click image for larger version.

    The pattern is typical of Black Hills Gold (three tone). That's all I've got.
    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    I agree with Charlie that your ring does resemble Black Hills Gold... but how does the 'Alaska14K' stamp factor into it's manufacture?

    "Black Hills gold jewelry is a type of jewelry manufactured in the Black Hills of South Dakota. It was first created in the 1870s during the Black Hills Gold Rush by a French goldsmith named Henri LeBeau, who is said to have dreamed about the design after passing out from thirst and starvation. Black Hills gold jewelry depicts leaves, grape clusters and vines, and is made with alloys of gold with standard yellow gold as well as green and pink gold. In 1980, the 8th Circuit affirmed an injunction ruling that if a manufacturer was to call its jewelry Black Hills Gold, then it must be made in the Black Hills.

    The state of South Dakota designated Black Hills gold as the official state jewelry in 1988. The designs use grapes, grape leaves and grape stems and are easily recognizable for their distinctive colors. Silver is alloyed with the yellow gold to produce the green hue, and copper is alloyed with the yellow gold to make the red or pink gold. The jewelry was originally made with South Dakota-mined gold but in more recent years, since the closure of the Homestake Mine, the gold is sourced elsewhere."

    Stylistically, I feel your ring dates to the first quarter of the 20thc.

    As I am finding , In life we begin having the Blissful happiness & the Wonder & innocence of a Child, then fall Quickly, then spend the rest of our lives trying to reach that point where we began ,through Pleasure , Fame, & Materials but Only 'Through true faith in Jesus , can we find Prefect Happiness or true Meaning in our Short lives on this Beautiful Earth filled with both the Light of Pure goodness & The Darkness of Pure Evil.
