Maybe some of these are for collars or something too, I don't really know, but I do recognize cufflinks and the tie bar clip?? All of these pieces bear the SWANK brand mark, no matter their purpose. I remember my own Dad had some SWANK items of his own (not these, though) and I remember seeing all sorts of their stuff displayed in the jewelry department display cases at department stores when I was younger -- so now I have some of my own, I guess. ;-) Turns out the company has a rather long and distinguished history, though I'm not sure if they're still making anything under that name or not . . . ?
Anyway. All but the tie bar and B cufflink pair are silvertone, those two goldtone. The tie bar has a sword shape with a blue accent 'stone', looks like it would clip onto the tie itself on either end, then hook to the shirt on its back. The small pair at lower LH side have springloaded posts, at center there are two sets of round and one hexagonal pairs hooked together with a link -- all these have black 'stones' inset. Upper LH are a metal 'cubic' design, upper RH a dark oval 'stone' with accent on its setting, both those have typical cufflink backs. (like the goldtone B's)
