#1 I would say was a tiny baby Turbinidae rather than Trochidae. #2 I have no idea and #3 is Tectus fenestratus.
If I can just make a couple of points: 1/ it makes life a lot easier if you photograph your shells in better light, #1 is a very dark image, and 2/ Can I suggest you use a plain background when you photograph them, sometimes it is hard to pick out detail amongst a colourful background. Plain grey is probably the best.
These are just a couple of suggestions to make identification easier for us, it is not intended as any kind of criticism.

#3 is not a Calliostoma species, it has a 'tooth' on the columnella which Calliostoma never has. I still say it is a baby Tectus fenestratus.

pardon me sir Dave, number error. i was referring to #2 as calliostoma sp not the #3 in which i consider you identified it correctly. my mistake in typing error  :-[

sorry again,

#2 still has the columellar tooth, but it is too small to say really. it is a juvenile perhaps?
