Questions about Decorations on American Waltham Dial Empty

Hi,

I have a 1884 American Waltham pocketwatch that I'm curious about. I've used the Waltham database to identify the date, model, etc., but was wondering if anyone had a guess about what the decorations are made from.
The "jewels" are either set into or stuck onto the ceramic dial. On a close up, it looks like the color is wearing off of one, or more, of them, which leads me to think they are colored, or painted, glass.
Also, it has small, raised golden crescents, diamonds, dots, and stylized flowers or fleur de lis. Would these likely have any gold content at all, or are they more likely to be gold colored metal? If the latter, what would it be?
I'm more of a wristwatch guy, so I'll probably sell this at some point in the future, and would like to be able to describe it with as much accuracy as possible.
Any help will be very much appreciated.
Thanks,
Mercury
