2.Pull buckle/ Clip buckle
Clip buckle is bigger than pin buckle. Clip buckles could be plain and simple or elegant in shape.

About buckle materials
Other than the belt material, belt buckle is an important factor in forming price difference.
The common materials for a belt buckle are zinc alloy, brass and stainless steel.
The most common material is zinc alloy. One of the reasons for its popularity is that it's cheap, and, it's easy to mold allowing for a wide ranging designs.
Stainless steel is durable, and it tends to be expensive. The material's features are not easy to fade and deform. It's corrosion resistant.
Brass buckle features good quality just through polishing and texture. It’s simple. Belt buckles made by pure brass material is pricey. So, some buckles are plated to make the color look like pure brass. But, touching it feels not as good as real brass. We should be able to distinguish real brass when we are purchasing it.
