Beautiful vintage 70's-80's Navajo twenty (20) piece turquoise sunburst decorated concho belt. The belt consists of nine (9) oval conchos with beautiful and rare oval cut high polished Bisbee turquoise stones sporting light to brilliant blue with reddish brown matrix. Each stone is set into a saw tooth bezel with sunburst rays shooting off in each of the four directional paths along with sunrise stamping around the stone between the sun rays. The silversmith also applies a scallop cut to the outer rim of the sun rays. It also has an identical buckle that's slightly larger than the oval conchos. The artist creates ten (10) decorative stamped "butterfly" conchos with sun rays shooting out to the top and bottom along with larger sunrise stamping on the two sides. The oval conchos have two (2) copper belt slides attached to the back whereas the butterflies have one (1) copper slide. The buckle has a stationary belt hoop and a long shepherds type hook for the belt pin set making it where the belt could also be used as a hatband by removing conchos and trimming the black leather belt.

The belt buckle measures 1 1/4" by 2 3/8" across with each of the turquoise conchos measuring 1" by 2" across. Each butterfly concho measures 7/8" by 5/8" across. They are all attached to a soft black leather belt that's 5/8" wide and 40 1/2" long. It has previous buckle set holes at 35", 36 1/4", 37 1/2" and 38 3/4". The complete belt weighs 135.2 grams (4.77 oz or 4.35 ozt) and is unsigned sterling silver. The rare Bisbee turquoise raises the price considerably. Beautiful collector's concho belt with rare Bisbee turquoise!  $1379.95
