Get it tested
by: Anonymous

I have a pair of 900 earrings that are bright yellow, from Asia somewhere, and while one clutchback says 900, the other says 21.6K. Get it tested.

900 is also platinum, though the color is confusing

.900 is Coin Silver
by: Anonymous

Many European countries mark silver and gold with numerical fineness marks in thousandths, e.g.,

SILVER: 800, 830, 900, 935, etc.

GOLD, 333, 500, 585, 750, 875, etc.

900 was dubbed "COIN SILVER" because coin silver (.900) was the silver standard for coins and lots of silversmiths used to melt the coins to make jewelry & watch cases.

if the color of the metal is gold then they might have been plated in gold. Electroplating was first used in the 1840s.
