Engraved Sterling Silver Belt Buckles
Sterling silver hand engraved buckles- What a lost art and hard to find. Antique pieces are used to make a mold and then the buckles are cast in the lost wax process.
This is a one-at-a-time, hand crafted process. First the mold is filled with liquid wax and allowed to harden. Then the mold is opened, the wax extracted and hand finished to remove any blemishes. Then the wax is put into a canister surrounded by 'investment' molding material. When the perfect temperature is reached, the wax becomes liquid again and runs out of the mold (thereby being "lost") and the molten silver fills the space left by the wax.
When cool, the canister is opened and the investment removed, your buckle is left where the wax once stood. The hardware is soldered on and everything is hand polished to a mirror finish--ready for your monogram. Then the hand engraving process is done to finish each beautiful product. Each piece has a special story!!!
Each sterling silver buckle comes with a beautiful crocodile finished leather belt strip. You can choose either black or brown and your size. Sizes run 30- 40 and each belt has four holes for adjustments.
