These necklaces I am pretty sure are not antique nor of any high value. Hope this information is not too disapointing.

Tibetian silver work is usually higher detailed and of much better quality. These are what married women would wear like a wedding ring but around thier neck, 

Material: Tibetian Silver - which is made of copper, zinc, tin, nickel alloy and perhaps a little bit of silver if any. Because of this they will turn your skin green. I have had some experience with tibetian silver pieces and it was not good (green finger but not from envey). These are very common to find in China a bit in India, but more so in Afganistan and Pakistan. 

I would recommend you frame them to prevent oxidzation and keep the air off them. 

All though they are very cool conversation pieces and interesting their value is little.

Estmate value $20 - $40 US each. There are many out there.

I figure these would date to 1950;s - 1970;s

Kindest Regards ..
