Over a span of 14 years, 360 gold miners-turned-craftsmen carved a rough granite mountain into a polished national treasure, known today as Mount Rushmore. Today, in dozens of intricate steps, their craftspeople carry on this tradition of quality and excellence with every piece of Mt. Rushmore Black Hills Gold and diamond jewelry. There are many steps involved in the handcrafting of a single delicate design. Each piece is cast, shaped, ground, polished, soldered, cleaned, wriggled, and engraved by skilled artisans. Take a fascinating FREE tour through the jewelry factory to watch up-close and learn the details of how gold jewelry is made. During the tour, you'll see the ancient process of lost-wax casting and how diamonds are cast in molten gold! Tours are arranged to fit your schedule and they're conveniently located on your way to Mount Rushmore!
