A handsome, classic buckle that is gender-neutral, able to be enjoyed by men and women, alike.
The mark is plain to see, but we don’t remember who the artist was, nor can we find a matching hallmark.
Nevertheless, the buckle speaks for itself: beautifully proportioned, hand-stamped with a traditional feather design reaching out to the four corners of the world, and centered with a first-class, natural Kingman turquoise.
The lovely oval form is slightly convex, so the polished silver shines like a mirror.
The restrained stamp work shows up with discreet, but graceful, impact, while the brilliant blue turquoise seems to radiate light.
Timeless, made with skill and matching artistry, this buckle is a wonderful example of Navajo jewelry.
