Belt, Concho, Turquoise Vintage, Mid-Century, 981
“Statement” is an understatement -- this belt could stop traffic!
How stunning is this mid-century vintage concho belt? The buckle is a shiny sterling silver rectangle with repoussé accents and twist wire detailing, centered with a free-form turquoise nugget in a simple bezel. Each of the conchos on the classic leather strap are sterling silver ovals with twist wire accents and smaller free-form turquoise stones. It’s classic and timeless and absolutely beautiful.
