Product Description

Blue Gem Turquoise belt buckle is custom Native American handmade of sterling silver by renowned Navajo silversmith Sam Gray.  Genuine Blue Gem Turquoise is set in a handmade crown bezel and framed on a very heavy gauge, hand-carved and stamped buckle.  Native American belt buckle was created using the overlay method of silversmithing: the design was hand-carved with a jeweler's saw and soldered to the backround silver.  The buckle was then hand-stamped, oxidized, slightly domed from the back and polished to a shine.  
  • Signed by the Artist. Certificate of Authenticity and picture of the artist included.
  • Dimensions: Turquoise belt buckle measures approximately 3" wide x 1 3/4"
  • Weight: 107 grams/3.8 ounces
  • Will fit a belt width of up to 1 1/4".
  • Blue Gem Turquoise: According to the artist, the turquoise in this belt buckle is from the Blue Gem Turquoise Mine in Nevada.  It is sometimes difficult to capture the exact color of turquoise as it varies in different light and appearance changes from one computer monitor to another. The turquoise in this Sam Gray Buckle is deep turquoise blue with very little matrix.
  • Made in the U.S.A.

You will appreciate the quality and feel of this handmade Navajo belt buckle by Sam Gray. Sam is known for his use of heavy gauge sterling silver, quality stones, deep stamping and intricate designs. If you are looking for a quality Native American buckle that is built to last, look no further.

How was it made? Native American turquoise belt buckle was handmade using the overlay technique. Navajo silversmith Sam Gray used very heavy gauge sterling silver so the designs are prominent and the reliefs are deep. The designs are hand-cut using a jeweler's saw. The remaining sheet of silver, or negative design, is then soldered to the bottom sheet. The silver buckle is then hand-stamped, the background is textured and oxidized and the silver is polished to a shine. The heavy gauge handmade silver crown bezel was hand-stamped on the sides.
