A mosaic of multi-colored turquoise gems brighten up this vintage Navajo sterling silver belt buckle and keeper ranger set. The stones vary in color from bright blue, to blue-green, to green with natural inclusions. The petite buckle and slides have a very dark patina, which contrasts nicely with the bright stones. They could be polished shinier, but I left it in its original aged state.
1 1/2 x 1 1/4 inches at widest and will fit belts up to 1/2 inch wide. The three pieces tested as sterling silver (no hallmarks). This set is in good vintage condition for its age, but has some rustic qualities to it. There are expected fine scratches, dark patina and irregularities to the keepers' forms. It is definitely an attractive old looking set, overall.This set could be made into a very unique and interesting hat band. Please see photos for condition and below for detailed measurements below.
