This vintage jewellery is in fantastic condition. This SELRO style lemon crystal link bracelet is unusual and beautiful. This is not a SELRO bracelet but this kind of bracelet is often wrongly described and sold as SELRO.
This chunky wide bracelet is a real statement piece and features unusual pale yellow foil backed faceted glass in the form of diamond shapes. The bracelet has 4 links (SELRO bracelets have 5 links). What really makes this bracelet special are the book style links which have very fine engraved markings that make each link look like a book spine. The links are very strong and the bracelet is a very high quality and features excellent workmanship.
Surrounding the glass diamond shaped cabochons are gold tone (brass) flower shapes. The clasp itself is gorgeous with a faux pearl in good condition.
The 1950s bracelet is truly sparkly and special with its pale glass elements and is very well constructed. The bracelet is heavy and weighs 91 grams. It measures 19 cm (7.5 inches). Presented in a beautiful satin drawstring bag.
PLEASE NOTE – There are a lot of bogus claims about Selro jewellery so it is important to be aware of the ways to properly identify them. Kathie Davies has done some incredible research and has developed a website to help people correctly identify Selro jewellery and, more importantly, to identify fakes. This was a bracelet which we recently received which was described as SELRO but is actually not made by that company. It is still a gorgeous piece of jewellery but at Kikulu we would not sell it with the wrong description as we care very much about our reputation.
About SELRO and SELINI jewellery
Although often used together the jewellery is rarely from both SELRO (which was a company started in the US in the 1940s by Paul Selenger) and SELINI which was another company run by Selenger. Selenger was responsible for the design of Selenger/Selini pieces.
Famous for the ‘Many faces’ of Selro – the jewellery featured Asian faces and this is what the company is most famous for.
Much of Selro/Selini jewelry is unsigned and was originally hang-tagged. There are some clues, however, to identifying unmarked Selro/Selini jewelry. Much of what is sold as SELRO/SELINI is not actually produced by them. Signed pieces are very rare.
