This stunning Ranger set is a true embodiment of Navajo craftsmanship, meticulously handcrafted by skilled silversmith Leonard Nez. This exquisite set includes a belt buckle adorned with three stunning Kingman turquoise gemstones, each a masterpiece of nature's artistry while intricate sterling silver overlay provides a gorgeous backdrop.


During the mid-1800s, the Texas Rangers designed the Ranger Belt, specifically crafted to accommodate their substantial sidearms. This belt was ingeniously designed to suit the holster of the Colt Walker, a heavy and sizeable firearm that demanded a wider belt for secure carriage.


With a history spanning over a millennium, the Kingman Turquoise Mine is one of America's earliest and most prolific sources of turquoise. Discovered by ancient indigenous peoples over 1000 years ago, Kingman turquoise boasts an enchanting sky-blue hue, offering a spectrum of blue variations. The mine’s legacy is intertwined with the history of the American Southwest and has served as the largest turquoise supplier in the jewelry trade since the late nineteenth century.
