This buckle is a wise investment and a super-looking piece to wear and enjoy! One of a kind work of art!
We are pleased to offer this brand new sterling silver & turquoise belt buckle made by world famous Navajo silversmith Darryl Becenti. We were shocked and saddened to hear of Darryl's untimely death in late March of this year. When one of our suppliers of Darryl's jewelry opened back up after having been closed since late March, we purchased as much of Darryl's jewelry as we could.
The buckle is set with an oval piece of natural Number 8 turquoise. This dramatic buckle is covered with complex repousse work and extraordinary hand stamped patterns and has an antique satin finish. The buckle features subtle scalloped edges. A gorgeous belt buckle for your Native American Collection!
The buckle measures 3 inches long by 2-1/4 inches high and will fit a belt width of up to 1-1/4 inch wide. The buckle weighs 54.5 grams. Perfect condition. It is stamped sterling and has Darryl Becenti's hallmark. Certificate of Authenticity included and gift box included.
