Alaskan Gold Rush Fine Jewelry first opened our doors back in 1978. Back then we had a small shop upstairs in the Co-Op Plaza. We moved next door in 1987 to our current location. Over the decades we have served Fairbanks we've enjoyed seeing the growth and changes both to downtown Fairbanks and to our small business.
Over the years, our mission has stayed the same: create the highest quality most beautiful work around at fair prices.
Our website relfects our sales floor inventory to a degree. Most of our effort is focused on getting our gold nugget jewelery selection online, which is the heart of what we do and sets us apart. If you'd like to see more of our diamond or gemstone inventory and can't come in to visit us in person just let us know via email or a phone call and we'll be happy to assist. Our inventory system is simple and classic - it's all paper based. Which means when something sells in our shop it isn't automatically updated on our website. So if you want to be extra sure something is in stock, just give us a call. Furthermore, it means when jewelry is remade or gold prices fluctuate prices don't always get updated online. We will do our best to reflect accurate pricing, but with the gold market being what it is, there are times when prices fluctuate and we ask for your understanding.
We hand make our jewelry using natural Alaskan gold in flake and nugget form. We are set apart by our unbeatable quality and how we let the gold nuggets shine in their natural beauty. We don't polish, tumble, or otherwise alter the nuggets. Each nugget or flake is handpicked to fit into each unique design. We've spent decades working on relationships with miners that ensure we have the largest and best collection of natural Alaskan gold nuggets.
Gold nuggets are found by local miners across the state who are placer mining. Historically, placer mining was done with gold pans and intense manual labor. Today you still find miners using sluice boxes of various forms and sizes for mining operations of different scales. Placer miners are seeking after gold deposits that were left behind by nature when rivers and streams moved through an area.
We have jewelry professionals ready to help.
