The blue turquoise is called Kingman from Kingman Arizona. and has a roughappearanceof a true nugget with the black matrix. The coral is a unique shape that has been polished down and the other three are in excellent condition. A This is a buckle that will grab attention! It certainly caught our eye and neither of us have ever seen something like this before. A true rarity. The sand casting items are hardly ever accomplished today and the old items do not pop up often because ittrulyis a collection item. This fantastic buckle has a dark tarnish/patina that can come off if one would like with a polishing solution. The Overall condition is great! It looks like the scorpion is missing part of its arm but it is not. This is the design. Maybe it went through a crazy battle with another scorpion and it won.

You won't bedisappointedwith this buckle once its yours and you can try it on. One needs to get a great belt to show this one off!
Native American jewelry unfortunately is being melted by the tons as
the price of silver goes higher. This ring is already unique, pretty soon it
will be even rarer due to its age and condition and uniqueness!
Markings:The buckle is etched with theinitialof B, it has not been stamped .925 or sterling but this is not uncommon with Native American jewelry. However as stated below it is also guaranteed as
sterling silver .925. Please read below as how we test all of our items in a
non-harmful way with our XRF-Spectrometer gun.
This is a kick butt belt buckle and Native American item! Immaculate
silver work with beautiful stone(s) If you were to buy a new sterling item that is not near this quality from a shop or store one would spend
more money AND you may never even see anything like it! Again, Native American jewelry is disappearing often and fast! Not
much more out there due from melting, broken, destroyed or simply lost with
time. It is getting increasingly harder to find quality items that have stood
the test of time. Perfect for a collector, and not to mention it
will gain in monetary value over the years! Please don't hesitate to offer on
this one of a kind item. You may never see one quite like it again I can promise that!
According to the U.S. Department of the Interior
laws I cannot state 100% whether a piece of Native American jewelry is in fact
Native American unless the piece is signed by the artist of a recognized tribe.
That being the case most “Native American” jewelry is unsigned, however it is
at your discretion that you decide to buy a piece of jewelry based on the
information that I have given and your own personal opinion. I will give my
personal opinion with years of dealing in these items, however as I said above
I cannot say for sure according to the U.S. Department of the Interior. Message
me if you have any questions about this in particular and I will help you as
best as I can.
XRF-Spectrometer Gun:All of our jewelry is
guaranteed to be sterling silver through an X-Ray Florescent-Spectrometer test
that reads the alloys of the metal without damaging the piece like nasty acid
and scratch tests. This tells us the purity of many precious metals and the
alloy of an unknown metal or element. Rest assured that we are 100% positive
that you are receiving the real deal!

About Us:We are two young professionals "Alexis"
& "Chris". We met in a photography class in college. We both go
to college and sell New, Vintage, & Antique jewelry on as a full time
job. We are not your typical college aged kids, we know the value of a dollar
and what customer service truly means, we will always go out of our way to make
our customers as happy as possible. We started out in the jewelry business
knowing individuals who were in the smelting business. As we watched these
smelters melting new, vintage, & antique 100+ year old jewelry for the
metal value, we cringed!! We thought, there must be a way to save this special
and once in a lifetime type of jewelry instead of melting these wonderful
items.Well then the bright idea of selling these beautiful items smacked
us in the face!We started buying small items such as rings, bracelets and
necklaces from these smelters and selling these items to wonderful people who
would appreciate them and cherish them for a lifetime!
After starting out small
time, we started to go to Antique shops, estate sales, estate buy outs,
smelters, sales, coin shows, or just about anywhere possible we could get
our hands on these wonderful and beautiful jewelry items! We started to set up
at trade shows and other events to sell to people, we love the interaction with
people! To work more with our school schedule we eventually phased out the
trade show atmosphere and started selling jewelry on ! I'm glad we did, you
can get just as much interaction with people over the internet as you can face
to face. We love all of our customers and love the quick messages anybody likes
to send our way! After starting to sell jewelry on we started our business
called Aumia Gold & Silver Jewelry And Collectibles LLC, "Aumia"
Is Golden Lady in Latin. We try to offer a variety of jewelry from Rings,
Necklaces, Pendants, Brooch's, Gold & Silver. We also offer Native American
Jewelry, Art Deco Jewelry, Victorian Jewelry, Antique Chinese Jewelry and much
much more! We try to post a mix of each variety every day Mon-Fri.
We found our niche! The success on has made this into our
full time job. Because of our great loyal customers and new ones every day you
are helping us provide an education in Genetics, Biology and soon to be
business. We also donate large amounts of money to Rotary. We both heavily
believe in helping others and creating wonderful new opportunities
internationally and domestically. Aumia has provided us our future and love
towards our passion. We can’t see ourselves doing anything else. It is
something new every day. I combine my hobby of photography, and meeting new
people. We treat people with theutmostrespect and customer service
is our main priority. There are always goofy stories about us but too much for
an listing. We hope we have given you some insight to who we are and our
passion for this industry. Check our page for more fun information!
