There is almost no tarnish because my jeweler just professionally polished the Buckle. It is probably 30-40 years old. It is thick and heavy.
The stone is sure worth a close examination and is a pleasure to view. The deep repousse work is equally impressive when you consider the height of the relief work in Sterling Silver and it is also worth examining in the magnified pictures.If you are looking for an distinctive large Navajo belt buckle with a dramatic natural spiderweb Turquoise stone, I believe it will please you.. As the Navajo say, "Walk in Beauty". I thank You and look forward to sharing a good experience! "AMERICAN INDIAN JEWELRY I" - Gregory Schaaf. "AMERICAN INDIAN JEWELRY II: A-L".
