Beautiful vintage Navajo fourteen piece turquoise teardrop linked concho belt. Each concho consists of twenty one (21) hand cut and polished turquoise teardrops for a total of two hundred ninety four (294) stones to complete the belt. The artist connects each cluster concho to the next with a circular sterling silver ring which has been soldered closed. Each concho consists of two (2) teardrops in center set back to back. The artist encircles them with twisted wire, repeating silver strip hoops, and again with twisted wire. They finish the concho with nineteen (19) teardrops that are set on the outer rim in a satellite configuration along with silver drops separating each stone. All mounted to a scorched blackened silver base. All of the conchos have wire bales on both sides to hold the rings except the buckle which has a wire clip on one end.

The complete belt measures 36" long end to end with each concho measuring 1 3/4" across by 1 1/8" tall. Each connecting circular ring measures 13/16" diameter. It will fit any waist under 36" whereas you can connect the buckle to any of the rings and let the slack hang freely. It weighs 126 grams (4.44 ounces or 4.05 troy ounces) and is hand signed Nez - Sterling on the buckle. I'll attribute the belt to Nathanial and Rosemary Nez, but not certain. They are known to create Zuni style cluster jewelry. Beautiful vintage satellite cluster linked concho belt!  $978.95
