With their bright blue/green color hues and very light matrixes, they pop out of their sawtooth bezels ever so slightly. Below the stones the silver has tarnished and created a lovely patina making the stones pop even more. Its a simple design yet, looks like it was very tedious work. To finish the design the outer edge of the buckle was adorned with silver droplets between each row of stones.
This buckle is older dating back to the later mid-century (70s-80s). Although its a vintage piece it has a very modernized look. This is a very special piece that is not only a work of Art but also a tangible asset.
