DESCRIPTION:

We bring to you this adorable belt buckle! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Wilbert Muskett Sr., out of genuine sterling silver, along with a real Turquoise stone and a real Coral. A total of TWO stones are gently placed in a shadow box bezel setting, while hand cut silver work creates a beautiful bear paw design. Mini silver beads, twisted silver, and stamped designs can be seen highlighting the buckle for a brilliant finish. In Native American beliefs, the bear paw is usually considered a way to call for the power of the animal spirit, or as an indication of the presence of the spirit. It is a symbol that represents inner strength. The belt buckle is stamped sterling and hallmarked. 

Turquoise is the birthstone of December. It is believed that turquoise tends to bring good fortune, strength and helps overcome illness. Turquoise got its name from the Levantine traders called Turks who brought the stone to Europe from Persia via Turkey centuries ago. Native Americans have prized turquoise since the time of the Aztecs, who mined it in New Mexico. The natural variations that occur in turquoise are part of their appeal and beauty.

Corals are known to be very soothing and very protective. Coral is of an organic origin; it is the skeletal remains of marine animals called Coral Polyps. Colonies of these tiny creatures build branching structures as they grow, gradually forming reefs and atolls.
