A little history about the designer from Google search
Costume jewelry aficionados have long admired the mysterious faces of Selro jewelry, but little was known about the company itself or the man behind the manufacture of
this incredible jewelry.
Paul Selenger was born in Odessa, Russia in 1911. In 1927, he immigrated to the United States with his mother Rose and sister Fannie. The family settled in Brooklyn, New York and by 1930 Selenger and his sister had jobs as salespeople in a novelty store. Selenger became a U.S. citizen in 1942 and served his new country as a Staff Sergeant in North Africa during World War II.
Early in his costume jewelry career, he worked for H. Pomerantz & Co. in New York. At some point in the late 1940s, Selenger opened his own firm, Selro, which was named for his mother Rose. His sister Fanny also helped him in the business. Selenger’s niece Marian Faytell says that her uncle had his own factory in New York City from the 1950s to the early 1960s. The factory was located in the area of the West 30s in Manhattan and Selenger employed a model maker and others who did ‘bench’ work. Faytell believes that later on he may have also had another manufacturing location in Providence, RI. Faytell remembers him traveling weekly to Providence.
