Unusual Indian handcrafted bolo tie with a domed shell base inlaid with natural turquoise, jet, and assorted shell at the top and bottom. In the center is a carved natural turquoise arrowhead flanked by two rectangular bezel set onyx stones. The arrowhead is bezel set at the bottom and must be additionally secured with glue. The shell base is secured with a handmade saw tooth bezel and the back plate is sterling silver. There is an unmarked Bennett style clip finding on the back to secure the black vinyl cord in place. The bolo is completed with handmade sterling silver tips with blue natural turquoise dangles. I have never seen another bolo quite like this elaborate masterpiece!
Very good quality and condition for this ca. 1970's bolo tie. There are a few nicks and crazing to the soft jet inlaid stones. There is a small nick on the BACK of the arrowhead near the tip. The back of the bolo is signed with a staggered "GA". I could not find out for sure who the maker is. Reasonable starting price.
