This buckle is made by combining hand polished Onyx and Lapis gems inlaid into 925 silver. The glow of the black Onyx answers the sea-deep blue and sparkling gold spots of the Lapis gem.
A selection of AEG lab certified semi-precious stones are crimped into our signature 925 silver turning a belt into the piece of menswear jewelry you deserve. The creative team sets its eyes on the age-old traditions and aesthetics of the Zuni people to ignite Silver Ostrich silver smithery. Zuni people’s craft is colorful and organic as an answer to the mineral austerity of the wild decor surrounding them. Their homeland is indeed located in today's US South-West, a land of red steep cliffs and barren stretches only disturbed by a few lakes where Zuni gods reside.
Hence 6 colors combinaisons have been chosen to adorn those half rounded buckles and the associated frames and straps, whose designs refer to another episode of the region heritage. Hand-polished Onyx, Malachite, Turquoise and Lapis gems are carved into a mosaic of geometric semi-precious tiles. This unsettled symmetry, extended into engraved lines on the silver, highlights the stone’s Earth-drawn patterns and colors.
Your Sierra Collection buckle comes with an AIG certificate asserting the stones’ sheer quality, virtuoso stone-cutting and specific gravity as well as the silver purity. The choice of the belt’s leather remains yours, spanning from the classic Italian suede and calfskin to other more refined fine leathers we provide on demand.
We are at your disposal to give you the best advice.
A Cartier red and an English green crocodile-embossed boxes are also provided with the set for your long haul and domestic escapes.
Height of the buckle: 2 cm ( like Versailles Collection), the leather will have a shrinkage.
