This magnificent and traditional coral belt buckle represents the finest of Navajo craftsmanship! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Julia Slinkey, out of genuine sterling silver and real Corals. A total of FIFTEEN corals are delicately placed in hand cut bezel, while mini silver beads accent in between. Stamped designs can be seen adding style and completing the buckle for a fabulous finish. The buckle is stamped sterling and hallmarked.
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.
