Bolo, Multi Stone, Inlay, Kachina, Vintage, 778

Size Guide
The tall Shalako kachina is the courier or messenger of Rain God and he stands at 10 feet tall.

While this bolo isn’t 10 feet tall it is big by bolo standards and it is outstanding as far as Southwest inlay work goes.

Crafted by lapidary artists, Ronnie and Olivia Calabaza, this magnificent piece features their signature style of raised inlay.  Finely cut pieces of turquoise, coral, mother of pearl, and onyx are set in a heavy sterling silver frame with scalloped edges and silver raindrops.  This piece is very textural and a fine example of raised inlay work.

This bolo is hallmarked ROC, Zuni NM.  This helps date this piece to1978-1986. All work by the Calabaza’s after this date is marked individually by either Ronnie or Olivia.

Olivia Calabaza (Zuni). Olivia Calabaza shared the stamp with her husband Ronnie Calabaza. Now goes by Olivia Panteah.

Mark:ROC ZUNI NM (until mid-1980s)

PRODUCT DISCLAIMERS

INDIAN ARTS & CRAFTS ACT DISCLAIMER

In the absence of a specific assertion or certification to the contrary, Double D Ranch does not warrant, represent, or suggest that any particular item or product which is sold or offered for sale by Double D Ranch in any forum or venue of sale is created or produced by any Indian or Indian Tribe, is an Indian product, or was created by any Indian arts and crafts organization as such terms are defined by the laws of the United States, or the laws of any other jurisdiction, including without limitation, the Indian Arts and Crafts Act and rules set forth by the Indian Arts and Crafts Board.

Double D Ranch supports the goals of the Indian Arts and Crafts Act and the Indian Arts and Crafts Board to prevent fraudulent advertisement, support truth-in-advertising, and prohibit misrepresentation in the marketing of Indian arts and crafts products within the United States.


VINTAGE & OLD PAWN JEWELRY DISCLAIMER

  • Many of the jewelry items we sell are antique, vintage, and/or pre-owned. We acquire these pieces from dealers in New Mexico, Arizona, and Nevada, who work exclusively with Native American jewelry and art. That means they had a life before we found them, and they may show evidence of that previous life; signs of wear, dents, scratches, oxidation, broken stones, etc. We strive to be accurate and transparent in our descriptions of these pieces.

  • Jewelry items are not photographed to scale. We’re not trying to be tricky, our clothing items aren’t photographed to scale either (imagine how large that catalog would be!). Please check the description for the item’s dimensions and feel free to email us with any questions.

  • We are not gemologists. We choose pieces based on their overall aesthetic and how well they accessorize the Double D Ranch collection. Due to the high quality of laboratory-made stones and the influx of fake “Native American” jewelry from the Middle East, we rely heavily on our vetted suppliers to maintain a level of confidence in the quality of stones, provenance, and authenticity of each piece. We try our best to accurately describe the stones in our jewelry items but cannot absolutely guarantee them.

  • We celebrate aging. In ourselves, and in our jewelry. We want the true age of the piece to be represented, so we do not perform any type of cleaning or polishing. If the item is oxidized when we acquire it, that is precisely how you will receive it.
