I’ll venture a guess from the pictures, pic 1) top left looks like nephrite and could be Xinjing the carving translucency and oily texture fit, the color is a bit off it’s a shade green better if it was creamy white or green. Top right looks like jadeite as is the bottom piece of the two the upper is better quality. The real experts here I’m sure will give you the best advice and I’m curious what is said about the other two in the second photo. I did at one time have an old xinjing nepherite Bi disk with similar silver wash, I’m curious about yours.
Best of luck

Not sure why the second photo is posted under the title "Chinese Jade???"

They are Japanese metal alloy sword fittings, specifically they are called "Tsuba". The tsuba is the hand guard of the sword.
