SOLD Purchased from a private collection is this beautiful Zuni cluster turquoise concho belt with
12 conchos plus one buckle in link format so this becomes adjustable for the wearer as you connect
the buckle to best fitting link depending what you are wearing. Buckle measures 1 7/8"H x 2 1/8"W
and is slightly larger than all other concho's which each measure 1 5/8"W x 1 7/8"W. End to end belt
measures 36". The largest this belt can currently be at its current configuration is 36". Every since the
value of silver and gold have risen everyone wants to know the weight of our items, so the belt
weighs 264.9 grams. As I was told by professional jewelers in their business it is difficult to really
accurately define the value of the turquoise or the value of the sterling silver when they are both connected
as in a pieces of jewelry, such as this or any item we carry. I was told by professionals in the business,
that unless you separate the turquoise from the silver them weigh them separately the weight of the
item doesn't mean all that much, as far as determining an items "value". Then there is the "artistic beauty"
of each item. Once you know the weight of an item, as a layman,what monetary value then do you place
on any item then scientifically? That's why they call this "art" as it is not a science. What price is "beauty"?
If by wearing this piece... if it makes you feel like a million dollars when you wear it then its a piece of
jewelry no matter what the price-its worth it! Over the course of your life... you are realistically looking
at pennies a day to own this belt....or any of our items for that matter... Do the math and you will agree...
Your worth it and if you don't buy this...someone else will as everything sells here... and there is something
for everyone...several somethings as a matter of fact... Our items are like our customers...each very individualistic...
Our items are all one of a kind...once this sells there will be no others... Bring out the individualism, in you!
You too are one of a kind! To make this concho belt longer one could always add sterling silver additional
rings as shown that link conchos together. They could be added to the last link. The other option is that you
can add one or more additional rings to all other existing rings. Gorgeous turquoise with both blue and green tones.
Since turquoise is very porous the stones each will absorb oils differently each time you wear it. This gives
the turquoise different colorations ranging from blue to green. Unsigned but looks similar to Alice Quam's work.
You know that if this was signed "Alice Quam,"you would be paying alot more than $2900....Now you have
the opportunity to "Buy it now" and make this belt yours today!
Thanks for looking!
