Silver, one of the worlds most beautiful metals. A precious commodity that has always been valuable as an item for trade. The history of America is full of towns that grew and died as a result of the silver fever. Silver is just as valuable today. What sight is more breathtaking than that of a horse wearing a beautiful array of silver conchas, ear plates, corner plates, bridle buckles, halter plates, name plate and horn cap. This is one of the sheer joys of a parade , a sparkling, glittering silver covered horse and rider. The rider might also have silver conchas on his shirt and chaps, a silver band on his hat, and silver trim on his gloves. But whether his outfit is very fancy or rather simple, he will wear, almost without exception, a silver buckle. And, often, that silver buckle will have been created by expert craftsmen of Comstock Heritage, America’s oldest western silversmiths. I have the honor of designing with these fine men and their third generation owner to create some wonderful timeless, classic beauty's.
