Extra large museum quality hollow Stormy Mountain Turquoise Native American made belt buckle. This great extra large men’s belt buckle is was fabricated hollow so that it has a dome to the silver which makes it three dimensional. This is a technique that can only be accomplished by a very skilled master silversmith. The top sheet of silver that makes the dome is textured like sandstone and has wonderful stamped appliqué scallops surrounding its perimeter. This is then surrounded by a rope or cable design, then a raised saw pattern silver design. In the center of the buckle is a large freeform cut RARE natural Stormy Mountain Turquoise cabochon that is the finest of blue colors with golden brown matrix. This stone is elevated on a silver pedestal and then bezel set in a handmade saw work bezel. This is set in a shadow box. Everything about this buckle is custom. No detail was overlooked, except the hallmark. This piece was obviously made for show and museum purposes. This is one of the finest buckles you will ever see.
