    These were my grandmother's. I don't have a clue as to their age,
    The 1st on, and my favorite is 14k gold. The grape design is so delicate. There is a shield for engraving, but it's never been engraved. The other two are sterling, the center one has 6 pieces of coral.

      According to "Sewing Tools & Trinkets Collector's Identification & Value guide." Updated 2000.
      The middle one says " England; sterling, with 10 carat band and coral; $85.00. That was in 2000
      I didn't find the other two.
