Most of our Homecoming Collection pieces is decorated with a stunning piece of antique Bulgarian jewelry - belt buckle. Belt buckles are one of the most exquisite, striking and feminine ornaments of the national costume. They were a sign of social standing, a betrothal gift and and were even attributed magical protective properties. We use only authentic buckles, not modern-day replicas.
