Depends. If you want a custom made one they are not cheap. The one I had made was $250 and that was their lower priced buckle. There are a few companies who can do it for about a $100 but the buckles are not very nice they are not hand made and they look like what they are. Cheap.

I think Montana Silver Smiths make some really nice buckles, but they are also not a cheap buckle.

There is also this site, though I have no idea as to their price or quality.

I like their saddles but I don't know what their buckles are like.

If you get one, you'll have to let me know what the quality's like. I only have 1 belt buckle and would eventually like to get another made specially for me .

I will do that. I have a call in but no response yet. Will have to see what the price is. I need to call a few other places as well and get some prices.

My husband makes buckles and ours start at $250 for a pretty basic style. We offer price reductions for large orders for clubs/associations who do bulk orders and it makes each buckle around $200(for a basic model with some personalization).

If that is out of the question you could give out say, engraved pendants, money clips etc. We do that for a club in our area and it keeps the cost down for them. Perhaps you could find someone willing to do something like that?
