Turquoise clusters are a traditional style that always make a statement. Jack Weekoty has done fabulous work in his life and this belt and buckle is one of those great pieces. The black floral tooled leather belt is the perfect pair to the eye-catching buckle. A large cluster of petite point turquoise stones which are accented with sterling silver rope and bar details creating a gorgeous statement. A belt like this would be a wonderful addition to any collection.
