This vintage rare Selro jewellery is in fantastic condition. This unsigned SELRO green confetti bracelet is a lovely example of genuine SELRO jewellery. Most Selini or Selro jewellery pieces were not signed.
Featuring suffrage colours of purple and green this chunky wide bracelet is a real statement piece. It has all the hallmarks of a genuine SELRO bracelet. SELRO bracelets usually have 5 links. Each link has a marquise shaped confetti lucite cabochon with both purple and green flecks. Surrounding the cabochon are 4 green small moonglow cabochons and two purple rhinestones all set in silvertone metal leaves and cat faces. The cat faces are another signature element of a genuine SELRO bracelet. SELRO bracelets also tend to be the same size – 7.5 inches.
The 1950s bracelet is truly sparkly and special with its lovely colour combination and should be enjoyed by SELRO collectors or simply because it is beautiful and very well constructed.
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. We recently received some pieces of jewellery which were describes as SELRO but are actually not made by that company. They are still lovely items of jewellery but at Kikulu we would not sell them with the wrong description as we care very much about our reputation. We will be listing those shortly as NOT SELRO.
The bracelet is heavy and weighs 144 grams. It measures 19 cm (7.5 inches). Presented in a beautiful satin drawstring bag.
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.
