Native American Turquoise Sterling Silver Concho Belt. Based on the belt's design and construction, I believe it to be Navajo. While it is hard to detetmine which mine the turquoise originated from, based solely on color and lack of matrix, it could be Bisbee/Kingman but unsure. While not hallmarked, conchos and buckle test 925 sterling.
To the best of my knowledge, this belt dates ca. Buckle measures approximately 2" by 1.5".
Each of the 14 conchos are set on leather with copper backing; each individual concho measures approximately 1.75" by 1". Leather belt, best described as a chocolate brown, measures approximately 36 long.
Total weight is 7.4 oz or 290 grams. Wear commiserate with age/use; overall, very good pre-owned condition. Piece will be carefully packed (and insured) to ensure a safe journey. Pieces such as this are an investment.
