This listing is for a beautiful Zuni hand made Sterling Silver, Sleeping Beauty Turquoise, Cluster Concho Belt. This belt is LOADED with conchos.... A black, 100% leather, belt is the foundation for a rounded rectangular buckle, 9 oval conchos, and 10 butterfly conchos. The buckle and conchos are made of solid sterling silver and beautiful hand carved Sleeping Beauty Turquoise stones.The buckle and conchos all have the same design with an outer edge border of silver raindrops and classic twisted rope between each row of stones. Each stone rests inside a sawtooth bezel and has been checked for cracks or inclusions... The leather belt is also original and in great vintage condition. It measures 1.5 inches wide where the conchos rest and gradually slims down where the holes are.
This thinner area of the belt is great for tucking under when worn (see photos of the belt being modeled). This work of Zuni Art is a masterpiece, one that will last for years and be handed down for generations. Ive not been able to find a similar piece that even begins to compare. Even though this is a vintage piece, its very current and could be worn casually on a daily basis.
Be the new owner of this stunning piece too cherish and enjoy now.... And hand down to loved ones in the future.
