One of a Kind piece. 

Navajo belt buckle with a beautiful Kingman turquoise (Arizona) set in sterling silver and stamped of numerous Native patterns, giving relief and structure to this beautiful designer piece. 

We can see that the number 4 features on this belt buckle in several ways: four palm shapes enhanced with four spheres are carved on the four edges of this buckle and the turquoise is surrounded by a cross with four short and rounded branches. The number four is very important in Native culture as it is linked to many symbols: the 4 winds, the 4 directions, the 4 stages of life. 

This belt buckle is representative of Navajo silversmithing: a silver wire circles the turquoise, reminding the stone must be tamed as a wild animal. 

This belt buckle is suitable for a leather width of 1.4" 

Size of the buckle (HxL in inches) : 2.8" x 3.3"

Belt buckle back in iron. 

Proudly handmade in USA.

  • Unisex One of a Kind piece. 
Mat sterling silver belt buckle with a Cerillos turquoise (New Mexico) set in its center. 
This belt buckle is handcrafted thanks to the Sandcast technique, one of the oldest process used by the Navajos: 
The artist takes a mold made of sand (sandcast) and divises it in two parts.

Once the silver is hard, the jewel created has a traditionnal rough aspect on which we can clearly see the beautiful lumps of the sandcast. This belt buckle is polished in order to have a smooth and refined finish.
