This listing is for a rare mid-century Navajo belt buckle made by David Garcia. It is made of sterling silver, Kingman Turquoise, and a center inlay portion using Mother of Pearl and Mediterranean Coral. This handcrafted buckle is bursting with color and depth. A beautiful array of 10 natural Kingman stones circle around the outer edge. They are set in tall handmade bezels that pop off the top of the dark oxidized buckle. Each stone has just the right amount of matrixes to match up perfectly with its neighboring stone. They have strong vivid shades of blue and green along with heavy black and tan matrixes. Large silver droplets rest between each stone running along the outer edge. The center of the buckle features a tall raised bezel filled with a gorgeous slab of white mother of pearl. The bezel which holds the oval slab is in great condition being completely hand forged. At the center of the mother of pearl is a highly detailed inlaid cardinal using Mediterranean coral and onyx. This is truly stunning inlay work by Garcia. This design is rather common for other types of jewelry pieces, like cuff bracelets and pendants, however it is very rare to find this design featured on a belt buckle….. Its a very unique find and a must have for the avid collector of fine Native American jewelry. The swivel belt keeper and hook located on the back is completely handcrafted and in MINT condition. A rectangular plate is also placed on the back with the Artists name. A fantastic find for both men and women. Will make an excellent addition to any existing Native American jewelry collection or could be the perfect piece to start one.

Width (East to West) – 2-1/4. Height (North to South) – 2-5/8. Mother of pearl section measures – 1-9/16 tall by 1-1/4 wide. Total number of stones – 10 Turquoise Stones. Stones measure – Stones range in size from 1/4 in width to over a 1/2 in width. Belt keeper measures – The inside width is 1-11/16 so they buckle will accommodate a belt up to 1-5/8 wide.

Herbert Taylor Sterling Silver Belt Buckle. Fits a 1 wide belt. Old pawn/estate american indian silver. The silver weighs a little over 100 grams. The buckle shows moderate signs of wear, with several somewhat deep scuffs/scrapes. I’m including the leather belt that this came with, but I have separated the belt from the buckle for photography, plus the leather belt is in fair condition at best, and is probably due for replacement or refurbishing. I attempted to treat it with some products I have on hand, but it did little to improve the appearance. The belt measures 40 from the farthest notch to the buckle. The belt has various cracks, stains, and even a dent of sorts. The snaps that hold the buckle in place don’t hold very firmly. I’ll let the craftwork and design of the buckle speak for itself. The artist, Herbert Taylor, was a master at his craft, and an award-winning silversmith. He died in 1996 at the young age of 36. Because his life was cut short, his pieces are quite rare. Taylor has won many awards- at places such as the Santa Fe Indian Market, the Heard Museum, and the Gallup Ceremonial- including Best of Show.

This listing is for a vintage Zuni hand made belt buckle, made of solid sterling silver and turquoise. This is a very rare belt buckle being made with TONS of petite point turquoise stones. It was made with a very thick and hearty slab of silver that measures 3 wide by 2 tall. Every single stone is in MINT condition. The Artist arranged the stones in alternating rows, where they lay horizontal and vertical. With their bright blue/green color hues and very light matrixes, they pop out of their sawtooth bezels ever so slightly. Below the stones the silver has tarnished and created a lovely patina making the stones pop even more. Its a simple design yet, looks like it was very tedious work. To finish the design the outer edge of the buckle was adorned with silver droplets between each row of stones. This buckle is older dating back to the later mid-century (70s-80s). Although its a vintage piece it has a very modernized look. This is a very special piece that is not only a work of Art but also a tangible asset. Add this buckle to your existing Native American jewelry collection or let it be the first piece to the one youve always wanted. Cherish and enjoy this gorgeous buckle today….. And pass it down to a loved one in the future. Weight – 81.5 Grams. Width (East to West) – 3. Height (North to South) – 2. Belt keeper inside width – 1-1/2. Total number of stones – 140 total stones, 8 rows of horizontal stones with 10 each and 3 rows of vertical stones with 20 each. Stones measure – 1/4 long, the stones and their bezels sit on top of the buckle at 1/8 high. Stamped sterling – NO, tested and verified. Signed by Artist – NO. Mid to later mid century, late 1960s – early 1980s. I treat every item as if it were my own. Extra bubble wrap and packing materials are used to ensure a safe arrival to its new owner.

The world has had a fascination for turquoise for over 7000 years. The oldest known example of any jewelry was a carved turquoise and gold bracelet found on the mummy of an Egyptian queen. In the American Southwest, Native Americans have mined turquoise since prehistoric times. Many legends surround turquoise, it is believed to bring good fortune and health. While turquoise was once used as currency in the American Southwest, it has been treasured as an adornment throughout the centuries worldwide. The evolution of turquoise jewelry from its appeal as southwestern, Native American or tourist jewelry, to one of the most coveted gems set in designer jewelry worldwide. Coveted, that is, only if you are talking about true, genuine turquoise. And so our turquoise love story continues. While the demand for turquoise has increased dramatically, the supply of genuine turquoise is limited. Turquoise jewelry has been worn for both fashion and cultural significance throughout history. Many American Indian tribes believe the stone harbors mystical powers. According to some beliefs, turquoise can keep bad spirits away and some believe it can ward off bad spirits, encourage communication, creativity and spiritual bonding. The Navajo believe that a piece of Turquoise is actually a piece of the sky that has fallen to Earth, and therefore that it connects the earth to the sky. It is also one of the most important holy stones in their belief system for protection of the body and soul. Sterling silver handcrafted belt buckles are typically detailed and unique in design. Just outside of the small mining town of Globe, Arizona, is the highly variable and prolific Sleeping Beauty mine. With little to no visible matrix, Sleeping Beauty turquoise has a clear, light turquoise appearance that is extremely popular worldwide. Though the Sleeping Beauty mine once produced a vast amount of turquoise, the majority extracted from this region today is from the tailing piles. Since much of the modern Sleeping Beauty turquoise jewelry is enhanced, and therefore cheaper, the small, high-grade yield from this mine is among the most coveted by collectors and artists.

Jacob Halloo – Zuni. Sterling Silver, Turquoise, Onyx, Coral, and Mother of Pearl. Belt Buckle and Bolo Tie Set! 3.0″ X 2.0″ (will accept a belt of up to 1.5). 48.9 grams = 1.57 Troy ounces. Bolo Tie w/ New Black Braided Leather Bolo Cord and Fancy Tips. 1.76″ X 1.4″. Fancy Sterling Tips 2.25 length. Lanyard length is 20″ X 2 = 40″. 33.0 grams = 1.06 Troy ounces. (all measurement are approximate). Zuni Jacob “Jake” Halloo Belt Buckle and Bolo Tie Set. This wonderful Belt Buckle and Bolo Tie Set was made by the famous and talented Zuni artist Jake Halloo. He became active in producing jewelry from the 1950’s. Husband of Lola Pinto Halloo, he is also the father of Jake Livingston and uncle of Dennis Edaakie. His daughter Rolanda makes jewelry of a similar theme, but hers have distinctive bird beaks that are radically bent downwards and backwards at the tips of the bird beaks. You may not be surprised to hear that Lolita Natachu and Nancy Laconsello also picked up some stylistic themes from their teacher Jake. This wild bird is variously described as a Gooney Bird (as in Albatross), Hopi Bird, and even as a Thunderbird. I’m not entirely comfortable with any of those descriptions. I’m a big fan of Joan Miro, the Spanish artist. Miro died in 1983. I like to imagine that Jake Halloo liked Miro’s work. These old pieces are Not stamped on the reverse side of both the Buckle and Bolo pendant with a hallmark. The Fancy tips are also Sterling Silver. I have found no defects like cracked or loose shells, noticeable scratches, etc. In the Belt, Bolo pendant, or the Bolo Tips. I have found no imperfections in the Mother of Pearl shells or stones. The inlay is tight and masterful! Please, look at the pictures carefully. The braided black leather bolo cord is New and it still a bit stiff. The Sterling Silver all has a heavy tarnish… The bolo tie clasp helps us date the set as being from this period and perhaps about half a century old. By the way, I’ve traded hundreds of bolos with Bennett clasps and this is the first one that I can remember seeing with this smaller manufacturers name stamped on the clasp. This set has been not been abused and is in quite remarkable condition for an old Buckle and Bolo set. I believe that you will be pleased! It is quite rare, and it is rare for me to say that. The workmanship is exceptional and fine. The Buckle and Bolo feature a stone on stone inlay (overlay-inlay) pattern of several Stone, Coral, and Shell color varieties. The Buckle and Bolo are each built up on a Sterling Silver base that has numerous pieces of these shells and stones set tightly into the intricate Sterling Silver cut out top frame form. I love the colors chosen and the composition of the shells, coral, and stone that creates such a radiant and intriguing pattern. You might be willing to bet that the surface has offset angles. Funny, it looks that way, but it is in fact extremely smooth when you run your finger across the slightly convex surface of the front. This is a highly desirable and magical museum quality jewelry set. This amazing Belt Buckle and Bolo Tie is full of character and may be immediately recognized by many people as quality collectible Native jewelry. When you take a look at the pictures, please inspect the bolo pendant and buckle carefully for the fine detail in both design and execution.
