1960s Zuni Sterling Buckle, Beautiful Turquoise Mountain Stone

  • 1960s Zuni Sterling Buckle, Beautiful Turquoise Mountain Stone
  • This beautiful Zuni belt buckle is all about the water web Turquoise Mountain 2″ stone.
  • A rectangular piece of sterling silver has been stamped with circles like a tiny nail set.
  • It is overlaid into flowing curled shapes with 1/8″ flat silver wire.
  • Slightly concave, the buckle is neatly edged with triangular caronated wire.
  • Sterling silver drops with a single stamp adorn the top and bottom of the buckle.
  • A twisted silver wire outlines the straight bezel enclosing the stone.
  • The back is stamped G K and has a simple older style fixed bar and hook.
  • It is likely that this is the work of an older silversmith favoring the older backing and caronated wire.
  • The stone has an old crack towards one edge that has been stabilized.
  • The buckle measures 3 1/2″ x 2 3/4″.
