I would not even know that your shots are about the jewelry. I think the best advice could be to recommend you this class: https://www.photigy.com/course/jewelry-workshop-with-model-post-production/#
This is not my field of expertise, so my main advice, besides the class above, is to study jewelry ads. How often does the model look into the camera?
There is lots of room to improve in the hair and makeup for the model, the lighting (it is common to add a behind the scenes image, so that you can judge the lighting setup), as well as the post production.

Welcome to Photigy, Thanks for posting and becoming part of the community.
When your posting images on Photigy please include at least one behind the scene image of how you shot the image. It might also be helpful if you include equipment used and camera settings. Since Photigy is a educational community we want the education to go both ways. You educate us with the BTS image and camera settings and we give you feedback on your images. So please include a BTS image or lighting diagram (actual images preferred over diagram) as soon as possible. You will also find that most of the membership will not respond to a post if a BTS image is not provided. You can look at some of the other posts to get an idea what the other members are posting for BTS images. If you have forgotten to take a BTS image before you have torn down the set as a last resort you can use a lightingdiagram.com if you must.

Good start, but you need to do more work on them. Since we already have covered exactly this type of shots on the course Andreas suggested (https://www.photigy.com/course/jewelry-workshop-with-model-post-production/#), I’ll suggest the same.
Tae a course, see what you can do better based on lessons, and come back with new shots.

let's start 4thanks for the introduction.
jakeStudio Basics Photographer’s Bootcamp (starter course)
Good start with the basics but should improve 3The difference between direct reflections, diffuse reflections and glare not mentioned. The photographer take the reflections of light. So each reflection should be explained throughly. The module focuses on direct reflections only. Which is very restricting. There should be a clear definition of specular higlight, specular edge transfer and shadow edge transfer. This things are just called gradient. Not enough for a paid course. Other information about camera settings, lens effects is decentPeople Photography

Tough to Review 3How to measure effectiveness of a course without a course objective? It is nice to go through to get some viewpoints on lighting options but not much else besides that. Broadening the scope to include some elements to composition in addition to lighting would be better in my view.
