This vintage NA Navajo Concho Belt features 10 sterling silver oval conchos which are stamped and chased in a sun-ray design, with 8mm x 6mm turquoise stones in the center of each, set in serrated bezels. The conchos measure 1 1/4” W x 2” L. Test 925 sterling silver.
There are 11 butterfly form spacers between each of the conchos. The spacers measure 5/8” W x 1 1/2”L. The buckle is the mirror image of the conchos only larger and measures 1 5/8” W x 2 1/4” L. The buckle is the “tab-hook” design, which hooks into the belt hole.
The conchos fit a 1” wide belt or strap. This type of concho belt is comfortable to wear, not being over-sized as to pinch when one is moving about, such as bending at the waist or sitting down.
The advantage of 3rd phase style of conchos and spacers is the copper slides which are soldered to the back of each piece, making it easy to remove each piece and slide them on to a customized belt of your own to fit exactly the way you want them to fit.
This strap measures 50” from tip to tip. The strap can be cut down to fit any size waist or if left the way it is will fit up to a 48-50 in. waist. We do not polish our sterling silver jewelry but leave that up to the buyer whether or not to preserve the beautiful patina. The conchos will take a high polish.
