You are bidding on a great belt buckle at an incredible price! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo crafted by the artist Raymond Begay, out of genuine sterling silver, along with real Turquoise and Coral chip inlay. The inlay is gently set inside of an incredible display of silver work that forms a beautiful Buffalo and Arrow design, along with lovely Water Wave patterns. In Native American beliefs, the water waves design represents continuous life. The Buffalo is one of the most important animals to the people of the Plains and it is a great symbol to most Native Americans. The Plains Indians had developed life around the buffalo using it in many different ways. It was used for food, tools, shelter, warmth, and weaponry. To some, the Buffalo represents strength, stability, and prosperity. The stunning detail in this piece will be sure to draw plenty of attention! Belt buckle is stamped sterling and hallmarked by the artist.
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.
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 its appeal and beauty.
