Ditto the carved Shou pattern on the blue beads. Whether they're glass or dyed quartz is hard to discern from the photos. If you use a loupe, can you see tiny air bubbles? That would indicate glass.

Chinese bead components were used by fashion jewelry manufacturers such as Miriam Haskell in the 1930s, so the pieces could be a mix as to origin.
