"If you Google search chipped turquoise you are going to find any number of articles explaining how you can repair your chipped turquoise jewelry (disappointingly, the best advise appears to be send it back to the jeweler and have them replace the stone). I want to be very clear; we chip turquoise specifically for this buckle. We think it adds a visual complexity to our classic three layer buckle, which makes this buckle stand out. It also requires that one of our craftsmen design each buckle so the turquoise chips fit perfectly into each space, placing each chip into the appropriate spot with tweezers, constantly changing the layout until each unique buckle looks right.
Even though we have been doing it for over 30 years, we know that Johnson & Held wasn't the first to create turquoise belt buckles. With this buckle, however, we believe we are perfecting the art. To understand the complexity of putting this buckle together you have to realize that the metal was hand cut (meaning each buckle is a little different), it is assembled by hand, and each turquoise chip cut, organized and placed by hand (all of these steps occur here in Colorado). Needless to say by the time it reaches you, it has spent too many hours in our craftsmen'?s hands. I should also note, given how I started this description, Johnson and Held provides a lifetime warranty, if one of these stones falls out, just send it back, we will fix it and send it back to you."
