This beautiful vintage Navajo belt has 9 clusters of variegated turquoise in sawtooth settings punctuated by silver beads and twisted silver rope. The clusters measure 2 & 7/8ths inch in diameter. Pictures are included for each cluster. The leather belt is 1 inch wide by 32 & 1/2 inches long. It weights 359 grams. You can see the hallmark on the back of the buckle: LMB (Larry Moses Begay). For many years my grandmother traveled to shows across the Southwest collecting coral, turquoise and lapis jewelry and belts. They were part of her signature look back when she used to go country line dancing at The Cowboy Palace. Most of these items have remained untouched in boxes since she broke her ankle 15-20 years ago. If you’re into Native American jewelry, you may want to keep tabs on me since her collection is extensive and she’s only beginning to part with it. NOTE: I don’t know how I missed this but there is a stone missing from one of the clusters. NOTE: Although this concho belt is not stamped “sterling” I took it to my local Joseph’s Jewelry store and they performed an acid test and confirmed that it is. The item “Turquoise and Sterling Silver Concho Belt signed by Larry Moses Begay” is in sale since Saturday, December 1, 2018. This item is in the category “Collectibles\Cultures & Ethnicities\Native American\ US\1935-Now\Jewelry”. The seller is “gregoryulrich” and is located in Stuart, Florida.
