Nice little set of vintage sterling silver clips. Vermeil plate that does show some wear. The amethyst rhinestone crystals have really pretty prongs setting them into the findings. All are secure and there are no chips or flea bites to the glass. On the inside of the back clip - they are marked STER Pat. 1967965. I tested them with a magnet and they pass so I'm assuming that the STER part means they are indeed sterling. The outside of the clips has a unique etched scrolling design with a flower in the middle - they are really pretty. Again from the estate lot - only set I have.
