What a fantastic concho belt...and it's all heart! There are lots of them in handcrafted sterling silver. There are 14 conchos along the black leather belt...they measure 1 1/2 by 1 1/2 inches. The belt buckle heart is larger at 2 by 2 inches.
The buckle back is marked STERLING - D. This hallmark is attributed to Navajo silversmith Tom Denetso.
The belt measures 41.5 inches end to end. The belt weighs 260 grams or 9+ ounces. The leather is still soft and in excellent condition. The silver hearts are raised up in the center and are beautifully etched around the edges. The buckle has a couple of negligible bumps that you see when turned to the light but it's minimal. We haven't polished the hearts as some prefer the natural aged patina.
Overall, this is a unique and gorgeous Navajo sterling silver concho belt. Circa 1970s.
