    The top one that you ask if it's a button has writing going down the spiral is there any way you can do a rubbing of the lettering.The other may have ended up as a fishing weight but I think maybe it might have been a curtain weight?A fishing weight would have been solid lead and this has a different metal inside it.

    A photo of it next to something( hopefully a ruler) to gauge its dimensions might help...

    Fancy Jeans button for sure.

    Here is a reference for the rivet style.
    Jeans buttons are very consistent in the way they attach to the material
