They appear to be vintage Austrian/Czech crystal beads, a style that has been popular for decades and is still being made and sold in Europe. They're crystal and not glass, meaning they are made from a solid that is mined rather than created in a glassmaking process. There are a ton of these at antiques shops, so you can readily Google "Czech crystal bead necklace" and see many like yours. They vary a little in the number and shape of facets, and the shape of the beads themselves.

Nice!

If you're asking what necklaces like this sell for, just so do a search on jewelry and collectibles websites. It's not hard at all to find pieces like this. Because there are a great many similar necklaces out there, this tends to keep prices down compared to more rare items.

I've personally found things like this for roughly $10-$50 USD, and higher if the strand is longer and/or more special in some way. They aren't terribly valuable, but pretty.
