This one of kind Bolo Tie has braided black leather and a sterling silver clasp featuring a Petrified Wood cabochon. The clasp has an antiqued patina, a rustic hammered texture around the stone, the outer edge has a polished hammered texture, and a mechanical clasp on the back. Sterling silver beaded tipped tie ends add the finishing touch.
Even when its colors are dark and earthy, petrified wood catches your eye. The cell structures visible in cross section are eerily intimate. The wood grain is so convincing. And the bark! Your fingers assure you it was once a tree even though it’s obviously not one now. This particular cabochon came from a piece of petrified wood that I mined, slabbed, cut, and polished. So I guess you can call this “farm to table” jewelry.
You say you’d love to have a Bolo Tie but aren’t sure how to wear one? The traditional way to wear a Bolo Tie is to dress it up with a suit and collared shirt, just swap the necktie for a Bolo. Go business casual with a suit jacket or blazer, dark denim jeans, and collared shirt with the top button undone and wear the Bolo clasp loosened to the third button. Or, swap the blazer for a leather or denim jacket, keeping the collared shirt unbuttoned at the top and the Bolo clasp loosened so it sits around the 3rd button of your shirt and pair it with dark indigo or black jeans and cowboy or similar western heeled boots for a mix of contemporary style. There is no right or wrong way to wear a Bolo Tie as long as you wear it with confidence!
