This is a beautiful concha (concho) belt, well-made and nicely proportioned. The handwork is evident when you examine each one closely. The buckle clearly matches the conchas and compliments them well in design.

This vintage concha belt was made post World War II. It is Navajo and is hand-made with quality work. The style of this belt is that of an Navajo concho belt made in the late 19th century. The belt is made out of heavy-gauge silver and thus has nice weight.
