    These earrings are a part of the silver package I bought from my friend, Geri, this past Saturday. The earrings on the left have the .925 stamp and an "L" inside a circle. Wires stamped . 925. That black strip is from a sticker, which as since been cleaned off.

    The crescent earrings have the "ZII" mark on the posts and an .825 stamp on the inside of the crescents. Definitely continental.

    Have not researched these fully yet. Something for me to do tonight. :-)))

    Thanks for looking/loving, CW friends!

      You were thinking of me when you found these.....bahahaha!
      Lovely Bonnie
      I would wear those crescent pair all the time ;)
      You are finding some beautiful jewelry!

      shareurpassion - they are continental stamps. The silver content .825 is used in only a handful of countries.

      ZI = .925
      ZII = .835 and below

      Thanks, Nevada!

      melaniej - LOL! The crescent earrings are particularly interesting to me. The .825 mark doesn't help me pin down where they were made, as numerous countries here in Europe and elsewhere make .825 jewelry.

      The long ones have such an Asian look -- Japonisme? Are these turquoise, Bonnie? They are beautiful. :)

      katherine - yes, all are turquoise. I agree that they do have an oriental look. I still have to see if I can find that mark. :-))
