Danish term or phrase: livbånd med sølvtipper
"Til de fine festdragter, kirkedragter og brudedragter bærer man rundt om livet et sort livbånd med et sølvspænde. Til brudedragten derimod vikler man et stort fløjlsbånd rundt om livet. I enderne af disse bånd er der isyet sølvtipper."

Ja, det er fra Fanø.

The closest I can come is: wedding sash belt with silver tips or ends made of silver.

It sounds awkward to my ears. What say you?
