First Image: I believe these are used to work jewel setting holes. They also work well in a pinch for holding small items such as balance screws.

Second Image: No clue!

Both tools are for repairing burnished-in jewels. The first photo shows tools that (I believe) are only for opening the lip in the plate so that a new jewel can be placed. The second photo is a set that includes one adjustable tool to open the setting and an assortment of tips used to close the setting again.
