Wonderful carved molded faux ivory Buddha figures grace the five bracelet panels and single necklace medallion in this mid century brass tone set. Each hand over heart Buddha is highlighted with black paint / enamel and is underscored with a faux jade ingot cabochon. Splayed throne backgrounds in brass tone metal accented with amethyst rhinestones and lustrous white faux pearls enshrine Buddha. Double fancy connector bars link bracelet panels and necklace medallion. Adjustable necklace features bilateral chains set with four faux jade lozenge cabs on each side.
The necklace is adjustable to about 16 1/2 inches with charmed chain end and hook closure. The medallion is about 1 3/4 inches x 1 3/16 inches with a 3/8 inch profile or height. The bracelet is approximately 7 inches x 1 3/4 inch with fold over clasp. Rectangular green cabs are 15 millimeters x 7 millimeters; rhinestones and simulated pearls, 2 millimeters. Buddhas are about 1 inch x 5/8 inch x 3/8 inch. Weight of the bracelet is 98.8 grams; necklace, 56.1 grams for a generous set total of 154.9 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components original and intact. Molded Buddhas retain majority of black highlighting. No chips, nicks, cracks, breaks or discoloration. All imitation pearls retain nacre and luster. All rhinestones retain purple color and sparkle. Faux jade panels retain consistent green color. Metal has acquired a warm brass tone patina. No polishing done. Connections, links, soldering and clasp strong and secure. Clean. No damage / no repairs. Excellent vintage.
The necklace and bracelet are not signed. Although we feel the quality is comparable, most sources indicate the pieces were not made by Selro. Circa 1950s-1960s.
