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.

Kathie, thank you for providing this treasure trove of information AND photos to help with identification. Your dedication, hard work and love of this jewelry is obvious! - Marisa, Mon, 2 Jan 2017 2:55AM
Thanks Kathy for all your hard work in helping us identify true Selro jewelry. Are you writing a book? If so I would very much love to buy a copy. If you are keeping a list of others like me, please keep my email address and let me know when and where I can get a copy. Thanks again. cheryl - cheryl gowdy, Mon, 28 Sep 2015 4:45PM
I have a set that I really could use help identifying. I've not found anything like it anywhere and am desperate. It was suggested I try contacting you. Are you able to help? Thank you!! What a great site! - Barbara | http://www.zibbet.com/LustfulJewels, Thu, 16 Jan 2014 11:15AM
RE: #13. The Noh Devil's mask with the green turban and rhinestones. I was able to buy (at an extraordinarily affordable price) the same earrings and a brooch, but with a pink turban and purple rhinestones. It is also signed by Selro Corp. I love it! - Cg Shaffer, Thu, 3 Oct 2013 6:08PM
I was fortunate enough to find and purchase #17, also in black. Thank you for such an informative site. - Robyn Reese | email@example.com, Wed, 2 Oct 2013 9:20PM
I have a bracelet like #14 but in white with green and purple stones. Plus the earrings to go with it. 2 purple stones are missing. My mother and her sister each bought a set in different colors. I'm 67...not sure what year they got them. Would like to sell them now - Paula Whitener, Fri, 6 Sep 2013 12:05AM

This is so helpful. I have some selro pieces, but I have never known much about them which isn't unusual! - norma adams | adams@rubylane, Mon, 18 Feb 2013 7:03AM
I bought a pin like #17, but it was jade green in color. It was unmarked, but attributed to selro. I was trying to find it on the web and was surprised to see an exact replica. Your site is just wonderful. - Katie Ta, Wed, 17 Oct 2012 5:41PM
