The Quarry buckle is the only piece of its kind, made entirely from hand-wrought sterling silver and four raw diamond slices. The face consists of floral scrollwork with heavy oxidization in some places, which nicely complements the earthy tones of the raw diamonds set in thick silver bezels. There is a pleasing harmony of asymmetrical balance between the sprawling floral design and the raw cut diamond slices. A lightly darkened sterling silver backdrop subtly sets off the silver scrollwork and ruddy diamonds, but the overall effect is still quite understated.

For this buckle, James felt like playing with a new angle on the longtime theme of Old World scrollwork; the specific inspiration for this piece came from seeing a museum display of traditional Celtic artwork. The 14k gold scrolls were inlaid using the uncommon and exceedingly difficult technique of recessing, which involves cutting the shape of the inlay into the sterling silver face precisely, then securing the fully formed gold inlay in place. Not many smiths attempt this process because there is absolutely no margin of error, but when done correctly (as it was here) it creates a very cool effect—the gold scrolls appear 3-dimensional because of their smooth, lustrous contrast against the rough, dark sterling silver backdrop, but the buckle’s face is actually flat.
Returning to nature for inspiration, the artists at Comstock Heritage have created the Preston Brambles. From heavy, fourteen-karat gold filigree, they have fashioned yellow, rose and green gold brambles and thorns to decorate the face. As a border they chose fourteen-karat yellow gold to form a nice wide band. With the long edges of the rectangular buckled bowed out, this buckle has the look of more volume with the bulk. To finish it all off, the top and bottom platforms also have some intricate engravings. This is a beautiful buckle with a lot of detail and complexity. Fits all 1.25-inch belt straps.

Fits all 1.5 inch belt straps.
