Historically, belts were often worn long, with the extra length looped and hanging down. This demonstrated wealth - as the wearer could afford to wear a longer belt than he needed. Additionally, belts were also embellished to further demonstrate the wearer's wealth and status.

Tips, or strap ends, were often added to the ends of the belt. You can find versions of this type of decoration in Celtic, Roman, Saxon, Viking, and Medieval cultures.

Our strap ends fit nicely on a 1.5 inch wide belt. They are 1.24 inches (33mm) wide and 1.75 (45mm) tall. In bronze or sterling silver

They are attached to the belt by means of two bendable tabs. (You will need to punch a pair of holes in the leather, and then bend the tabs over with a hammer. When doing this, make sure the front of the tip is protected with something soft like a piece of leather, especially if you are working on a hard surface, like the face of an anvil!)

Due to the hand-crafted nature of our items, orders may take 4-6 weeks to deliver. Please be patient. You are going to love it when it arrives!
