The silver has been tested as a low grade silver, it has a gold border, around the outer edge, that has been tested as a low grade gold, the glass and enamel eye of a peacock, has been attributed to Piel Freres, that worked in France from 1855 – 1925 they won at an exhibition for a similar style buckle, with exact enamel and glass eye.
