Solid vintage 30’s-40’s Navajo turquoise diamond eye decorative stamped concho belt buckle. The concho buckle displays different levels starting with the outer rim of scallop cut and decorative stamping around the scallop edge along with repeating “S” shaped hooks around the complete concho. Inside that stamping is a raised oval with another level displaying a diamond shape. The artist has set a green turquoise stone in center of the diamond eye which the stone itself is cut into a diamond shape. Along the outer rim of the diamond eye the silversmith has applied repeat sunrise-full sun stampwork. Very detailed and precise stampwork throughout! The artist finishes the belt buckle by attaching a solid angled “C” wire to connect the belt and a solid set pin which has been bent and angled with the anchored end hammered flat and soldered into place.

The concho buckle measures 2” by 2 5/8” across and weighs 39.1 grams (1.38 oz or 1.26 ozt). Made out of coin silver (90% silver) and most likely from old silver dimes, quarters, and fifty cent pieces melted down. The concho buckle will accommodate a belt up to 1 1/8” wide. Unfortunately the turquoise has a chip, but it doesn’t take away from the beautiful stampwork and craftsmanship. Rare collectable vintage 30’s-40’s Navajo decorative stamped concho buckle! $377.95
