Gold Nugget Jewelry
Discover our gold nugget jewelry made of 18k gold or 24k gold. This collection features original designs of gold nugget rings, earrings, and pendants both for men and women. All our gold nugget jewelry is designed and made in our jewelry workshop, thus allowing us to guarantee the quality of our jewelry. With this collection, we aim at making unique jewelry showing the natural shapes of genuine gold nuggets that can be found in rivers. If you have in mind a special jewelry project inspired by a genuine gold nugget shape, do not hesitate to contact us to ask for an estimate of your gold nugget jewelry project.
All the designs of gold nugget jewelry offered in our collection are handcrafted in our workshop. Only the cutting and faceting of the precious stones set on our rings are done by professional lapidaries and not in our jewelry workshop.
As you have certainly noticed, we do not resell junk or simple jewelry plated with fine gold and mass-produced, but we manufacture original jewelry in 18k gold or pure gold in our manufacturing workshop. This implies a lead time necessary for the manufacture of your jewelry, so much so that we detail the time required for its manufacture in the section: Handcrafted Jewelry, on the product page in question.
We master all stages of manufacturing in our jewelry workshop, from the creation of digital CAD models, the 3D printing process, the lost wax casting process, the work on the jeweler's bench of 18k or 24k gold, as well as the setting of our precious stones and diamonds, thus allowing us to guarantee the quality of our jewelry.
Raw gold nuggets in nature
Gold nuggets are a fascinating piece of raw gold found in nature and known as native gold. Usually, nuggets are 20k to 22k pure and some Australian nuggets can reach 23k of gold purity. Impurities found in these nuggets can be silver and copper. With such a pure gold nugget, one can notice the strong yellow-orange color of pure gold. The deeper the orange-yellow color is, the purer is the gold nugget.
These gold nuggets were the first pieces of gold found by humans to make antique gold jewelry. The easiest way to find such gold nuggets is in watercourses where the water washed ores, separating gold from the rest. Then, by gravity, gold naturally lays on the water bed as it is much denser than other metals, rocks, and minerals.
While most gold nuggets can be gold gains or rather small, the biggest gold nugget ever found weighed 71kg of gold, it was found in Australia in 1869.
Natural gold nuggets can take any shape and are pretty rare in nature. It is even rarer that a natural nugget found in a gold mine could be used as a pendant because of its shape and size. So we make them in 18k or pure gold shaped as natural as possible in our jewelry workshop.
