are the buckles made of?
not find a more beautiful (and affordable) buckle than those from BuckleBuilder.com,
where we feature Montana Silversmiths’ legendary Montana Armor™ finish. The undisputed
leader throughout the competitive world for 35 years, known as the most rugged
and gorgeous finish available at realistic prices. Montana Armor™ starts with
a brass base and then “locks” silver and gold to its surface. Solid sterling silver
is also available; ask us for a quote. See below for information about German
Silver trophy buckles.
Why are German silver buckles less expensive?
German Silver is another name for nickel, the same material as the coin in your
pocket. Nickel is less expensive than silver or brass. You can rest assured that,
even though our solid German silver trophy buckles are less expensive, they are
truly beautiful and rugged nevertheless. We highly recommend German silver trophy
buckles for the budget-conscious event planner.
Can I add or subtract ribbons from a buckle?
Sorry, the engraveable ribbons are not changeable.
engrave my buckles after I have received them?
Engraving is one of the first things in the buckle creation process. Because of
the unique nature of the Montana Armor finish, post-production engraving
is not recommended.
How many characters
can a buckle display?
Each buckle's order page shows the maximum number of characters and spaces that
may be engraved on each engraveable ribbon. These limits may not be exceeded.
you take checks?
checks from your organization or company. Select "Organization Check or Money
Order" in our shopping cart's credit card menu.
