This lovely belt buckle is a work of art and has everything you could possibly want from a piece of Southwestern jewelry! This is a gorgeous piece of jewelry that is crafted out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. The belt buckle has a total of FOURTEEN stones that are delicately set in silver bezel, while silver beads, twisted silver, stamped patterns and an imprinted eagle design can be seen highlighting for a remarkable finish. In some beliefs, the eagle is the master of the sky; he is considered to be a carrier of prayers. Many of the Indian Nations admire the eagle for bravery and special connections to the creator. 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.
