DESCRIPTION:

Expect plenty of compliments while wearing this stunning belt buckle! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo crafted by artist Raymond Begay, out of genuine sterling silver, along with real Turquoise and Coral chip inlay. The inlay is gently set, while an incredible display of silver work can be seen forming a fabulous Kokopelli and other traditional designs. The Kokopelli is a common fertility symbol throughout the Southwest. In Native American beliefs, the Kokopelli visits various communities, seducing and impregnating the young women drawn to the tones of his flute playing. The stunning detail in this piece will be sure to draw plenty of attention! Belt buckle is stamped sterling and hallmarked by the artist. 

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.
