Vintage Sterling Silver and Turquoise Concho Hat Band/Necklace
This is a stunning vintage concho belt, hat band, or a necklace, made of gorgeous sterling silver and accented with genuine turquoise.
It is SO little, we would wear it as a necklace and it looks fabulous! It wears flat against the chest so none would be the wiser.
It is most likely a hat band, but we think it is too pretty to put on a hat and be put away.
In Spanish, the word "concho" means shell; hence the name given to the 1960s and '70s-era "concho" belts with shell shaped panels.
As you can see, this piece would make a VERY VERY tiny belt, BUT an absolutely gorgeous necklace.
Comprised of 14 panels, each measuring approximately an inch long, this necklace makes a truly bold statement.
Each of the sterling silver panels features a beautiful hand-hammered pattern of geometric and starry shapes while a prong-set turquoise cabochon adds a brilliant flash of color at the center.
The panels are separated by large sterling loops which allows them to articulate and move beautifully.
The necklace (or belt for those of you with Scarlet O'Hara-waists) joins with a simple loop and hook clasp.
The panel with the loop component features a small stamped mark on the obverse side which reads "Sterling".
The piece has been professionally tested to ensure the purity of the silver.
Though the piece shows some slight oxidization and other areas of light wear, it remains in great vintage condition overall.
This is THE piece for you fearless fashionistas with a flair for the Bohemian!
