She was a wild west legend. "Pretty as a Victorian cameo and, when necessary, tougher than two-penny nails." That’s what they used to say about Nellie Cashman, so-called "angel" of the Wild West. She caught the pioneering bug when Ulysses S. Grant told her to seek adventure out west, and go west she did.
In a life that would include working as a prospector, store owner, nurse and restaurateur, Cashman always found time to help those in need. After moving to British Columbia to cash in on a gold strike, she heard that dozens of men were stranded in Cassiar Mountains in a snowstorm, Cashman immediately gathered a small crew to mount a rescue.
Attempting to save these men was considered so dangerous that even the Canadian Army wouldn’t go.
The Angel of Tombstone Collection captures the pioneering spirit of this true American original. Inspired by the fabled White Buffalo Turquoise found in the Nevada mountains, this collection is a testament to the strength and courage of those founding men and women of the Wild West. The stunning marbling makes each stone absolutely unique. Adding a dash of lab-created DiamondAura® brings out the distinct patterns of these stones even more. These unique pieces are truly meant for those determined individuals who won’t take no for an answer.
