This listing is for an older vintage Navajo belt buckle made of sterling silver and turquoise. This large handcrafted buckle is in excellent vintage condition featuring a display of tightly bunched stones over a thick bed of oxidized silver.
Each stone sits securely in a raised sawtooth bezel that pops off of the dark oxidized face. They have strong vivid shades of green along with heavy black matrixes. Each stone has just the right amount of matrixes to match up perfectly with its neighboring stone. The design is finished with a wide border of deeply hand stamped silver. The swivel belt keeper and hook located on the back is in mint condition with all the parts and pieces being made of sterling silver.
A fantastic find for both men and women. Will make an excellent addition to any existing Native American jewelry collection or could be the perfect piece to start one. Not too big or gaudy, yet not so small it wont be seen. This piece is one to cherish and enjoy for now...... And hand down to loved ones in the future.
