Beautiful and unusual Concho belt featuring stones of Turquoise, Coral, Moonstone, Lapis, Amber, Opal, and Mexican Amethyst, each set into its own individual bezel. Each Concho is signed by the artist Lilly Gomez, an accomplished jeweler and artist who selected each stone, perfectly polished it, and set it into a beautiful design making this a stunning piece! Each Sterling Concho is linked together with sterling to the next Concho and the belt is very heavy. All stones are perfectly intact with no missing stones, which speaks well of the artist's ability to set stones. It is truly a stunning piece of art!
The belt features beautiful patina so care is needed when cleaning to ensure the patina remains intact.
Although the previous owner said her mother bought the belt in Santa Fe many years ago, we believe the belt is of vintage Mexican origin due to the Mexican Amethyst used.
Each Concho measures 3 1/4 inches in diameter, or approximately 45 mm each. The belt measures 38 inches long and has an hook enclosure that enables it to fit a variety of waist sizes.
