The Oval Concho Pin is inspired by Navajo jewellery and is handmade from solid Sterling Silver. Along with parts of northeastern Arizona and southwestern Utah, large areas of New Mexico are part of the Navajo Nation and these Native American influences can be seen a lot of Red Rabbit Trading Co. pieces. The term concho comes from the Spanish word for shell, referencing the shape of the pin. The basic form of the concho was derived from hair ornaments of the Southern Plains Indians, called hair plates, which were were strung vertically on red trade cloth, horse hair, or leather.
The Concho pin is approximately 4cm in size and looks great pinned to your favourite denim jacket or cap.
