Hi, I’m looking to identify and appraise (if appropriate) this concho belt. It has 14 conchos including the buckle piece. No clear stamp on back.
The leather is very worn. It has been in the family for a minute. Thank you in advance.
Now to see if I can get the pics uploaded
Welcome! Sorry I have no info to add. Hopefully others will join in. Really beautiful belt.
It is a classic Navajo concho belt. It can be hard to determine the age, but would guess this is maybe 1980s-90s. I always look at the bezel, and think of this being newer because of the height. Lots of the old pieces seem to have a low bezel cut by the silversmith, this size appears to be silver supply sourced. Also, the turquoise appears to be enhanced and has a symmetrical cut that makes me feel like it is newer. It appears to be a light silver gauge, would imagine you would find this in a gallery for around $750 - $900. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you! This is so helpful!
