DESCRIPTION: This lovely belt buckle will definitely attract plenty of attention! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Thomas Yazzie, out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. The belt buckle has a total of THREE stones that are delicately set in hand cut bezel settings, while beautiful silver work creates an eagle and scalloped leaf designs. Mini silver beads, twisted silver, and stamped patterns finish the belt buckle perfectly. In Native American 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. The belt buckle is stamped .925 (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.
