The stone in this piece is by far unique! Personally, I love unique stones and bolo ties! This wonderful piece came out of an estate located in MI. The stone in this piece appears to be a type of bloodstone, but it is not the usual solid green and red droplets of "blood". Instead the main stone appears to be white with a ton of red droplets of "blood". I know there are different kinds of bloodstones, but I could not find anything similar to this particular piece. This piece has a modernist design with the ball bead design in each corner. This slide is marked "STERLING" for the silver content and has been tested and verified as solid sterling silver except for the slide hardware. The tips are not sterling silver. The bolo tie cord material reminds me of a really thick shoe lace or cordage. This piece is hand signed "ESE" and that tells me this was probably a studio made piece. Again, the stone in this bolo slide makes this piece very unique!
