Belt, A Vintage, Concho, 3rd Phase Revival, Turquoise, Sterling Silver, 696

Size Guide
Quick History on Third Phase Concho Belts: In the early 1900s turquoise rough from Colorado and Nevada mines became abundant and silversmiths quickly adapted the sky stone into their jewelry. Starting in 1910, the introduction of the vertical butterflies between the conchos first appeared and was soon followed by linked concho belts in the 1920s.

Double D Ranch is pleased to offer this Third Phase Revival Concho belt.  Though not from the early 1900’s this belt is part of a revival seen in the 1970s.  Hand wrought in sterling silver and set with turquoise stones, this belt features six oval conchos positioned between seven butterfly spacers. A domed rectangular buckle features traditional stamp work and stones.

This belt is lightweight and smaller in scale.

  • Many of the jewelry items we sell are antique, vintage, and/or pre-owned. We acquire these pieces from dealers in New Mexico, Arizona, and Nevada, who work exclusively with Native American jewelry and art. That means they had a life before we found them, and they may show evidence of that previous life; signs of wear, dents, scratches, oxidation, broken stones, etc. We strive to be accurate and transparent in our descriptions of these pieces.

  • Jewelry items are not photographed to scale. We’re not trying to be tricky, our clothing items aren’t photographed to scale either (imagine how large that catalog would be!). Please check the description for the item’s dimensions and feel free to email us with any questions.

  • We are not gemologists. We choose pieces based on their overall aesthetic and how well they accessorize the Double D Ranch collection. Due to the high quality of laboratory-made stones and the influx of fake “Native American” jewelry from the Middle East, we rely heavily on our vetted suppliers to maintain a level of confidence in the quality of stones, provenance, and authenticity of each piece. We try our best to accurately describe the stones in our jewelry items but cannot absolutely guarantee them.

  • We celebrate aging. In ourselves, and in our jewelry. We want the true age of the piece to be represented, so we do not perform any type of cleaning or polishing. If the item is oxidized when we acquire it, that is precisely how you will receive it.
