Unsigned yet unmistakable Selro, circa 1950s. Large antiqued silver tone clip earrings burst with round glowing iridescent blue cabochons accented with blue chaton rhinestones and lustrous faux turquoise marquise cabochons. In typical Selro fashion, cabs are fancy dog tooth prong set with textured pierced leaf details and signature Selro roped cup settings.

Paul Selenger paid homage to his mother Rose by naming his Selro Corporation in her honor. Introduced in the late 1940s-early 1950s, it's Selini line was a later addition. Selro, of course, is known for it's face jewelry, Noh masks, confetti cabochons and bolo necklaces. Designs were bold, stones selections interesting and colors vivid. It ceased operation sometime in the 1970s, a victim of the great costume collapse.

The earring presented are a generous approximate 1 1/2 inches x 1 inch with a 3/8 inch profile or height. Domed iridescent cabs are about 13 millimeters, largest chatons, 8 millimeters and robins egg blue marquise cabs, 12 millimeters x 4 millimeters. Weight of the earrings pair is 25.9 grams.

Condition is excellent / near pristine vintage. All components intact. All cabs retain blue iridescence. All rhinestones retain consistent color and brilliance. No cloudy, off or dead stones.
