This belt buckle is inspired by the shapes found in a horses snaffle bit. The backplate and parts are all handmade with heavy gauge sterling silver. This is not a cast silver belt buckle! Each piece of the cut, shaped, soldered and polished! The snaffle bit emblem or letters are made from heavy gauge brass wire and the entire buckle is given a special "diamond" satin finish. Note that this buckle is best used with a belt that has snaps or you can have a shoe repair person attach it to any belt. Measurements of the buckle are as follows: 1 5/8" from left to right at the widest point, 1 3/4" from top to bottom, 1/8" thick not including the hook on the back side. With the hook, the total thickness is about 1/2". The belt is not for sale but for your reference, it is 1 3/4" wide.
Custom belts with your initials can be designed in any size, with different metals and various shapes can also be done (circle, square or rectangle). I can also make a belt buckle with turquoise or a stone of your choice. Additional charges may apply for customization.
