About Us

hard wonLocated in High River, in the heart of southern Alberta’s ranch country, Olson Silver Company has grown from a hobby of Jim Olson’s in the early 1960’s into the largest belt buckle manufacturing shop in Canada. All products are built in the shop with very little reliance on outside suppliers. This enables us the highest of quality control and on time delivery for orders. Olson belt buckles are some of the most sought after trophies at many rodeos. From small town amateur events to CPRA Rodeos, and all levels in between.

All of Olson Silver Company’s stock belt buckles are solid nickel silver with jeweler’s bronze overlays (some utilize copper as well) and are standard materials for all of our Stock buckles. We do not plate any of our products Solderingas we feel it is inferior to solid material. Over time the plating wears off, ruining the appearance of the buckle as well as the many environmental hazards that are involved in plating. Stock belt buckles are customizable by utilizing your lettering, brand, initials, company logos, or a variety of figures as well as stones (on applicable styles). All routed lettering must be done prior to assembling the belt buckle. The lettering cannot be added later.

Olson Silver Company’s handmade western belt buckles have set the standard for Canadian made belt buckles for many years. Our handmade western belt buckles can be fabricated from a combination of materials from sterling silver and gold to nickel silver and jeweler’s bronze. This allows us to accommodate most budgets. Choose from one of our standard shapes and sizes or design your own from scratch. Our handmade western belt buckles are limited only by one’s imagination.
