This bold and distinct custom buckle is sure to impress anyone who sees it. The face of this beautiful cast buckle is covered in shining, highly detailed, tooled polished silver. Two ornate curving copper ribbons are set on the top and bottom and can be hand engraved with black lettering. In the center is a apace for a large copper motif of your choice that best represents the award and your organization. The entire squared oval custom buckle is framed by three distinct and separate borders. The first border consists of an arrangement of branching florals that weave and flow around the face of the buckle. The middle border is a narrow sunken band that has a black painted background. The final outer edge of alternating raised flat silver band and eight groups of three silver beads.
This custom buckle is made from a die cast. They start by pouring the base metal into the cast. Once is hardens the artists go over the buckle and clean up the details. They then weld on the ribbons and motif and. Once all the lettering has been hand engraved onto the ribbons, and the buckle has been examined for quality and accuracy, it is sent to be plated with sterling silver, and copper. This involves placing the buckle in a bath of gold, silver, 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 will then be cleaned and checked for accuracy and impurities. A micro thin layer of coating is then applied to prevent tarnishing. Finally the whole piece is ready to be shipped off to our customers.
Lone Star Silversmith is committed to offering the finest awards at the best price. We wanted to offer an award for those customers who don’t want to spend a lot, but we also refuse to put our name on an award that isn’t of the highest quality. That is why we have begun to offer our line of cast buckles. This way we can offer the amazing amounts of detail in our handmade buckles, but for a lower price. As they are not hand-made and come from a set cast, we are not able to allow the same amount of customization we do in our other buckles. We still won’t charge you to customize the motif or per letter, but we cannot add ribbons or stones to the cast buckles.
