Family-operated since 1886, Comstock Heritage is one of America's oldest western silversmiths in business today. James Stegman, the current president, started as an apprentice silversmith at the age of 12. He worked his way up the ladder by learning every phase of the business, working in every department and mastering each process necessary to create a work of art. James has continued the practice of designing new products and updating the old traditions for today’s look.
Carrying on the techniques of the old west, each buckle is unique and handmade from start to finish. Beginning as a sheet of sterling silver and 14K or 18K gold, the buckle is cut from the sheet then details are hand-soldered and hand-engraved depending on the design. Comstock Heritage’s product line is quite extensive and features traditional western buckles, as well as, modern fashion buckles.
