Native American Belt Buckles

Native American Belt Buckles

Belt buckles, signature staples for rugged rodeo kings and cowboys, have a somewhat complex and incredibly colorful past.  Originally designed as sturdy replacements for suspenders in the early 19th century, belt buckles were primarily used as clasps for leather belts that came in handy for ranch hands and rangers.  However, even though they began using them as pure functionality, they have flourished into a very popular American fad. Today, belt buckles have managed to infiltrate into the style of all kinds of cultures, ages and even emerging trends. You will love our beautiful Native American Belt Buckles!

Belt buckles have managed to amass a more widespread cultural appeal, and there is no doubting their direct tie to the rugged, rustic cowboy style. Belt buckles have been used as glimmering trophies for a rodeo riders, used to emphasize dominance, power, tremendous strength, and most importantly, victory in the rodeo arena.

Now Alltribes, America’s premier carrier for creative- classic and eye-catching Southwest-inspired jewelry, is proud to announce the release of our  collection of sturdy, statement-making Native American Belt Buckles for the man with both a cowboy demeanor and sense of style.

When we think of and picture belt buckles, we think of ranch hands, cowboys, with a ruggedness in the description.  But while belt buckles remain a signature accessory for any cowboy or cowgirl, buckles have begun to seamlessly transcend those stereotypical barriers that used to define them several decades ago.

Today, belt buckles are clasped on the belts of the young and old and men and women. They’re being seen adorned on individuals residing on both ranches and in sky-high urban sprawls.  For women, the personal statement emitted from wearing a belt buckle tends to fall into a number of descriptive categories. From an edgy, rocker-style silver plate decorated with tiny jewels, to an earthy, rustic buckle adorned with flowers, each piece accentuates a particular personality and style.

And of course, belt buckles have seamlessly transitioned onto women’s belts in the country/ranch scene. And in terms of age, buckles seem to show no boundaries or limitations. From the very youngest trendsetters rocking a pair of sturdy jeans, to some of the old western cowboys from decades past, belt buckles continue to make a highly personal statement of self.  However, the trend has (and continues to have) a deep and rich past with cowboys and rodeo kings. In a way, belt buckles have become a cowboy-inspired, cultural phenomenon, popularized by the likes of rugged riders like John Wayne in his early Western films.   As a western wear staple, belt buckles show no signs of disappearing off of the market, or finding their way out of the rodeo arena and in an authentic American style. So long as there’s a job to get done, there’s a sturdy hand – and sturdy belt buckle – to help.

The traditional silver belt buckles tend to be the most common form of a buckle.  However, Alltribes can customize, size and use any stone to make your special piece!  Turquoise is also quite popular and chosen by many, as it is a soothing stone with vibrant color.  It is said to bestow a number of spiritual qualities within the wearer.  Then again, any gemstone can be used to also create your masterpiece.
