Showcase your organization with this large oval award buckle. The buckle sports three different overlapping edges. The first edge is a silver rope design that encircles the entire award buckle. After that is a thin strip of painted black. This gives way to the final outside edge of gold rope. The face of the buckle is carved in brilliant silver that is covered in highly detailed hand tooled etched work. Two large golden ribbons are situated on top and bottom that offer ample room for hand engraved letters in black. The center space for a gold motif of your choice contains a large oval with a black painted background surrounded by another inner border of golden beads.
Our Award buckles designs are created and developed by our expert design team. From the size and shape, to the placement of the words, to the arrangement of the specific metals, every part of this buckle is deliberately pieced together to the smallest detail.

Change the background color. Rearrange the placement of the text. Our expert sales team will work hand in hand with you to create an award that is unique to you.
Our custom buckles are handmade. Our expert silversmiths utilize cutting edge technology, the finest metals, and skills developed and passed down through the centuries. The shape of the buckle is first carved out of the base metal. Exercising painstaking and exacting care each letter and floral design is precisely cut by hand. Once all the detail is complete, each piece is hand welded onto the base. The buckle is then sent to be plated with precious metals. The buckle is dipped in a bath of pure silver, gold, and copper. An electrical current is run through the bath and the precious metals are fused to the buckle in an ionic bond. The buckle is then cleaned and checked again for errors or impurities. The background is then painted, stones are set, and the whole piece is polished to a brilliant luster. Finally the buckle is coated by a micro thin protective finish that ensures the buckle will never tarnish and shine for a lifetime.
