These are plastic grommet rings. I bought them to replace a set just like them, because when I took the drapery panels to the cleaners just to press, they came back minus the silver coating. Somehow, the pressing process (probably the steam), completely removed the silver color, and left me with an off-white/creamy color. I ordered this new set, and took them to the cleaner to replace them.
The package says they will work on drapery-weight or lined curtains, but they really don't. If you have too much thickness, you have to find a way to reduce it. In my case, I had to reach in and cut out a strip of the stiffener I had sewed into the top all around the hole in order to get the two halves of the grommet to snap together.
