Because I have absolutely no sense of vintage jewelry I ask your help?
Have you any idea what material and which time period these earrings might be. The hooks are sterling silver (925 hallmarked). The black parts could be glass and the transparent area too. The weight of these earrings are in total 6 gram. Please your advice !

    I find a good way of testing for glass is to tap it gently with my teeth! you can tell the difference instinctively between glass and hard polished plastic :) - marked .925 they are probably fairly modern. (they look very nicely made). Hope this helps Tilly

    I'll did what you advised and concluded it's glass. Is it still modern?

    Not necessarily, but the posts do look modern to me. I have found a gentleman in England, who takes beautiful old glass beads and resets them to modern posts for earrings so that they can still be enjoyed, which is a nice idea, this could of course be the same idea.
