Conchos come from the Mexican vaquero tradition and serve both a decorative and a utilitarian role on western saddles. Eventually they were used in accessories, as was this beautifully detailed piece from a belt.
It is so much fun to wear a piece of history on your finger! An authentic vintage mid-century Shift Key from a typewriter will be sure to start many conversations! The wide band I use makes this a very comfortable adjustable ring to wear.
These old overall buttons are also call “advertising buttons” because of the practice of manufacturers putting their logos on the buttons. These were popular in 1900’s-1935. The button with the train design would have been used on railroad worker’s clothing. I set it on top of a vintage silver button to add a frame to set off this cool button.
Such a dramatic statement…a simple pearl in a whopping 1 1/4” diameter will end up being your go to ring! This pearl button picks up whatever color you put it with and always looks just right. I find that I grab my pearl button ring more often then not, and it always gets compliments.
This early 1900’s metal & celluloid piece is half of a buckle and exquisite! The antiqued gold toned filigree band is adjustable. This buckle is over 100 years old and has some surface cracks, but still deserves to be admired.
