Your Story, Your Way - Explore customized pieces that reflect your individuality
At Bluegrass Engraving, we understand that every individual is unique, and we believe your accessories should reflect your one-of-a-kind style and personality. That's why we offer a wide range of customization options to ensure that your belt buckle is a reflection of your taste and preferences. Explore our customization options below.
Our pricing reflects the value we place on craftsmanship and the time this takes, and we are confident that our dedication to producing the best finished product we can sets us apart. While there may be cheaper alternatives out there, it often sacrifices quality and service.
We are pleased to offer our buckles at prices that remain reasonable, yet provide quality customer service, value for your dollar, and a beautiful finished product. We extend an invitation to you to experience the difference that dedication to these values can make.
It's Your Canvas
We believe that style is a canvas for self-expression, and your accessories should be a reflection of your unique personality. That's why we take pride in offering an expansive selection of buckle shapes that span the spectrum, from sleek and sophisticated to bold and curvaceous. With our diverse range of buckle shapes, you have the freedom to choose the vibe that resonates with you and complements your style perfectly.
Sleek and Chic: Elevate Your Elegance
If your style leans towards the refined and understated, our collection includes sleek buckle shapes that exude sophistication. From minimalist geometric lines to gentle slopes , these buckles are perfect for those who appreciate clean lines and timeless design. They seamlessly blend with formal attire and add a touch of understated elegance to any ensemble.
Curvy and Charismatic: Embrace Bold Expression
For those who prefer to make a statement, our selection also includes curvier buckle shapes that embody charisma and confidence. From flamboyant curves to distinctive Western-inspired designs, these buckles are a testament to individuality and flair. They effortlessly infuse your outfit with personality, turning heads wherever you go.
Make Your Selection:
On every buckle listing page, there are example pictures of that buckle style (segmented buckle examples on the listing page for Build Your Segmented Ranger Buckle, Plain Jane buckles shown on the Build Your Plain Jane Ranger Buckle page, etc) and a picture showing the choices of buckle shape silhouettes and their corresponding names. Another picture will list the approximate size of each buckle (height and width), in sizes to fit a 1.5" width belt and a 1" belt.
Once you've decided on the buckle shape you want and the size opening it needs to fit your belt, simply choose it by name and your belt width (1.5" or 1"), from the drop-down box labeled Choose Your Buckle Shape. If your belt requires a different size, just Contact us to discuss.

Our steel buckles feature metal overlays soldered on top of the steel. The buckle sides or "arms" that extend along the top and bottom of the buckle can be overlaid with your metal of choice (see our Metal Selection Guide for detailed information on each type of metal. (*Plain Jane style buckles have no metal overlay on the buckle sides).
The metal for your personalizations (brand, initials, logo, etc) is chosen separately so you're not confined to the same metal choice you make for the buckle sides. The metal you pick for your personalizations will be the same for both the buckle and keeper (i.e. if your brand is copper on the buckle, your initials will be copper on the keeper, unless you request them to be different).
If you add a belt tip to your order, you will select the metal overlay you prefer from the box provided- you can choose to match either the buckle sides or your personalizations (if you're choosing contrasting metals).

We offer engraving options that allow you to add scrollwork or basketweave designs around your brand or other personalization on the buckle. This not only enhances the visual appeal of your buckle but also adds character that sets it apart.
Did you know that at Bluegrass Engraving, we specialize in a distinct style of engraving known as American Scroll? This style of engraving is not just limited to belt buckles; you can also find it adorning firearms, adding elegance and artistry. What sets scrollwork apart is the meticulous attention to detail and adherence to specific rules and patterns. While it might not be immediately apparent to an untrained eye, each scroll must flow in a precise direction, following established guidelines that ensure the overall harmony of the design. This attention to the art of engraving transforms every piece we create, showcasing the precision and craftsmanship that define our work at Bluegrass Engraving.
Scrollwork Elegance: Timeless and Refined
If you're drawn to classic aesthetics, scrollwork engraving is the perfect choice. These intricate, flowing patterns gracefully frame your brand, adding an element of luxury and refinement to your buckle. Scrollwork complements a wide range of styles and occasions, making it a versatile choice. As described above, scrollwork has specific rules of design, and the engraving around your brand will be designed to fit your particular brand or design and placed at the engraver's discretion.
Basketweave Boldness: Distinctive and Eye-Catching
For those who prefer a bolder look, our basketweave engraving option is a striking choice. The geometric precision of the basketweave design adds a captivating texture and depth to your buckle. The unique character of basketweave is perfect for those who appreciate bold expressions of individuality.

Rectangular or Bourbon Barrel-Shaped Keeper: Choose the shape that suits your style.
Rectangular Keeper: This classic and timeless shape offers a sleek and minimalist appearance. It aligns well with a more traditional style, giving your buckle a classic look. Rectangular keepers are versatile and suitable for various occasions, effortlessly blending with both casual and dressy attire. They are often preferred for a clean and polished appearance.
Bourbon Barrel-Shaped Keeper: In contrast, the barrel-shaped keeper brings a touch of uniqueness and character to your buckle. This shape adds subtle curves and a more organic feel to the accessory. Bourbon barrel-shaped keepers are favored by those looking to infuse a bit of personality into their buckle. They work exceptionally well with Western or rugged styles, offering a hint of the Old West charm. This option allows you to break away from convention and make a statement.
When choosing between these shapes, consider the overall style you want to achieve. Rectangular keepers offer versatility and sophistication, while barrel-shaped keepers introduce a dash of individuality and authenticity to your buckle. The choice ultimately depends on your personal preference and the vibe you want to convey.
With these options, you have the freedom to create a belt keeper that perfectly complements your style and preferences. Make your selections from the boxes provided. For specific personalization details, such as initials, font preferences, or other motifs for the keeper such as a state silhouette, antler, or other item, please provide the specifics in the Other Information box.
