The Tommy Jackson Turquoise Belt Buckle. This wonderful Bet Buckle was made by the famous Navajo smith Tommy Jackson. His work can be found in countless museums and galleries.
It can also be found in all the major Native Jewelry catalogs and reference books. A few are listed below. He has traded with me and even done quick repairs on a buckle I happened to be wearing several years ago that had a stone loose in its bezel. I like to chat with him about various artists, stamps, turquoise, etc.
He loves people and loves to make amazing jewelry. This is stamp signed with the hallmark "JACKSON" and is guaranteed to be Sterling Silver and authentic. There are no defects like cracked or loose stones, scratches, etc. The Belt Buckle is in excellent condition and may have been used very little.
As a matter of fact, I just had my jeweler buff it and it looks new... I believe you will be pleased! W hen you take a look at the pictures, please inspect the the Gem quality Stone.
It is quite colorful in light! Your friends may compliment you and your taste in Navajo Jewelry. Reccomended Reference Books - This artist is referenced if there is a page # shown below.
