VTG Navajo Sterling Silver and Turquoise Concho Belt Hallmarked GREAT!!!
- Source: eBay
Wonderful vintage Navajo concho belt with black leather belt. This belt consists of 7 conchos and one buckle which is the same size as the 7 conchos. Each has a shadow box set natural turquoise nugget stone in beautiful blue green shades and black matrix. The nuggets are large, averaging 1" long or more. It is hallmarked with an unknown (to me) mark, an apparent conjoined J and e. Not sure of maker. It is unsigned but tests as sterling. Each concho is crimped around the edges and has the inset shadowbox middle to hold the nugget. There are unique silver applied design elements around each stone. Stones are plain high bezel set and are all solid and in great shape. Single copper stay holds the conchos nice and tight. It is a nice size and weight, just right. Excellent vintage and collectable condition.Length of the belt from tip of buckle to end is: 43" Width of leather belt is 1" Buckle/Conchos are: 3 1/8" wide X 2 1/4" Weight: 42 grams each concho plus the buckle is a little more for about 340 grams alone. Total wt with leather: 387 gms Please see my other listings. Please check back regularly as I will be downsizing my 35 plus year collection with many offerings. This is a hobby of love.
