Traditionally, a tassel is defined as a hanging ornament usually in the form of threads suspending from cord. Jewelers have long interpreted tassels in a myriad of ways using a wide variety of materials. The popularity of tassels in jewelry can be seen down through the ages. Beaded, braided, and made from popular motifs of the era, tassels are infinitely articulated and lend movement and sensuality to jewelry.
