This is a very exquisite belt buckle that must not be overlooked! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Wilbur Muskett, out of genuine sterling silver, along with real Turquoise and Coral stones. A total of TWO stones are gently set in a hand cut shadow box bezel settings, while placed in a lovely bear paw design. A hand cut bear paw pattern, twisted silver, and stamped patterns add style and complete the pendant perfectly. 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 is 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.
