Here is an interesting Sterling silver, lightly gilt, piece by the Danish master silversmith Niels Erik From (see bio). It stems from an era during which silversmiths created decorations for men to wear around their shirt collars instead of silk ties. This 'bolo' fashion was shortlived, as Danes gave up wearing formal button-up shirts altogether.

This piece features 4 freely moving sections hanging from the band  A leather cord or elastic inserted through the holes at each end  will allow the band to be tied around the neck underneath the shirt collar, with the front section folded over. The tie section can be disconnected and worn on a neckring.
