Gist Silversmiths Introduces Sierra Shield

Gist Silversmiths Introduces Sierra Shield


Gist Silversmiths introduces Sierra Shield ...

Designed to extend the durability of electroplated buckles and accessories, this resinous material is applied through state of the art techniques to shield against the effects of chemicals, tarnishing and abrasion.  During recent years, the silversmith business has been dramatically impacted with 300 to 500% price increases in precious gold and silver metals; therefore, belt buckles are now more commonly crafted in non-precious and electroplated materials for affordability.  Gist has invested in this state-of-the-art technology to preserve the appearance and enhance the value of our electroplated and non-precious metal product lines, including the most popular Champions Minted Collection and Artisan PL Collection.  Like the great Sierra Mountains where we manufacture all our products, Sierra Shield will provide rugged protection to the beauty and craftsmanship of a Gist buckle!
