This is an exceptional belt buckle by renowned Navajo Silversmith, Orville Tsinnie from Shiprock on the Navajo Reservation. It is an older piece and features three very large Natural Royston Turquiose stones set in heavy Sterling Silver. The Natural Royston Turquoise stones are fabulous in their color and matrix. Fits a leather belt up to 1 1/2" wide. Very substantial hand fabricated Sterling Silver unlike today's buckles. Hallmarked "Orville Tsinnie, Shiprock, N.M." along with his Shiprock stamp. The central Natural Royston Turquiose stone has a very thin crack through the matrix but does not detract or devalue this amazing collector's piece.
