Rare metallic gold-tone waist chain charm belt custom-made for Prince during the LoveSexy era, featuring a chain-link belt with seven stylized symbolic charms dangling from the front, including a dove, a cross, a peace sign, Prince's male/female symbol, a guitar, a flower, and a heart. In fine condition. Prince can be seen wearing this style of charm belt in numerous images, as it was a look he wore often during the LoveSexy tour—on and off stage, in his personal life, and in photo shoots and performances. While we do not know how many of these waist chains were created for Prince, the number was certainly small as they were custom-made, not mass-produced by a retailer. This stunning example originates from the collection of a PRN Productions employee who worked as a seamstress and tailor in the Paisley Park wardrobe department from 1986-1993.
According to another PRN wardrobe employee, this is one of four known charm belts worn by Prince during the LoveSexy era, all custom made for Prince—not mass produced, with slight variations in chain style, color, and charm order. They were part of his LoveSexy concert wardrobe, and he also wore them off stage in his private life.
