In 1849, the big gold strikes in California attracted not only prospectors, but also traders and artisans who followed the booms throughout the West. Among them were emigrant jewelers who made the hard crossing from the East, having labored for months over the dangerous plains and desolate high deserts of the heartland to arrive in the fertile Sacramento Valley. A common practice in the jeweler's trade at the time was to craft jewelry from gold in the same camp where it was mined, with a single grape leaf traditionally used as a design. Nature has always been a design inspiration, and in finding abundant grapes growing there, the craftsmen were moved to expand the traditional design to include clustered leaves and fruit.

"Ornaments that consist of gold and silver threads are known as filigree work. Metal threads are made by plaiting them and then are soldered to the ground metal. This is very common design of Indian jewelry. These designs require great time and patience in their execution. These are most commonly used in Andhra Pradesh and Orissa."
