Hello and welcome to my website. Please feel free to browse the many pages of data, here, provided for everyone to identify their Selro jewelry. I would like to ask people to please stop calling this jewelry Selro/Selini. It is not both. Because sellers have decided to do this to get sales, now even
Google and eBay are picking up on the mistake and it is incorrect. There have been a very, very few RARE instances with both marks which are probably end-of-day pieces, nothing more. By doing this, people are just perpetuating the mistake!
Please check the updates in the *NOT Selro But Often Mistaken For It* album for newly added information up at the top of that page and also the new album for connectors and backs that are non-Selro or Selini.
Please note: I do not offer Jewelry Appraisals or Estimates. Thank you!
This is not a site for selling, but a site for education on the wonderful jewelry known as Selro and Selini.
These are images of as many Selro or Selini Noh mask face pieces that I can fit on the first page. There is a drop-down menu up at the top so you can move from page to page, easily. Just click it and you will see all the various pages for the albums.
These are identification pages for jewelry by the name Selro and also Selini, both creations by Paul Selenger. Most of it was unsigned and came with hang tags or on a card so in order to wear it, the owner would discard the tag or card. Many, many people have trouble identifying it and many sellers misrepresent it. This has been a 12 year work in progress job of mine, all at my own expense and time, to make it right. Of course, I totally LOVE the jewelry and it's about the only costume jewelry I buy for my own personal collection.
Noh mask (White) Okina (Hakushikijyo)
The mask is of an older male with long white beard expressing wisdom.
The Okina mask takes its origin from the traditional Genryu style of Noh play called "Dance of Monkeys" and it features movable jaw & eyebrows.
