The Alaskan gold rushes inspired a unique jewelry style. Gold Nugget and gold quartz jewels were abundant, as in the California gold rush, but Alaska also brought exotic materials like petrified mastodon and walrus tusks and teeth into the mix. This ring is a perfect example of an Alaska gold rush jewel. Petrified mastodon tusk surrounded by nuggets in a classically Victorian navette shape. Circa 1880.
