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.

- DIY Starter’s Guide To Product Photography
DIY-stuff 4I like the way Alex showed building DIY (Do It Yourself) studio with low costs. For me it was a bonus Alex explained how to fix too soft edges at subject as a result of too much light on background.

Good information & advises 3I started this course after having already taken few others, so I was already familiar with some of the items / principles presented but nevertheless I still learned some interesting things on DIY side. Good intro.

Wine Photography for Professionals 4The course was very informative as far as the shooting methods. It does not matter if you are a portrait photographer or a Commercial product photographer Alex has some great ideas and explanations as to why he lite the product the way he did. I would take other courses that are offered here at Photigy. The editing of the images could use some better explanation as to what and why Genia is doing. Also she needs to talk into the microphone and not at it as it was difficult to understand what she was saying. This is the only fault with the course, and why I only gave it 4 stars. I have been doing Product photography for 40+ years and I learned something in this course. I started doing product photography with 4x5 or 8x10 view cameras and always with transparencies so the lighting was exact and the strobes or hot lights needed to be color balanced for the film that you were using. Digital has made the turn around time less and now I usually get the art directors approval with in an hour after it is in his mail.
