"Gold Mountain's sales and service are really second to none. Recently, I purchased an engraved buckle from them and there was some trouble (a lettering problem- not theirs, but on my end) with it. I didn't know I could get the problem solved but talked with Lanny of Gold Mtn. anyhow. He immediately took care of the problem! The buckle lettering could not be fixed so he had a brand new buckle engraved for me without any hesitation (or additional cost). Seriously, do you know of any other company who would go to that length to make the customer happy? I sure don' t. This is one great shop and great people."
     — Tim Lucas|Cleveland, Ohio

"I could not have asked for or expected a better experience then I had with Gold Mountain Trading. I ordered a money clip with an initial for a friend. I called and left a message and promptly received a call back. I was concerned about getting it on time. The gentleman that called me back walked me through the ordering process step by step then recommended the best shipping method without extra cost to get to me on time.

Well It came 2 days earlier then expected and in a beautiful velvet box. The Money Clip was just as beautiful as described and my friend was thrilled when he saw the wonderful scrolling and craftsmanship. So Yes the whole experience of shopping with Gold Mountain trading was a pure delight. I would recommend them to any of my friends and family."
     — Patricia Hansen|Lauderhill, Florida

"I received the buckle and I have to say that it is outstanding. The craftsmanship is unsurpassed. My only regret is that I didn't think about making buckles for my dad years ago. He's going to be thrilled. Thanks for everything.


I wanted you to know that my dad received the belt buckle you guys made and wept. It has not left his body. He said of the dozens of buckles he owns, none come close to the pure beauty of the ones you guys made. I will probably be reaching out to you again for his 81st but until then, I wanted you to know what am impact your beautiful work had on an 80 year old Boston Cowboy. "

"I received the Spur Buckle yesterday and I have to say that it's very nice and unique too, as it's one of a kind I have never seen before.Thank you.
As for the Custom Buckle that I'd received earlier, I got lots of positive comments from colleagues and friends, who are really surprised when told that it was ordered online from the manufacturer in the USA. For your information Greg, here wearing cowboy buckles is always in style even though apart from the cast brass buckle from the Philippines, Thailand and the jeans brand (such as Levi's, Lee & Wrangler) promotion buckles, a good US made buckles are rarely available in the local fashion shops.
Last but not least, thank you once again for the excellent services rendered during our online dealings these past few months. I will be back for more purchases in the near future. Thanks a lot."

"My mother was born in South Dakota. In our family every woman has a black hills gold ring. I ordered my mother a mothers ring and my husband ordered his mother a mother's ring right before mother's day. The rings came on time and they were both so beautiful and unique. My mother cried when she realized it was not only a beautiful black hills gold ring but a mother's ring. She has been showing it off every where that she goes. Both of our mothers expressed that it was a priceless gift. One that they had always wanted and waited for but never wanted to ask for. Thank you so much for making this mother's day unforgettable! We appreciate how easy and fast the ordering was as well. I had some questions and I got fast e-mail and phone call replys. I am so thankful to have found your website. I will highly recommend you."

Hi, Greg.
I just received the belt buckle I ordered and I wanted to let you all know that it came out better than I had hoped. My brother and I wanted to get our dad something really special for his 60th birthday, and you and your team truly went above and beyond in helping us put together something we know he'll love. You all have a great service here and I wish you all the best success. Thanks. Tiffany

I received your "Build-a Buckle" several days before it was supposed to arrive. My Husband loves it! He is the only one in the world to have that particular belt buckle, and our grandchildren think that is so "neat". It has his father's brand, which he inherited, and it is really a beautiful piece. I WILL be ordering from you again. I submitted a design based on the sample, and everything was right where I wanted it. Thank you so much!

I have had one of [their] watches for several years and absolutely feel naked without it. I only hope that my friend that this watch goes to feels the same way that I do.... When the item was out of stock within their establishment, they called me and offered to forward the order to the manufacturer themselves. Great customer service! Thank you Gold Mountain Trading!

Dear Greg,

Howdy my fellow cowboy. I just received my belt buckle in the mail today and I am very happy to tell you that it is everything I expected and more. I want to thank you and the Gold Mountain Trading for your hospitality and amazing cooperation. This is the first time I have ordered anything over the internet. I am not going to lie to you, at first I was a little weary of the whole ordeal, but now I know I can trust at least one company.

Thanks again. Till next time....Ride 'em Cowboy

"Received the U.S. Marshal Badge today, am very impressed with your speedy and efficient service. Could not believe it arrived at my door here in the UK so quickly, what can I say, THANK YOU SO MUCH. I was most impressed, a service like you provide should be shouted from the rooftops. I have placed many orders from the USA, and most are very good, often better than here in the UK, but you are by far the best. And the badge, excellent quality, very well made."

I will be sure to NOT ware this one when I'm out with the horses or exercising. Its just to beautiful to get sweaty and dirty. I'll have to get myself a cheap one for that.

     — Hal | Tokyo, Japan

"The beautiful belt buckle arrived yesterday. It was everything I hoped it would be. I gave it to my friend Keith who had the "lone Indian" buckle, made much the same way from silver and brass. He promised that buckle to his dad when he could find the "mule train" buckle. His dad passed away last year and he placed the "lone Indian" buckle in the casket with him. He was very excited to finally see the "mule train" buckle.

Two dreams were fulfilled. Thanks again."
