This bolo tie came in a huge box of vintage jewelry from a friend that used to have his own antique store. The box has been in storage for over 20 years, so I know it's at least that old. He wasn't able to offer any information about where it came from or anything else.
There are no markings on this piece at all. I do think that it is a handmade piece. As far as I can tell, it is Sterling silver.
The biggest question I suppose, is what is this rock cluster in the center?? Pictures do not do it any justice. They are a very deep emerald green and appear to be one solid piece, encased with Sterling feathers. I have considered taking it to a jeweler, but have never gotten around to it.
The rock cluster is roughly 1 1/2"x 1 1/4" and the bottom Sterling tassles are 2 1/2".
Has anyone seen a bolo like this? Any insight would be appreciated! I posted this in the Native American fine jewelry section, as that was my best guess.
