This lovely belt buckle is a work of art and has everything you could possibly want from a piece of Native American jewelry! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo overlay hand crafted by artist Rosco Scott out of genuine sterling silver. Overlay is a process that utilizes at least two layers of sterling silver. One layer forms the foundation, while the second is used to design the individual detailed overlay. In this belt buckle, the second layer forms unique Bear and Water Wave patterns that gives the piece a remarkable finish. In Native American beliefs, the bear symbolizes physical strength, leadership, and is known as the "first helper". In Native American beliefs, the water waves design represents continuous life. The belt buckle is stamped sterling and hallmarked by the artist.
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.
