Gigantic Vintage Navajo Turquoise Cluster Sterling Silver Concho Belt, 2 Lbs
This is an extremely well made mega size stand out in your face exquisite concho belt with the finest quality all natural turquoise stones each hand cut in a cluster pattern. The concho belt is all sterling silver and the concho belt is signed on the sterling silver back side of the buckle with the initials JM, sterling. The weight of the concho belt is almost 2 pounds and the leather itself is not heavy at all. So mostly all the weight is in the conchos itself. The concho fasteners on the back side for the belt to slide through are made of copper as many are and being that each concho is heavy to begin with, it puts less weight on the belt. The exact weight is a whopping (1 pound 14.5 ounces). The belt length is: 48 inches long. There are 3 holes in the belt starting at 46, 47and 48 but the leather strap can accommodate holes from 34 (without interfering with the conchos). You can make 9 more holes in the belt strap starting at 34 to 45. The concho belt size is 34 – 48 Therefore, the belt can be worn in any length from 34 inches to 48 inches which is where the last hole stops. The belt buckle is: 5 6/8 inches cross wise which takes in the widest spot. Each concho is: 3 7/8 inch x 3 3/8 inch. Each turquoise stone is too numerous to count. All the turquoise is matching and is natural which means that all the turquoise was cut from the same mega stone.. A one in a lifetime concho belt.. Please note: SEE LAST PHOTO #12, one of the stones was loose and had it professionally put back in its setting. I TOOK A PHOTO OF IT OUT OF THE SETTING TO SHOW THE HIGH QUALITY OF THE 100% ALL NATURAL TURQUOISE HAND CUT AND EACH PIECE OF TURQUOISE IS SO THICK THAT THERE IS NO UNDER FILLER AT ALL TO RAISE UP THE TURQUOISE, JUST THICK NATURAL TURQUOISE INTO A DEEP BEZEL… The item “Gigantic Vintage Navajo Turquoise Cluster Sterling Silver Concho Belt, 2 Lbs” is in sale since Monday, July 16, 2018.
