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.

Valuable Investment 5This course has instantly progressed the photography of my jewelry line to a professional level. I'm saving valuable time in shooting and post production and can focus more time on my art...making jewelry...however, now I am a little bit curious to do product photography for additional income. Thank you!

Video is missing 4Hi Alex, I really enjoyed this course, it is great, but as other participants said, the examples are little bit few and I would like to see some objects on black glossy surface and black background! And I noticed on the presentation video that you mentioned there will be a shooting with actual model, but I didn't see this video in the course, maybe you forgot to put it there :). Thank you very much and happy Easter for all of you that are celebrating !, Hamudi
