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