Sterling silver Navajo belt buckle made up of 4 elements, each one being hand-stamped of Native patterns.
This beautiful type of belt buckle is called Ranger Buckle and is a timeless US Western fashion accessory. 
This belt buckle is handcrafted with the Tufa Cast process: 
The artist takes a mold made of volcanic stone (tufa) and divises it in two parts. In the first part, he carves a design of his choice, melts silver in, and tightly covers it with the second part of the mold. Once the silver is hard, the mold eventually breaks, making this piece a unique item. This technique creates a jewel of traditionnal rough aspect on which we can clearly see the beautiful lumps of tufa stone. 
This belt buckle is polished, to have a smooth and refined finish. 
Suitable for a leather width of 18mm.
Width of the buckle (in inches) : 1.7
